It is with huge sadness that this post is written to inform the many followers of this blog that Andrew died this morning.
Please remember Jane, Valentina and Sebastian in your prayers (his wife and children), as well as Brian and Pat (his parents).
It seems fitting to close with Andrew’s words, from his very first blog post, written in June 2015:
My thought for today, and the reason for the name of the blog, is that we all should slow down a little. I have been forced to slow down, but I think it has happened for a reason. I have seen what happens when I slow down. It gives me time to appreciate things, and it also gives me time to look at some of the absurdities of life.
In this blog, I will write about things which are important to me, and things which I observe. If the words I write bring about some change in the world, then I will be satisfied. If they get at least one person thinking differently, then I will be happy. If the words bring a smile to your face or gladden your heart, then that is great as well.
Let’s stop for a moment today and remember the change that Andrew brought about in our world, the way he got us thinking and the things he did that made us smile.
With love from a friend. x
P.S. This blog will be monitored over the coming weeks, so if you wish to post a comment or a memory below, in tribute to Andrew, please feel free to do so.
