Andy Cornett

November 29, 2050 — February 24, 2012

_Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of Joy._ Psalms 47:1

A man who lived life with an open mind, heart, and soul...
A man who was strong, gentle, and kind...
He was an inspiration to those in his life and found inspiration from a myriad of sources...
He was wise yet playful and always strived for balance in life_
He dared to live life on his own terms; he followed his dreams, and managed to be successful in many areas without compromising his integrity. He was fair and honest. He said what was on his mind no matter what...
He was a citizen of the Universe_
He traveled the world and called Lafayette, Louisiana home...
He loved this community and he made major contributions on a national and local level in music, theater, film, dance, visual arts, education, and business_
He stood side by side with legends and rubbed elbows with celebrities but he never lost his humility_
He was one of the best and he will be missed...
