  1. I’m so sorry to hear of Andy’s passing. It was our privilege to have his as a student at Dallas Theological Seminary as just one of the many outstanding institutions that he attended. We pray for Mrs. Soraida Lamb in this time of loss. I remember meeting her once on a zoom call from the Philippines when Andy and I were having lunch. We appreciated his diligence as a student and send condolences to his family.

    Kay I am so sorry about your loss. I don’t know if you remember me from The Cash-Book Journal newspaper. It has been some time ago but you were a great friend and editor. I found out in talking to Pam Penzel about Andy and his health and that your husband passed away in October 2023. I am so sorry for both losses. Pam is our proofreader and she mentioned an obit to give to Gina and said it was for Andy Lamb and I couldn’t believe it that it was your son. He was a remarkable caring young man and is now with Jesus and his dad. My address is 2983 Co. Rd. 432, Jackson, MO 63755. My prayers are with you and your family.

  3. Saddened to learn of Andy’s passing. I assisted Andy several times in my role here at Dallas Theological Seminary. Andy wanted to serve God and bring more justice to this broken world.- Dr. Paul Pettit

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Andy was a dear friend from high school and my neighbor in Jackson. He had a brilliant mind and was a kind person. I know he is at peace and in the warm embrace of Jesus Christ.
