Bonnie Novak & Family
Anita, Abby, Ryan, Nathan, Sara, Donna, Kay and Families, my apologies for not sending condolences sooner, but having lived next door to you for some 17+ years, the words just wouldn't come. Was glad that a young couple was moving in and then watching a whole family grow!!! To watch Andy grow as a father, handyman and just a friend, was very special. Our chats at first, wandering into each others yards and then later "over the fence", are irreplaceable! So many things that we shared during those years come back every time I think of "home". You, Andy and the kids were the "perfect" family and it made me soo happy. Oh yes, I do know there were rough times, our houses were a little to close at times, haha, but you made it work through good times and bad. I knew that if I needed something, was no need to hesitate, at home or the office, it was take n care of. Oh the laughs we'd have over the kids and their antics, priceless!!! It's been and honor and a priviledge to have had you both as a neighbor and friends. I know he will be missed so terribly, but I believe he is making sure you are all taken care of and that he can do this and no longer be in pain. My family always enjoyed visiting as they got to visit with your family too!!! I/WE will miss Andy terribly. A great man!!! Strong, gentle, humorous, but a stern side just to keep you in line!! I know you will all keep him close to you and he will live on in you all. I think about you all, everyday and hope that your pain is just a bit lighter when the sun rises. Take care of yourselves. Anita, Abby, you know where to find me just for a chat. Will always be there!!! BIG HUGS to you all, XOXOXOXOXO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
