The Battends are wonderful neighbors. Andy was always so friendly , positive and happy. other friends of ours have children whom Andy taught or coached in soccer & mock trials ... and raved about him. He will certainly be missed.

Me. Battend was one of the most pivotal teachers for me in my entire academic career. He inspired and pushed me to be a better student and is a huge part of the reason that I have the study skills and perseverance to be a student still today in a rigorous program pursuing my dreams. I couldn’t have made it this far without him! Sending love to all his loved ones
