  1. We were Andrew’s neighbors during his youth. He literally grew up in our backyard, with our son. We pray peace for his family. Jesus said, “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.”

  2. Claudia, It has been so many years since I’ve seen you or heard from you. I have lots of good memories of our friendship formed through our boys. I am so sorry for your pain. Andrew was a lot of fun to be around and I hope you know how much I care. Rest in Heaven, Andrew 🙏🏼❤
