    I hate the way it says Andrew was survived by wife and 2 daughters. I was his partner for many years as he was legally separated. One daughter was to another women when we weren’t together. I knew Andrew 17 years and dated for 7 years. People always saw us together. Sad to see they report he left a wife. May my darling rest in peace.
