Here's hoping we are all doing something to insure kids today grow up loving and making music.

What a fantastic guy - and a terrific legacy to leave behind as well.

On the dullest day, music will brighten it up!!

He may be gone, but he will not be forgotten by those kids!

What a great guy! Sympathies to his friends and family.

Roberta is right though, he may be gone, but to those kids, he'll live forever!

I remember when I first saw his articles surfacing the extreme and immediate sense of joy I felt reading about what he was doing...
He will be missed. Hopefully someone is trying on his BIG pair of shoes soon

I hope his legacy and foundation live to carry on doing what he so obviously loved.

He reminded me of Mr. Brown, who was my introduction to playing music. I was 12 and walking home from school with a friend who said she had to stop by the band room to get some papers for her parents to sign so she could play a school instrument.

Mr. Brown (I don't even remember his first name) asked me what I wanted to play. When I said I was just there with my friend, he said "Did you ever want to play an instrument?" "Oh, yeah, I always wanted to play the flute!" So Mr. Brown called my parents and I was on my way to a lifetime of loving playing music. This man was such an avid advocate and recruiter that there were 75 people in the band, in a school of only 200 students.

We really need more people like Andy and Mr. Brown spreading the aloha spirit in the world. :)
