Even though we never even met in person, Andrew was one of my dearest, closest friends. We were really kindred souls and he could always make me laugh. I'll always be sad that I never got to meet him face to face, but I know I'll see him in heaven. I just wish they had Facebook up there, too. I'm going to miss him so, so much, and I was just a friend. I know the pain of your loss unimaginable compared to mine. Bye for now, Andrew. You made our lives a little better.

I have know Andrew since Kindergarten. He and my son Jacob were on the same t-ball team, and attending Pearl together. I also started working at Pearl Lower the year they started Kindergarten. He was such a sweet young man that I watched grow up. So sad to hear of his death, such a talented person. Prayers to your family.

Someone once told me "The will of God will not take you where the gracel of God cannot keep you." There are no words we can say to ease your pain, but just know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine the hurt of the death of a child.

I just finished reading the note that Andrew has on his FaceBook page about Religion and Theology. What an intelligent and talented young man! There is no way to understand why God would call home someone like Andrew. This old world needs more like him. But I know God knows better about such things than we do. I trust that He is unable to make mistakes and that He will use Andrew's life for our good.

I pray the good Lord wraps His arms around you, Bob, and Jason and comforts you as only He can.

I am so saddened to hear of the sudden loss of such an amazing, talented young man. Please know that I will keep all of your family in my thoughts and prayers, and I will always remember Andrew in a very special way. I was honored to have photographed him in several productions at Pearl H.S. and Actor's Playhouse, as well as many performances with the Pearl Singers and PHS Chamber Singers. I'll remember his beautiful voice and commanding stage presence and especially, his incredible performance as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables at Actor's Playhouse. I pray that you continually feel the amazing love, strength, comfort, and grace that only our Lord Jesus Christ can provide at this time and in the days ahead.

I acted alongside Andrew in a few Belhaven plays. He was always professional, even on his bad days and full of never-ending kindness. I've yet to meet a more respectful, loyal gentleman. Or a man with so many terrible puns.

I did not know Andrew but for the time he was with us at St.Stephen's Episcopal Church. When both of us were in the choir, he improved my singing so much. After we left the choir, it was such a treat to sit near him and sing with him in the congregation. He had God's gift for a voice. Thanks be to God. Peace

I am deeply saddened by Andrew's passing. I sang in choir and did numerous plays and musicals with him at Pearl High School. His voice was, and remains, one of the prettiest I have ever heard. I am thinking of you during your time of bereavement and acknowledge my words will be of little help to you in these sorrowful times. I am thinking of you and your family now. God bless you all.

Andrew was in Les Mis with us and in Beauty and the Beast when we did them at Actor's Playhouse. He was a joy to work with and his voice was so good. Hope he is singing in the heavenly choir now.

So sorry to learn of your loss. Andrew was such a talented young man. I remember him growing up at Eastside and as a student at Pearl High School.
