A message from the family from Jeri Dekle Couch
In respect of the wishes of Dr. Andy Dekle, there will be no public funeral service. We can’t express our gratitude at the outpouring of love from the community. It’s a testament to the man he was. We know you mourn with us. The family encourages you to find a way to honor and memorialize him in your own way. Keep it simple. Just as he was. Listen to a John Denver song. Get outside and enjoy the beauty of South Georgia, gnats and all. But most importantly, do something kind for someone expecting nothing in return. ♥️
