    The Hesters all loved Andy dearly, and his death leaves a deep, profound scar on the soul of the universe. Andy was witty, talented, charming, and brilliant, and his footprint at RMHS and on the hearts of so many Gryphons will not fade with time. May you have peace as you reflect on the goodness he brought to the world. With love, Betsy and Joe Hester, Joey Hester, and Maggie Hester (Cromer).

    Andy was a member of Amnesty International with me at UNCW. While I haven't kept in touch with him, I was struck by his kindness and his commitment to ensuring that everyone had their human rights respected, no matter what. He was a good man, and devoted to others. I am so sad to hear of this loss, and will be remembering his family and friends in my prayers.

    I didn't know Andy personally, but I was a fan of his youtube channel. Andy was a very sharp guy who had knowledge in many areas. He seemed very compassionate towards others and touched on many important topics. I always enjoyed listening to him and many times I learned something. Andy was a very talented person. I believe he had a lot to offer this world and it is our loss that he is gone. My condolences to Andy's friendsd and family. He will be remembered.
