    After watching the series it was obvious Andy was of high intelligence and had an admirable work ethic, he should have been a rich man with the knowledge he posessed of mining, but, maybe he was anyway, inside himself.

    I am sorry for the loss, he was a true family man. I loved the Coal Show and how close he and Andrew were. My prayers are with you all.
