  1. Àñdy was weak for a !ong time but he was strong in spirit. His house was very beautiful and very artistic and it was a complete work of art. Being in that atmosphere I would go home and paint a lot and feel so happy to paint. He was not only a great artist but also had understand a lot about problems with people. He might have gotten those interests from being in the military. I wish he had been a teacher at Alfred and me and my husband are so sad that he passed us.
