I know that I'm one in the long line of "sorry". I also know that nothing I say can make your pain go away. But I want to say Thank you. Andy was a brave man, he served his country and made it safer for me and my family for one more day. I am truly sorry for your loss."

"To the Family of SGT Andy Stevens:

Andy will be dearly missed. I am very sorry for your loss. I can remember when Andy first came to HI. Being one of his first roomies in the Corps I can remember him well. I wouldn't even be suprised if he disliked me at first. After time we become good friends and shared some great time. Andy always brought a smile to people, sometimes with his song and dance and other times with simply his good nature. If you have had the pleasure to knowing Andy I am sure you have seen his performance to " Staying Alive", and other tunes of that time period. Andy you are missed and loved. Thank you for all you have done. See you on the other side my friend......."
