Andre was close friends with my brother, Al. They worked together for years and their strong friendship endured through retirement. She was a spirited, bright person. I kept in touch with her after my brother's death and sadly noted that her health had declined recently. Hope her eternity is peaceful and happy.

My heartfelt thank you to Andre for her inexhaustible patience, encouragement, love and support, and for giving me the opportunity to express myself both as my teacher and as a friend. She truly made a difference in my life.
