The True Talent of This Writer

I live across the county in Raleigh, N. C., and have known Mr. Andy Purvis almost 30 years. He has always been an origional. He is authentic, and his rare gift for words have always been his little given gift from God. I have spent many a night laughing to the point of tears at his comic genius. He is bigger than life, and has always had a unique outlook on living, and the importance of respecting his past. "just get him talking about his Dad sometime." The respect he shows to those he holds in high esteem is real. He has always looked to his heros for his inspiration, and he writes his truth just as he would speak it. Andy is an orgional, and with his deep southen roots, his stories give you more than just the facts. They also give you a sense of place and a deeper understand of his subject. Andy loves sports, he loves his country, and he is a born entertainer. If you ever need a speaker to attend your meetings, Andy Purvis should be your go to man. Maybe he shoud run for Mayor.... He pours his heart out in his writings, and his truth resonates with every word. Give Andy a call, and get to know him. You will never meet a finer gentlenman, and if you worry that the kids of this world are going astray, bring Andy in for a pep talk, and have him mentor their desires. He is real, and as I have said, "bigger than life in everyway." I am proud to call him friend.
