    You’ve never seen “The Boondock Saints”, Stacy? It’s about two devout Irish Catholic brothers and their “da” who turn vigilante and go on a killing spree to rid the town of evil and corrupt forces. “The Blood of Cuchulainn” is its theme song.

    I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to the wake. I was thinking of you guys, last Saturday, wishing I could be there – I loved that big lug, and will sorely miss him.

    My word for Andrew would have been, “lionhearted”:

    “brave, daring, bold, heroic, courageous, stalwart, resolute, intrepid, valiant, dauntless, valorous”
