Yes Jack, the guy is incredible. I wish I would have highlighted his mother and sister more in the article. They were continuously present. It sounds like these 2 women were the best models and mentors someone could have. I'm sorry I didn't do that more. I hope that more men and women are inspired by Andrey and his family to pour into the next generation on this island.
