Dennis and Family,
How I will miss our girl...it seems I have known her always but thanks to Trudi's introduction, in the past 10 years, she became part of our bridge group and the first person to say "yes" to joining our new book club. Books and the discussion of them, knit a fabric between the participants and Andrea was such a key part of our unity and self-discovery. A voracious reader and such a bright insightful woman, she always brought the extra mile to our discussions. She was kind...she was a seeker of knowledge and relationships... and I never heard her utter an unkind word about anyone! Her memory will serve as my constant reminder of what I strive to be.
For Dennis the utmost admiration for showing us all what a husband and best friend can be in times of challenge upon challenge. Tom and I are proud to know you.
Love,
Kathy Gatlin

My sincere condolences to Dennis and all of Andrea's family and friends. I had the privilege of working with Andrea on board committees and through her board service with us at The Elizabeth Hospice. She brought a sensitive and generous spirit to us and I so appreciated working with her. Her generous gift of her time and wisdom is missed.
May time allow your hearts to heal and only remember the joy and love she gave so freely.

Respectfully,
Pattie Shader

Andrea was a friend for life and we shared so many wonderful times. I hold you in my heart and find you in the beauty that I see each day. You told me that I would see you in the twinkling of the stars at night. So true, and in the opening of the flower in my yard, and the dance of the butterflies you loved so much. Missing you and filled with gratitude for our friendship.

Andrea was my client for many years. In addition to hair we covered many topics over the years. She was an amazing voice of reason and caring. She had wonderful insight into things and I appreciate all the guidance and friendship she shared with me. She is greatly missed

Andrea was a loving and generous woman. Thanks to her, I ended up working in a variety of capacities for Gray, Carey, Ware, and Freidenrich, including managing the library. I'm now an academic librarian and will always remember her fondly. My heart goes out to her friends and family.

Dear Dennis,

I am so blessed to have met Andrea and you at your Spirituality Group in October of '07 and later in Osher classes. Our relationship became a treasured friendship. I will always think of Andrea as a beautiful Spiritual Guide as well as a loving, personal friend. She will be missed by me and all who knew her. -Helen Lokken

Dear Dennis and family,
It is such a sadness to learn that Andrea's gallant fight has ended. She will always be a reminder to me of what is true grace. I see it again as I look at her lovely picture. I will miss her humor, intelligence, and insight. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am selfishly saddened at having missed the wondrous life of my first cousin Andrea. Reading all of the comments it is easy to see she touched the lives of everyone she knew with beauty, grace and heartfelt kindness. A sincere hug and bow to her family and friends for not having missed the opportunity to know such an amazing individual as Andrea.
April 22, 2014
The first time I met Andrea it was evident what a warm, sensitive and caring person she was. I will always cherish her memory

I feel honored to have known Andrea since age 10 when we sat next to each other in fifth grade. We continued to attend both Jr.high and high School together.
Andrea was the youngest graduate in our class yet one of the brightest. She was a scholar and had both musical and athletic ability. She was a popular cheerleader and a respected leader among her peers.
As an adult, Andrea continued to thrive.
Her love of life and family was always apparent and her beautiful obituary speaks for itself.
I will miss Andrea everyday and am blessed
to have called her friend for the past 60
years. May God bless you, Dennis and family.
April 22, 2014
Warren and I will be forever grateful that through the marriage of our children, we gained a beautiful friendship with Andrea. Family was everything to Andrea and she generously showed her love for her boys, her daughters-in-law, grandchildren and all the extended family that was lucky enough to enter this circle of love. Our memory will always be a filled with her appreciation of nature, music, children and her faith and courage through life's most difficult times. Dennis, we send our love and gratitude for walking this journey with Andrea. You both taught us the meaning of love and devotion. Nancy and Warren
April 22, 2014
Dear Dennis and Family,
We will miss Andrea's friendship, kindness and generosity. I shall always be grateful for the warm welcome you both extended to me, a transplant from CT. We send you our heartfelt sympathy and our love.
April 22, 2014
Andrea, I miss you. The world is a better place because you were in it. Thank you for being such an amazing friend and mentor to me. I love you. Maureen

HONORING ANDREA


Those of us who have had the privilege to share her being have been blessed. Her story from her childhood in New York, to the last years in California was a continuous search for a higher spirituality.

She (with Dennis) was the promoter of our Spirituality Group. We learned from her research, living experiences, and beautiful soul the joy of discovering, the inspiration of new ideas and thoughts. Many times with her and Dennis we had incredible moments of laughter.

We don't know exactly where her being is now, as we didn't know her being before coming into this world, but as she existed before exists now.
We manifest our love and affection to her through prayers and meditation and, in my case, my gratitude for the moments of joy, compassion and understanding lived together.

