Praying for Andrew's family as another anniversary is here . Your loss is one you can never get over .

Praying for Andrew´s parents and his entire family as the anniversary of his death draws near. For God´s supernatural and comfort.

As the date draws near of your son's passing 7 years ago, I just wanted to let you know that he is not forgotten. After reading about him again, he sounds like such an amazing and loved young man with so much to look forward to. I know the pain of losing a child all too well as our daughter passed away at Purdue (Hillenbrand dorm) at age 19 in Sept. 2010. We also have a West Bend, Wisconsin connection as that is where I grew up (my family still lives nearby so I visit often). It's such a...

I will never forget Andrew and all that he had to contribute to the Purdue community. He and his family are in my heart. I carry him with me every semester. He will never be forgotten.

My prayers are with Andrew's parents . My son was in a lab close to where Andrew was . He also was one of Andrew's engineering partner in a class . Every year I say a special prayer for Andrew and his parents . My heart still aches for them .

As members of the Marquette High community both of my sons knew and loved Andrew. He was a gift in the lives of his classmates. As fellow Eagle Scouts they shared so much in common. Andrew was a shining star and a true man for others. We think of Andrew often and send our prayers to the entire Boldt family.

Drew's spirit lives in all our hearts, thoughts, words and actions. Do small random acts of kindness daily. Give someone that Drew smile daily. Thank you, Drew for making our lives brighter.

Our prayers are with you during this time of the year . Andrew touched many lives at Purdue & still is . May God help you during each of your days to heal . Some day you will be reunited with Andrew . I am sure he is watching over you each day .
God Bless your family .

To honor Andrew's memory today, I think the most important thing is to carefully consider what we can learn from the way he lived his life. Hebrews 10:24 encapsulates this precisely: "And let us consider how we may spur one another on to love and good deeds."
