Even though we never even met in person, Andrew was one of my dearest, closest friends. We were really kindred souls and he could always make me laugh. I'll always be sad that I never got to meet him face to face, but I know I'll see him in heaven. I just wish they had Facebook up there, too. I'm going to miss him so, so much, and I was just a friend. I know the pain of your loss unimaginable compared to mine. Bye for now, Andrew. You made our lives a little better.

I have know Andrew since Kindergarten. He and my son Jacob were on the same t-ball team, and attending Pearl together. I also started working at Pearl Lower the year they started Kindergarten. He was such a sweet young man that I watched grow up. So sad to hear of his death, such a talented person. Prayers to your family.

Someone once told me "The will of God will not take you where the gracel of God cannot keep you." There are no words we can say to ease your pain, but just know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine the hurt of the death of a child.

I just finished reading the note that Andrew has on his FaceBook page about Religion and Theology. What an intelligent and talented young man! There is no way to understand why God would call home someone like Andrew. This old world needs more like him. But I know God knows better about such things than we do. I trust that He is unable to make mistakes and that He will use Andrew's life for our good.

I pray the good Lord wraps His arms around you, Bob, and Jason and comforts you as only He can.

We will never forget Andrew in 'The Beauty and The Beast' play at Pearl High with our daughter, Peach. He was an unforgettable presence then and remains so. God love all of you.

I am so saddened to hear of the sudden loss of such an amazing, talented young man. Please know that I will keep all of your family in my thoughts and prayers, and I will always remember Andrew in a very special way. I was honored to have photographed him in several productions at Pearl H.S. and Actor's Playhouse, as well as many performances with the Pearl Singers and PHS Chamber Singers. I'll remember his beautiful voice and commanding stage presence and especially, his incredible performance as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables at Actor's Playhouse. I pray that you continually feel the amazing love, strength, comfort, and grace that only our Lord Jesus Christ can provide at this time and in the days ahead.
