Andrew and I graduated from Southampton High together. He was truly a really great guy! Those weren't just words, he truly was! And so funny! We would always crack on each other! A true sweetheart of a guy. My heart continues to go out to his family. I have thought of him often over the years and it just broke my heart when I heard. He sat behind me in English class and one day I had a notion to dye my hair black (not far off from my natural color) nobody had even noticed I had colored it, except for Andrew. Im not sure why I remember that, but, he paid attention to people and he was sincere in both actions and words. A terrific guy!
