After all, the two Brits say a lot about the location and size of the event: “Andy was celebrated to a room full of many friends and family, our immediate DM family and so many people who know Andy and our lives. about touching it for years.” It was a very special way to remember and say goodbye to Andy, Gahan and Gore continued.

They thanked for “all the love” that Andy, his family and friends had shown over the past few weeks. “It really means a lot to all of us.”
