Andrew "Drew" Husband October 7, 1970 – April 5, 2005 Dear Drew, Happy birthday! Today is, and always will be, an incredibly difficult day for me. This was always our day to get together and forget about the rest of the world and focus on our brotherhood. Bellying up to a bar, watching a Kansas basketball game in Vegas or just talking - this was always our day. Although time has been able to heal much of the pain, today is a day that I miss more than any with you. I miss your clear cut advice, your incredibly infectious positive attitude and always being a shoulder for all of my issues. You always made time for me, never once passing up a second to help steer me in the right direction the best way you knew how to. Our last birthday together, I remember we got matching tattoos in downtown Kansas City. We spent the entire day after that at this quaint little hole in the wall bar talking about our futures and out of the blue you told me that I was going to be a great father one day. I couldn't understand where that came from because marriage for me at the time, and especially being a father, were as far away from me as the moon. Yet, as always, you had this certain belief in me that I never saw in myself until you were gone. Today, my son, Elliott Andrew, is 18 months old and the greatest joy of my life. I want you to know how much I still and always will appreciate you, Drew. You were everything to me. It's a struggle everyday, but I know you are with me and you are doing great being an angel for the world. I love and miss you so very much, Drew. Happy birthday, brother. Your biggest fan, Ben "Bros 2 the end"
