Jackie, Wyman, Owen, Oppie, and the rest of the Nichols family, my sincere sympathy to all of you. I knew Andy most of my life, and he was there for me and my family more times than I can count. He was a friend to my brother, Johnny, when very few were. He was a neighbor that my mother could depend upon anytime she needed help. He was truly a friend and neighbor to all of us. My heart is sad, but I feel sure that Johnny, Mrs. Lou, and Mr. Bradley are on Andy's welcoming committee in Heaven.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the Nichols family during this time and days ahead. What a loss for you, but what joy to know that Andy is with the Lord, sitting at the feet of Jesus and reunited with his son and other loved ones! May God comfort you all.

We loved Andy - when he put up two buildings for us, we talked & visited alot. Occasionally he would eat lunch w/us on the patio rather than driving home or off to pick up something.. We had numerous great conversations. He was a jokester & always knew how to cheer up someone and he LOVED his family to no end, talked about them all the time. He did lots of good work here on earth & helped alot of people; his work on earth is done now. Andy, go rest w/your heavenly Father & loved ones & friends who went to heaven before you. We are praying for your family.
