Dear Michael and Family,
When I recall our shared years at Braeside, I always think fondly of your family. Andrea’s engaging smile and warmth could light up the place. When I had a break for a few minutes, I’d seek her out for a chat and always felt uplifted in her presence. My deepest condolences at this terrible time of loss for you and your kids. Please accept and extend my sincere prayers and support.
With thoughts for healing,

To the Rosengarden Fanily,
I was so sorry to hear about Andrea’s passing. I remember sitting with her and teaching her how to read Hebrew. I learned so much from Andrea. She was kind, brave and a super mom. She gave so much of herself to others. I am honored to have known her.

I was so saddened to hear of Andy's passing. I remember meeting you both for the first time at the MMRF 5k race in Chicago around 7 years ago. You might know me better as one of the "410 for Jill" girls. You welcomed us to the MMRF family with open arms, and encouraged us every step of the way. On behalf of 410 for Jill I just want you to know that we are all so very sorry for your loss. I know your wife had been living with Multiple Myeloma for a long time. Andy's Angels gave us hope that our friend Jill had a chance to beat this disease. We will forever be grateful to you for your words of encouragement, especially at a time when the situation seemed so very hopeless. Thank you, and best wishes to you and your family. Elleke and the rest of the 410 for Jill crew
