Its a Blessing to know that Andrew has been "Promoted to Heaven".

What a Kind and Loving Man he was, and a Perfect Gentleman.

He served His Family Well and left behind a Legacy of Serving God.

When He was a Boy He lived with my Grand Parents Arthur and Elizabeth Rice on Black Island for a time.

I was privileged to have such a Wonderful Person as a Cousin and when, I visited him and Marie a few years ago they Inspired me Spiritually.

To His Lovely Wife and Extensive Family we offer our Prayers and Consolation, in knowing that He has gone to his Mansion that Jesus spoke about.

Revelation 14:13
And I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from now on: Yes, said the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.

Be Blessed : Malcolm Rice, Alwin and Almon Rice, Patsy and Bill Bulgin

There is no better place that your Dad could be right now than what is described in hymn #150 as you know by art:

Sing his mercy and his grace
In the mansions bright and blessed
He'll prepare for us a place"

What a day of rejoicing that will be
