I am free

Free to be what I always wanted to be

Maybe an athlete, maybe a musician, maybe a healer

I am free

Free to walk, run, hop and skip or jump and fly.

I think I'll go for a long run and then fly over the ocean

I am free

Free to go to all the places I might want to go

Maybe the Milky Way today, a different universe tomorrow

I am free

Free to understand all the mysteries

Of space and time and dimension and why

I am free

Free to discover the universe

Its planets, moons and stars, black holes and quasars

I am free

Free to reunite with my loved ones who are already here

And who loved me so unconditionally

I hope they recognize the new me

I am free

Don't be sad for me

Be happy for me

For I am free

To be everything I ever wanted to be

Andrew,
We stand with you as we gather together and listen to the sweet sounds of birds singing and the melody of all our hearts ringing. There is a voice calling near to us and asking, please walk with me, and talk with me and remember all the joys we shared like none other has ever known. I'm here with you day and night and my voice is still speaking of those fond memories of all of you, and all the stories yet to be told.
Today, some may bring their learning, and some may bring their wealth, and some may bring their greatness, and some bring strength and health. But I will bring my strongest gift and this I give to you, the richest gift I've always had, and that's my love for you.

Thank you Andy for your loving kindness that never failed to touch my heart. The eternal encouragement and power you held to show me how to be a better person.

My love goes with you forever,
Aunt Kathy Zimmerman-Burton

Words can not express how deeply sorry I am of Andy’s passing. My heart breaks for you Gary, Michelle and family. Andy brought so much joy to everyone. Every time I got to spend time with him, he brought a smile to my face. He was very sweet and generous. I think about the times Gary and I would take Andy to the movies and he would lean way over his dad though out the movie to share his popcorn with me. Andy, you are so loved and will be so missed, but never forgotten. A piece of you is in my heart forever.

I hope Andy is not resting in peace. I hope he is running and jumping and laughing, finally free from the weight of his body.
Andy could not have been more
loved by his family and friends.
Forever in my heart and mind.

Train arrive, sixteen coaches long
Train I ride, sixteen coaches long
Well, that long black train got my baby and gone

Train train, coming down the track
Train train, coming down the track
Took my baby, ain’t’ never coming back

Only song I played that my nephew liked.
A better place awaits.
