Reflecting on their friendship. Terry continued: “I will remember the deep love and loyalty you had for your family. I will remember it every time I ask work to make time for me to be with my family.

“I will remember how you sent me pictures of Fall trees in NJ because you knew how much I missed that time of year back east. I will remember you calling me Melly Fume.

“I will remember so much. I really thought I’d see you again,” he concluded.

Before his death and diagnosis, Andre revealed that he spent more time focusing on his family than his career, but he didn’t regret it.

In 2020, he told Variety: “It’s been an interesting career, but I think it could have been larger. I think it could have spanned more disciplines: directing, producing, all these other different things. But it would have been at the expense of my own life.”