Dear Dennis and family, We have seen the most difficult journey that Andrea has been on the past two years and are grieving her death. We are now joyful that her final journey led her to a heavenly home and at peace with the Lord. We pray that each of you will find comfort and peace and always feel the enormous love that Andrea had for you. Her passing has left a tremendous void. All our love Janet and Paul
April 21, 2014
I've known Andrea as a very giving board member of The Elizabeth Hospice, but learned a great deal more about how she was loved by Dennis and sons and daughter when I was welcomed into their home during her last week with us. She will be greatly missed.
April 21, 2014
Dennis and family,

Andrea always had a way of making me feel like I was the most special person in the world when I was with her. I will always remember her warm kind heart. I will miss her. However, I know her smile, laugh and love for life will be remembered. These beautiful qualities will live on forever in all of us that incorporate them into our own lives. She has touched so many others for the better and made the world a better place. This is her legacy, this is what we all should remember and embrace. Bear hugs and kisses ~ forever, Heidi

What a beautiful soul Andrea is--one of those rare persons we can instantly relate to! Poised, articulate, loving, seeking, caring, interested in others' lives and willing to share her own. It has been such a great pleasure to know both Andrea and Dennis. We only wish our time with them had been greatly expanded. We are thinking of you, Dennis, and wishing you comfort, love and God's peace as you begin the next phase of your journey.

Dear Dennis,
I remember fondly all the childhood memories that Andrea and I shared as cousins. I feel a huge emptiness in our family now that Andrea has passed on. But, I know that you and your family and all of our extended family will one day enjoy her sweet, loving and kind presence again. Families may be separated by death but this is only temporary. Families are Forever. You will all be together again. Love to all of you. Your Cousin, Judy

As I look at this picture, I am struck by the soft sparkle in her eyes. She was such an angel, so giving and loving and present. Such a wonderful partner to Dennis. Her love for him and her entire family was bigger than life! I KNOW she is still with us and I take great solace in that. A day at a time Dennis! Love, Janice Monypeny

Andrea had such a big heart. After the fires she and Dennis would come and help us catalog all the things we had to replace. All while going through similar problems in their house. We all miss her and her warm nature.

Life holds many blessings…Andrea was one of them. Her smile, warmth, caring, and compassionate attitude will never be forgotten. I sat on a committee with Andrea and as the group gathered we would often share stories of travel, share tips on where to go and what to pack…those are great “traveling pants”. (She would know what I am talking about.) Sharing those memories with us shall never be forgotten.
Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.
With caring thoughts,
Cheryl

I worked with Dennis and met Andrea through him. From the first meeting I recognized in her a gracious and intelligent lady. Their love of each other shone through everything they did and blessed the life of others. After I retired and moved from San Diego county I could only meet them on rare occassions, but I will cherish the memories of those times. I could wish to have known this lady better as we shared a love of reading and music and I suspect many other things. Cling to your memories, Dennis, and God give you peace.
April 21, 2014
Andrea was a beautiful woman inside and out. A truly remarkable person in so many ways. I was blessed to have had her in my life, both personally and professionally. She was a guiding light through good and bad and will be missed. I admired the amazing love between Andrea and Dennis and the beautiful family they built together. May the love in your family give you strength and peace through this difficult time.

Hi Mom, We miss you a lot!! You were an inspiration in so many ways and to so many people. I love you...

I worked with Andrea at the law firm of Lorber, Grady, Farley & Volk. She was the consummate professional and one of the most pleasant, caring, fair and honest individuals I have ever met. I've never forgotten what a lovely lady she was. My heartfelt condolences to all that knew and loved her.
April 20, 2014
It's been very difficult accepting the reality of Andrea's passing. She was such a vibrant, engaging person with so many interests. Her love of, and devotion to Dennis and their children and grandchildren were so apparent. Her friendliness and sincere interest in others made her a welcome addition to any social gathering. The many great dinners at our mutual friend, Judith's, bring back wonderful memories of time shared. There was always lots of laughter, interesting discussions, sharing of experiences and great food to be eaten. We will hold these dear memories close and always smile when we think of Andrea. Please accept our sincere condolences. Barbara & Charlie

To the dear family of our friend, Andrea Klein, please accept my heartfelt sadness for your loss. I did not know Andrea well but was always so glad when she and Dennis attended a small group which meets in the Lake San Marcos area. We call ourselves simply the "spirituality" group. We are from all different religions or none at all but we like to express our love by being together to share good thoughts about life. Andrea was such a great inspiration to us all as she past through the hard times. She gave us her very best and we loved her dearly. Sally Lind
April 20, 2014
Andrea, you were and will always be my beloved. We were blessed with a beautiful life together, a loving family and true friends. You were my life-partner and my best friend. I will miss you forever. But with God's help and time, perhaps my grief will be replaced by the love we shared.
