Hi Son,
It is 4 years 6 months tonight at 6:20pm that you died.
Such sadness that has not gone by yet.
The priest at grandma France's funeral told me I will hold that pain in my heart all the days of my life. That is true, but I will always hold the joy of you in my heart all the days of my life also. We share a bond of heart beats though yours has stopped mine has not but remembers those nine months and 20 years 4 months and a day plus minutes forever. Love, Mom

Grandma Frances died on October 21, 2015.

So, sad you did not know that side of your family....the Italian's...they would have loved you as I do.

They know you now through stories and pictures.

Love you forever and a day, Mom.

Tim and Lisa are still there. I believe all the kids you knew have moved on. The 2014 scholorship in your memory went to a young man that had worked there but had not worked with you the previous year.

You are not forgotten.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF
ANDREW JOSEPH ANKERMAN
JANUARY 16, 1991- May 17, 2011

To our son, we honor 20 years of memories: your interest, your dreams, what you cared about,the way you lived your life,the young man you became, impossible to forget.

It has been four years today, son, that you died in a horrific car accident on M-72 so close to home. At that moment, on May 17, 2011 at 6:20 P.M. our lives changed forever.

We are so grateful to all the people who continue to touch our lives with kind words, a soft touch, or a look of knowing, and all their support as we continue to grieve the loss of you, our only child.

Andrew, there are so many times that memories of you sneak out of our eyes and roll down our checks.

We miss you forever and a day, son.

Love,
Mom and Dad

your fury pets, Abby and Jake

HAPPY 24TH BIRTHDAY

Son, nothing in our life was more wonderful then watching you find your own way in the world and become the fine young man you were.

There was nothing more rewarding then sharing in your accomplishments, (and there were plenty), watching you follow your dreams and becoming the kind, caring young man you were.

Andrew, there was nothing in our life that has been more important than having been a part of your short life.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SON!!

We love you always, forever and a day,

Mom, Dad and fury pets Abby & Jake

Hi son,
It is 4 years 10 days since the accident.
We went to the 99th Indy 500. It is not the same anymore, but then nothing is.

As always we flew the Indy flag at your grave.

Abby went to Pam's and Donna came over and watched Jake.
Love you forever and a day. Mom

IN LOVING MEMORY OF ANDREW JOSEPH ANKERMAN
JANUARY 16, 1991- May 17, 2011

To our son, we honor 20 years of memories:
Your interest, your dreams, what you cared about,

the way you lived your life,

the young man you became, impossible to forget.

It is three years today, son, that you died in that horrific car accident on M-72 so close to home.
We can never hear your voice, or see you, or stand in the doorway, and watch that
unmistakable tall lanky young man walked Abby down the street, or wave good-bye as you
drove away in the Jeep on your way to school, to work or to play ever again.
You were our only child, your smiles brighten our life, and your tears brought us to your side.
We will always hold you close in our hearts and remember the joys and sorrows of days past,
and on that horrid night May 17, 2011 at 6:20p.m., when you were pronounced dead, how
much our life forever changed.
We love you always, forever and a day son.
Mom, Dad and fury pets
Jake & Abby
