That made my morning, probably weekend and week too. I’ve admired the guy for some time now. I’m not surprised at all by this gesture. Congratulations.

Hey Ryan, congrats on the daddy factor! That’s a life changer!

That’s a really cool story…...Andy is a stand up guy! I’ve admired his work for quite awhile now…..that is a beautiful gift….............

Hope you are getting settled now and thinking about finishing up that rocker…..it’s going to be a beauty!

My best to the family.

A nice story. And it doesn’t surprise me one bit. There are a lot of good people out there, and Andy is amongst the best. A man’s man. Or is that a cowboy’s cowboy?

Congratulations on the new addition. You’ll have many good memories to look forward to.
