I saw Drew a little over a year ago when he Tony, Drew and Diane stopped in Milwaukee to visit while passing through on the way to Chicago. He was excited about some future job possibilities and couldn't share enough about them. He's was the light in the room. We discussed many things during his short visit and dinner with Beth and I. I'm speechless and saddened a young man with so much potential left us way too soon. Our heart felt thoughts and condolences to all the Chiesas. Know we share your pain and are here for you always and forever.

It’s the little things I’ll miss about Andrew. Going over to their house and having a beer and talking football with him, playing xbox, or watching him and Sam find new and exciting ways to mess with each other. Being friends with Andrew was always a great time because he found a way to make you laugh even if he wasn’t trying to. Andrew, I’ll always cherish the good times we had and you will be sorely missed.

Andrew, time passes way too quickly and now I profoundly regret not spending more of it with you. What I do know is you have a beautiful heart and a beautiful soul and the world is darker without you. Please rest in peace little man and know that there are many who will never stop loving you, myself included.

Drew was such a special person. He really knew how to light up a room. My three young sons loved playing with Drew at his dad's house these past few years when he would come over. He also loved playing with them and it almost seemed like four young boys playing together! His light in this life will truly be missed but we can still carry on his wonderful memory with each day by putting a little more intention, playfulness and wonder into the world.

Andrew, you knew how to light up a room!
You visited our home and joined our family gatherings over the years, but my favorite memories of you are when you and Sam were young children (maybe 5-8 yrs old). We had a laundry chute and you were fascinated by it (how did it work, where did it go, why did we have it etc...). You also liked anything with a button you could push (especially our garage door opener!). It was your inquisitive nature and ability to connect with people that drew me to you (and Sam). We met at the Milwaukee lakefront several times with your dad to view the boats and have coffee (again, the questions about everything!).
My heart has been aching since the news of your passing. I want to tell you again that I love you. God can answer all your questions now. I'm sorry I can't be present to honor you, but please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Love you Drew!

Andrew, I’m gonna miss you a lot bud. You were an incredible friend and always had a way of making me laugh or smile. I’ll never forget all the great times me, Austin, Sam, and you had in Flower Mound and here in Louisiana when you and your family came to visit for Mardi Gras. Rest In Peace buddy.

I was really close to Andrew’s brother Sam back in high school. I remember hanging out at their house after school all the time. Andrew always made us laugh and I just remember him and sam chasing each other around the house. I’ll never forget those days. Sending my love to the family and keeping them in my prayer. Rest easy Andy.
