When I think of Andrea Irby, I think of her beautiful smile , her dedication to the Lord and her dedication to her family. Seeing Andrea and John and Danielle would bring a smile to my face. “Well done, good and faithful servant!” ( Matthew 25:23) are descriptive words of Andrea, who has entered into the joy of her beloved Lord and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
John and Danielle, I am praying for your comfort ,

Our heart is breaking for this wonderful family.

We met the Irby's back in 2014 when we signed up for Musik Troup (piano lessons). We have never been more warmly received by a group of people! The other kids had known each other for years, and yet they invited our family into their circle with open arms and genuine friendship.

We had a small glimpse into the lives of the Irby family. But it was profound. This family was solid. Loving, kind, gracious, fun, real, helpful, caring, etc. A family dedicated to the Lord and to each other. We are better people because we had the privilege of knowing them.

Rest in peace, sweet Andrea. Until we meet again . . .

Andrea was a little older than my Down syndrome daughter and at one time we were in church together with her and John. Such a sweet loving girl who talked to my girl. But most of all she knew the Lord and showed His kindness. Love and prayers for John, Danielle and family. The Boehm Family
