Mayor Andy

I came across this while meandering this morning:

Mr. Ashmore, 78, died in his sleep Nov. 18. He was a resident of Philadelphia and Key West, Fla., where he was known as the unofficial mayor of the town.

"Everybody in Key West knew him, and he knew everybody, even the homeless people," his grandson said. ?He would always stop to give them money. They would see him drive by, and shout, 'Hi, Andy, how are you doing?' He would help them out if they needed some work or something to eat ? he would do whatever he could for them."

"That's nice", I thought, "but how come I didn't know Andy?"
