My first year at camp I had the worst first day. I felt like I was about to cry. Then Andrew came over and smiled and told me that it will get better. From that day on I always saw Andrew playing guitar around camp. The last night of camp last year there was a storm. I was really sad and scared. Andrew sat on our porch and made me smile and feel safe. I am so lucky to have met someone like him and to have been friends with someone so special. Before their trip I said goodbye and hugged him. He smiled and said "I'll see you soon." I miss hearing him rock the camp or just seeing his smile from across the room. He taught me to smile at the memory rather than be upset that its over. Well Sunshine I am smiling and your memory. You will always be in my heart.Forever you will be my sunshine love,
Hannah

I had the honor to know Andrew since last summer. I met him in Omanut (art) at Ramah and from then we bonded on one thing we loved, art. He would tell me what he was working on wasnt that good, i believed him cause i had never seen his art work. when he had finished his painting, i knew he was just being modest about his art work "being bad". He had painted a beautiful painting of a forest and said "i guess i CAN paint." From then on we would give constructive criticism to eachother about the art we were working on. All during the year he would tell me about songs, poems, drawings, and paintings he was working on. Told me he would show them to me at camp. Never did i get to see his beautiful works of art, but his songs were passed to us, and was i speechless. Such beautiful, inspiring words coming from a 16 year old boy. Andrew was so talented in many different ways. If i could pick out one main thing he taught me in my life, its never give up. And because of his words, he's inspired me to not give up on my art work and practice piano more. Rest in Peace Sunshine.
love always, Laura

I've been going to camp with Andrew for 5 years, as well as Hebrew High with him for the past 2 years. He is the most talented person I have ever had the pleasure to meet. He is absolutely incredible, and has touched everyone's hearts, at Ramah, school, as well as everyone else he has ever met, in even the smallest ways. I will never forget that beautiful smile, the helping hand he would always hold out. Andrew was just an overall amazing person. Every day when I see the sun shine, I see his smile. The nick name Sunshine fits, so perfectly. Words cannot explain how much we all miss him. He is and always will be in our thoughts, every day. Rest in peace, Sunshine. Gesher '11 - 72 strong!

Andrew and I went to camp for 3 years together. Not once did he not have a smile on his face. That's why I believe the nickname sunshine fit him so perfectly. Andrew was one of the most kind, generous, smart and musically gifted kids I knew and he will always be on my mind. 72 STRONG FOREVER!

This is for Andrew Silvershein, Marci, Sara, & Joel



Andrew I will miss your youthful insight and wisdom that we shared, your smile, your laughter and delight for life. With a heavy heart I write these words no parent should ever have to endure the loss of a child. Taken too soon, I will always remember your easygoing nature the kindness you exhibited whether a word spoken, expression or your silly, happy, an fun loving nature that always made me laugh. Your departure too soon you go before us to prepare a place in God’s House for the many yet to arrive. May God Bless your family may they remember only the happiness you brought to their lives and may they know that you will all meet again in God’s Heavenly Home.

With all our love and prayer,

Michaela & Fred Pelletier
