Dear June, David, Jen, Ryan and Emma, Welcome back to the United States. Our hearts go out to each one of you as you go through this difficult time. To June, we wish you strength and solace from the love of those who share your loss. To David and Jen, we share the same experience of losing our own fathers in the last few years and what it feels like to miss them, especially during the holiday season. We only met Andy once in person but on one of the most unforgettable days for many of us -- at Jen & David's wedding. On that lovely warm summer weekend we spent together, his cheeks were perhaps even rosier and his eyes shinier with such joy and excitement. Even though we may not have understood every word we exchanged between the accents from England, upstate NY and Japan, oh how we shared such a lovely time and how friendly he was to all of us. His smile will surely stay in our hearts as we remember him dancing across the floor with lovely June in his arms. May this Christmas be a peaceful one with lots of love from your friends and families... Warmest regards, Megumi, Jason & Akaya

To the family of Andy Crozier, Our hearts are heavy as we send this tribute to Andy. We are so sorry for your loss and, oh, so grateful that Andy came into our lives. I fondly recall meeting June and Andy at Arbor House in Granbury, Texas, when members of the Crozier, Carothers, Brillantes, and Ryan/Schultz families gathered to celebrate Christmas. I was immediately struck by Andy's gentle, warm, embracing smile. I noted, as have others, the twinkle in his eye. He had such an inviting smile - one that made me want to get to know the person behind the smile. We spent lots of time together doing puzzles while others were playing mahjong or bridge or canasta. And when we weren't doing puzzles, June re-taught me how to knit - a challenge since I'm left handed. Andy kept reassuring me that if anyone could teach me, his wife could. He said, "trust me, she's good!" - again with that twinkle in his eye. Frank and I loved being with June and Andy when they crossed the pond for weddings, showers, holiday visits. They treated us like family from the start. We loved listening to Andy's stories. And we were so impressed by his commitment to fitness. He modeled aging with grace. Most significantly, we felt so privileged to visit June and Andy when we were in England this past September. Once again we felt welcomed into their fold. We got to see June's wedding dress, David's room, and lots of memorabilia. Then we sat around around the kitchen table while Andy prepared strawberries and ice cream, and, of course, tea. He was obviously a man who knew his way around the kitchen. After our sweet treat we sat in the living room and tripped down memory lane, looking at photos while June and Andy told us story after story to accompany the photos. It was a delightful way to spend an afternoon. We will always treasure our memories of that visit. We lit a candle on the morning of December 20th to pay tribute to Andy and hold him in our thoughts and hearts. We'll forever remember him as a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend. We're so grateful he came into our lives. Rest in peace dear Andy. Love, Kathy and Frank

Dear June, David, Jen, Ryan and Emma, We would like to share with you our Memory of your beloved Andy. We are glad that we knew Andy. It seems like only yesterday when we enjoyed the company of Andy, when we gathered at a resort in near Fort Worth, in cool sunny days in December of many years ago (2002). I can still feel the warmth of the conversation and laughter we shared with Andy on a-week long Christmas gathering of the families of the Carothers, the Cozier and the Brillantes. We meet Andy the first time, but the feeling of fondness and bond was that of a close friend- a family. We can still hear the very British accent of Andy when he talks and the echoing sounds of his laughter. Since then we always feel that Andy is one member of the family just like Ryan would normally call Dolores, Lola and me, Lolo and Aj, Tito AJ. Like us to Ryan, we don’t think of Andy as nobody but rather a family. Go in Peace, Andy. We pray that YOU will be in the good hands of the Lord, AJ, Dolores and Al

Dear June, David, Jen, Ryan and Emma, I am so sorry for your loss of Andy. I know that he was a wonderful husband, Dad, father-in-law and Granda and you will miss him very much. He was such a great guy full of fun, compassion, inquisitiveness and the spirit of play. I remember one of the first times I met Andy he told us how he did yoga and proceeded to stand on his head. I don't remember how old he was but I'm sure he was in his 70s and standing on his head!!!! I was so impressed with his physical ability and balance. I remember Andy always had a warm smile and greeting and that he was such an optimistic person. He loved to do puzzles, take walks with June, and play with Ryan and Emma. I remember how persistent he was when we together worked to remove the carpet tacks from the stairwell in the condo in Rye that Jen and David were remodeling. I remember sharing a clam bake with him at Jen and David's wedding and enjoyed having him in Oklahoma for a baby shower. I am so glad that I had a chance to know Andy and to share family events with him. I also appreciate that Andy and June brought David into the world and raised him to be the fine young man, husband and father that he is. Please know that I am holding all of you close this morning and look forward to being with you next week. love and peace to all, Rich

Dear June, David, Jen, Ryan and Emma, I am so sorry for your loss. Andy was a wonderful, gentle, and kind spirit. In the 10+ years that I knew him, he always had a smile and a positive outlook on life. I will remember him for his love of puzzles, his ability to sing "Over the Bridges of Paris" endlessly to Ryan as a baby, his rosy cheeks, and the twinkle in his eye. I will always remember our visit to England and how Andy proudly prepared salad fresh out of his garden and fixed a delicious Sunday dinner from scratch. Also, I will remember how even as Andy aged he continued to challenge himself with exercise and yoga (even amazingly standing on his head for long periods of time). I feel honored that I had the privilege to know Andy and I know he will be deeply missed by many people. I wish that I could be at the memorial service and reception with you all to honor Andy tomorrow. Please know that we will have a candle lit in our house for Andy all day tomorrow and will be with you in spirit. Sending you our love and deepest condolences as you grieve today and in the days to come. Katie, Jason, Mia and Luke Brillantes
