Last night I was at a Relay for Life benefit for the American Cancer Society. While my wife and I were walking around the track, I couldn't help but think about Andy and Owen. I'm sure where ever Andy is, his Cuda is done, and running strong.

There is a little boy up there who loved Cudas. Give him a big hug for me Andy! Give him a ride in the Cuda too.

It's a sad day here at CC.com.

I never met him but enjoyed his involvement here.
R.I.P. Andy.

Even though I never met him, it is painful.  He was one of us.  God's speed.   :angelwings:

Rest in Peace Andy.  Even though I only met you last year at Carlisle, you left a lasting impression on me.  You will be remembered sir.
Yes I own a 1972 Dodge Challenger Convertible T/A S/E with a 440 Six Pak. Can it get any more wrong?

I was moved to tears this morning reading about Andy's worsening condition as well as the response from members working to finish his car.   The updates about him passing are sadder still.   I didn't know him but for a couple of c-c.com exchanges, but it's clear he touched a lot of people. 

As part of the funeral for a friend's Dad that occurred several years ago, there was a poem in the memorial program that rang true then as it does now.   I'm no writer, so all I can do here is share someone else's words and hope that they provide some small measure of comfort for Andy's friends and family.   


What is dying?

I am standing on the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze
and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength and I stand and watch her
until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and sky come down to mingle
with each other.

Then someone at my side says: 'There! She's gone.'
Gone where? Gone from my sight that is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she
was when she left my side,
and just as able to bear her load of living
freight to the place of destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her;
and just at the moment when someone at my side says:
'There! She's gone,'
there are others watching her coming,
and voices ready to take up the glad shout
'There she comes!'

And that is dying.
