Andrew was such a great teacher! I was one of Andrew's students studying Latin while at Purdue. Sorry to hear he has passed. I have just found out he had passed in 2009. I hope to see him again! What a great man! Andy Thorn

Dear Hannas Family,

I just received the sad news this a.m. from Andy&s college room mate at Purdue, Fort Holcombe.

As I lived next door to Andy in the dormitory, he always impressed me with his friendliness and intelligence. I always wished I had been able to cross paths with him after college.

Please accept my deepest sympathy to the Hannas family.

Just read in the Purdue Alumus Memoriams section today (January 24th). Very startled to see my only college room mate has passed on. I have great memories of Andy and times spent with him and his family. I am very sad to not have gotten to spend more time with him after he gratuated from Harvard, but am so happy that I did get to visit him duing his time in Boston. My experiences at Purdue were greatly enhanced by time spent with Andy and our adventures in the greater Lafayette area. I send my condolences to his mother, brothers and sisters to whom I still remember good times with in both Lafayette and Kansas City. Sorry for the loss of a very special person.
Sincerely, Fort.

I was shocked and saddened to find a link for the obituary for Andy. I am so sorry for your loss. Our world is a poorer place without him and it seems incomprehensible that he has gone.

It has been almost 40 years but his name will always be in my heart. I periodically googled his name to see if I could find a contact for him and never had success until now. It seems ironic that his death gave me the means to find him and that he landed in Indiana while I returned to Boston.

My best to the family and hope all are well. I am happy to see that he pursued his dream to be a Shakespearean scholar and get his doctorate. I often pass by Harvard Medical School on the way to Children&s Hospital and get flashback to a memory of him playing tennis on the dorm court with the sun glinting off his hair.

May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared, comfort you now and in the days ahead.

My sincere condolences,
