In Memory of Andrew Phipps
Everyone at MHARF wants to extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Andrew Phipps. Andrew passed away unexpectedly at age 22 on February 12, 2018. Andrew had a lifelong love of horses and worked many hours caring for them at a stable in Afton, Minnesota. Andrew is the beloved son of Chuck and Ann Phipps and brother to Samuel and Graham.
Because of Andrew’s love of animals, his family has generously designated MHARF as recipient of memorial donations. We cannot thank them enough for thinking of us at this tragic time. Our thoughts and prayers are with Andrew’s family and friends.
