I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers to the family of Andre.When I first moved to Smiths Falls, ON back in the early 90's people assumed that we were related but that was not the case. I presume that somewhere down the line that we could be since our last names are the same. We've been friends for nearly three decades now and and I looked forward to to chatting with him each time we bumped into each other at the book store. He will be missed.
As a young teenager, I worked at the Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS). Andre took me under his wing, teaching me about compassion and justice for animals without families. He was somewhat of a father figure to me, at a time when I really needed it. I'm reminded of a quote from "A reason, a season or a lifetime".
Andre was definitely a Reason and a Season in my life. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. ❤️
