Andrew,
It's been a pleasure having you as a friend over the years. You have taught me what it means to be truly selfless in caring for friends and family. You have shown me the possibilities of what true friendship can be. I doubt I'll ever find another of the same caliber. I will always cherish the memories from the times we shared, the times when I was lucky enough to call you friend. I will miss you dearly, until we meet again.

-Dave

My deepest condolences to the family as you go through this very sad time.
Andrew was a family man, loving father, loyal friend and supportive co-worker.
Never too busy to take time to smile, ask how you were doing and genuinely mean it.
He has left a hole in the hearts of those around him that can never be filled.

"Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never the same."

Andrew was one of those people.
He was my friend and I am going to miss him.
Our loss is Heaven's gain.

Andrew and I spent a good part of our Junior high years hanging out in his parent's basement, riding our bikes all over Royal Oak and the surrounding cities, attending CSB meetings and events, and being goofy kids.
