From the FIRST MATE's

In Memory of Andrew Nash
JD Ritzy's Fantasy of Lights

Evansville, Indiana

Easter Seals in Evansville IN has a Christmas Light Display to raise money, cars drive through and see the various displays. The above photo is for Andrew Nash. He was our daughter Nikki's boyfriend when they were in Pre-School at the Rehabilitation Center. She was three and he was in her class. He had spina bifida and would wait for her to get to school. When she got off the school bus, she in her walker and he in his chair, they would race to class. A year or two later he passed away. There is a small marker for him at the Rehabilitation Center and when ever we are there she always stops to see his marker. She is now 21. His parents are Debby and Brad Nash. I think this is one of the best pictures I have ever taken. - Submitted by Don Counts (photo taken by Don Counts).

I emailed this picture to Andrew's parents. They gave me actual dates that Andrew had surgery on August 1st and passed away on March 25, 1994. They said "Thank you once again for a wonderful story about our son, we know he touched so many lives in his short life".
