This was such a shock to me. I knew Andrea for years and years and years. She was always vibrant and fun to be around. She was always upbeat. She came from wonderful parents and family. Marti Brown and I were together for many, many years, which made Andrea part of my family. She was always such a joy, whether we were on a trip with her and Butch to the beach at Destin or at Marvin & Karen's place on the lake. The last time I saw her, we sat together at Marti's funeral two years ago. It's so sad that the world has lost Andrea's light. My thoughts and prayers are with her parents, family and friends. She will always be remembered lovingly.

Andrea and I worked together at BellSouth Mobility and Cingular Wireless. We quickly became fast friends outside of work as well. Hanging out after work, crashing on Bob & Georgianna's back porch. Our love of dogs, days of slipping off to the beach, an adult beverage or two and spontaneous adventure found us in more than a few messes! None that I regret. The world lost a funny, sassy, witty, loving, giving lady this week. Andrea, you will be sadly missed,
