So sorry to hear of Andy's passing. The Anderson family and the Nation family have a long and vibrant history. I will always remember Andy in the time where he was part of the team that won the first Tennessee State Baseball Championship in the 1970's; as well as the vacations we enjoyed in Daytona, 'back in the day'. Prayers for the family, and for Andy. God Bless.
