I will never forget meeting Drew in Latin freshman year. He was such a loving person, and was so nice to everyone.. I didn’t know Drew very well, but this absolutely breaks my heart. He will never be forgotten!! Rest In Peace.

Andrew I never got to know you as well as I had hoped. But I knew enough to know that you had grown into a wonderful young man that your mother would have been so proud of. My prayers are with your family. May you rest in peace.

Son, I am thankful for the few dad moments that I got to have with you. I was hoping to have many more. You were witty and bright, with a huge heart. And your laugh just made other people laugh. Someday I hope to hear that laugh again. Love you son!

You were my boyfriends best friend. Because of that, I had the honor of getting to know you and love you with all my heart. You were the guy to talk to if I needed a friend. I’ll never forget how you’ve changed my life and I will never forget all the love in my heart for you. I’m glad you’re happy now ❤️
