It has been nearly 5 years now and I still constantly think about Andrew and the lessons he taught me. He taught me drumming which I will forever carry with me but most importantly he taught me how to be positive and how to work hard. He always told me that whenever I wanted to quit, to practice 5 more minutes. And when I wanted to quit again, to practice 5 more minutes. I've carried that mantra with me my entire life since middle school and have Andrew to thank for instilling it in me and inspiring me to be better.

I stumbled back across this guestbook when thinking about Andrew and his lessons tonight and I had to write something so anyone else who finds themselves thinking about the incredible impact Andrew had on them will know they are not alone and he is still missed dearly.

In the last years I knew him I told him I was going to make it to medical school and he kept jokingly asking when I would figure out a cure for him. Well thanks to him I am in school now. A cure will only come from the concerted efforts of humanity: scientists, engineers, doctors, political leaders, etc, but I will continue to strive to be a part of that vast effort.

Thank you Andrew for being an amazing role model and an extraordinary friend.

Today I attended a band competition at NAHS. I mentioned how I loved to hear Andrew play the quads and a friend informed me of Andrew's passing. I was truly stunned and saddened. Andrew was truly a blessing and inspiration to everyone. Memories of him and his music shall live on

Andrew:
You are deeply missed. Truly a talented musician and overall great person. In previous years working with you on the Drum line at NAHS; your raw talent was obvious, yet you always chose to do what was best for the group rather than feed an ego. Thanks for the great memories. You are a true inspiration to everyone you touched.

Erica:
Thank you for your Love and compassion for Andrew.
Words of comfort are so empty when your life has been shattered by the loss of someone you loved so very much. Only time will ease the sorrow from your heart and give you peace. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of great loss.
