Here are some messages left for Pap on a website that was linked to from his online obituary. This is sort of my way of making up for not being at the funeral. I’ll update it as more entries are added.


I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.


James Wilson,
Perrysburg, Ohio

Jane and family,

I am so sorry for your loss. We have always kept you and Andy in our prayers. We will keep you in our daily thoughts and prayers.

Jim and Mary Leonard,
Lexington, Kentucky

I can’t convey how much I’ve been agonizing over not being able to be in Lexington with everyone, but while everyone there will be celebrating a life that has passed, I hope to be celebrating the beginning of a new one. I love you all and wish I could be there.

Zach Dotsey,
Wilmington, North Carolina

Jane and Family,

I am sorry for your loss. I wish that I could join you for the celebration of Andy’s life and contributions.

Linda Thomas,
Ft Mitchell, Kentucky

Dear Jane, Tom, Jerry, Bernie, Therese and Steve,

It is with heavy heart that we send you our deepest sympathy. Remembering the good times helps to ease our pain for your loss. You all are in our prayers.

Bill, Marilyn, Jackie(Rieck) Vickie (Vergason) and Brad Peters

Jane & family,

Frank & I are deeply saddened by Andy’s death. We both loved Andy very much and will always have fond memories of him and you, as well. You know the story of Andy questioning Frank when he was caught harvesting vegetables in MY garden space on the SEAS property in July 1982! It makes me smile just thinking about it!

I am in Austin TX, working, until Monday, June 15th, so will not be able to attend visitation or the funeral. Frank will probably do so. I will keep Andy, you, & the family in my prayers.


Mary Oliva,
Lexington, Kentucky

Dear Jane, Tom, Jerry, Bernie, Terri and Steve,

On behalf of my Mom and Dad, Stan and Ruth and the rest of the Krebs family, Mike, Judy, Patty and Denise, we wish to extend our condolences to your family during this difficult time. We have very fond memories of Andy and the entire Dotsey family while you resided in northern Kentucky. There is not a New Years Eve celebration that goes by that my parents do not reminisce about those parties and the good times which were shared.

We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Tom Krebs,
Ft. Thomas, Kentucky

Dotsey Family,

We have kept Mr. Dotsey in our prayers for a while now and will continue to keep you all in our prayers. Mr. Dotsey was always smiling and we know he has the brightest smile now that he has gone home. Hold tight to your memories. Mr. Dotsey will be missed by many.

Kathy Whalen,
Lexington, Kentucky

Dear Jane, Tom, Jerry, Bernie and Steve,

During this difficult time, I would like for each of you to know that my sincerest thoughts and prayers are with each of you.

Growing up Gainsway with Steve makes me remember all of the good friends and good times we had and still have on those few occassions we can come together. I treasure each time. Steve, it was good to hear from you under the circumstances my friend. Be strong and take care.

See you soon.

Pete Buchholtz,
Hope Mills, North Carolina

Jane and family,

We are so sorry to hear about Andy. We were out of town at the time of his death and didn’t get home until this past week and only heard about it then. He is definitely in our prayers as well as you and your family.

Ralph & Joyce Hornback,
Lexington, Kentucky
