Andy had a lot of love to give. He struggled with issues concerning mental health and drug issues. He left us way too soon.

I knew Andy to have a tender heart. His family and loved ones meant so much to him many times at his ow demise .He did suffer greatly but I saw him trying to uplift others something not easy to do in this world. I know he tried very hard even with the odds against him. I will always remember I never saw meanest or hatred from him.but his courage and bravery in the face of adversity. is what I saw. In the end God called him home. I’m trying to remember that he is in a better place with no suffering he is surrounded by love. You will always be missed and loved , our sweetheart.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
First Corinthians : 134-7

Whereas I don't have memories of the day this photo was taken, I've looked at this photo sooo many times growing up. I remember, as a little girl, l eagerly looked forward to meeting my cousins again someday. This photo was the evidence of family. Although as adults we didn't know each other very well, through others I knew Andy to be a sweet and kind soul. This doesn't surprise me because this photo seems to reflect Andy's true sweet nature. I am very sad to learn of my cousin's passing and despite our distance in life, the bond of family is timeless, special, and real.

This photo has now somehow become more dear to me. I pray for comfort for immediate family and closest friends. 🙏

My bother,

We met in elementary school back in the 90s and spent a lot of our life together. You and Greg got me into computer games, among other many things. We would all meet up after school and shoot hoops or skateboard together, something that Anthony still talks about to this day. It was a carefree time in our lives when things seemed much better than they are now. This is the Andy I see and have always seen. I will miss playing Heroes 3 with you, or any game at all. I wish I had more time with you, but I don’t. I drove past a hiking spot I took you on in 2016 and I couldn’t stop crying remembering the good time we had. It is incredibly hard to write this because I never saw this coming. I hope you’re in a better place now Andy. You will forever be with me until we meet again my brother.

You have my deepest sympathy. I did not know Andrew, but I was touched by his obituary. May God rest his soul in peace, and may angels always be there to comfort those who loved Andrew.
