RIP Andy Moreno

I met Andy when I was in my early teens in Oxnard, California. My mom had gotten my sister & I involved in the Muscular Dystrophy Telethon. We met Andy there - he was my age and in a wheelchair. He had MD and was told he wouldn't make it past his teens. We all became fast friends. Until I left Californ...ia in 1976, every year we did the MD Telethon w/Andy and his family. When my late husband was stationed in California in 1990, the first road trip I took was to visit Andy. He was so excited to see me! We kept in touch every Christmas. His brother called me last night to tell me Andy died 12/31. For someone who was suppoed to have died as a teen, he proved them all wrong and lived life to the fullest.
