    I am truly sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the Gaston family find comfort and strength in Jesus promise along with our heavenly father Jehovah of the earthly resurrection, where death will be eliminated forever. Truly, what a glorious and almost unbelievable day that will be! It’s a reality though for God cannot lie!

    June we were sorry to hear of Andy’s death. We enjoyed our friendship with you both at Riverside and have fond memories. We heard lots of stories about the antics the “boys” got into for our annual Mardi Gras parade and we were only sorry we hadn’t been there earlier to experience those days. We also enjoyed the car/park rallies that Andy was involved planning. We remember hunting all over for the landmark which turned out to be a trailer right before our eyes – we missed it. We are glad Andy was there to see your son happily married. Lee & Celia

    Met Andy many years ago at Scott’s ; the following week we were in the Legion rally; Andy as the pilot, me the navigator….we placed eighth. This started many years of friendship till I left for Cowtown in 1972. Whenever I visited 2Mts we’d bump into each other …Andy was a great guy, always keenly interested , always that Gaston smile….truly missed! My condolences ….
