 Hale was my favorite uncle and a precious beautiful soul.  I remember the few years he spent living in our home in New Orleans before he enlisted.  He was a special gift to this world.

So sorry to read that Andy passed away.  Mary Lou, please accept our deepest sympathy.  Andy, after you moved I never did have another Christmas cake as good as yours. Rest in peace, and may you have lots of fun playing golf.

 It was an honor to know "Pop Tom" as we called him.  He was a major influence in my becoming an Air Force pilot and he always had such a positive yet crazy way about him!  A serious answer was hard to come by at first.  But he always took time to hear my concerns.  I will miss him,but will never forget him.  

With Love,

Steve Tigner

So sorry to hear Andy passed away.  Mary Lou, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  I recall at Glascow AFB, Andy & I would pull alert on Christmas day so the younger fliers could spend time with their families.  He was a super guy and bet he flew right by Saint pete through the golden gates.  Ed, Roma & Liz..
