Tweets and Facebook Tributes to Andy

Here are some tweets and Facebooks posts from the Spartacus team, plus Lucy's message from her site (I never lift entire messages off Lucy's site, but in this case I don't think she'll mind), about Andy readers. Sorry, they may not be in chronological order, however the dates are on them:

Obviously, Andy Whitfield left an indelible mark on all of us in the Spartacus family. He was a gentle man who never said a bad word about anyone, a gifted photographer, engineer (no really!) and a brilliant actor. Andy's incandescent film presence made men want to be him and women want to marry him.
Andy's two babies will always know that their Daddy cherished them and their mother, Vashti, above all things.
How lucky we were to have him grace all our lives.
Godspeed, Andy!
