  7. My thoughts are with you in this sad time. I first met Andy at the Funeral Service Program at Humber College back in 1980. He was a great guy and told me different stories about being on the Ambulance. The one I remember best was about how he dressed up the Ambulance with chrome rims to personalize it, kind of like the old movie “Mother, Jugs & Speed”. I believe he was telling the truth because it was a great story. Used to see him at Post Grad every 5 years until that was discontinued. A number of years ago I was privileged to meet Mark at a Funeral Directors Conference and was able to get updates on Andy. He was a fine man and will be missed.
