Mike and Martha, I am so sorry to hear about Andrea's passing. I was very blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Andrea for four years as teacher and coach. She was always dedicated to making her teammates better. I remember seeing her first as a sixth grader in the gym shooting baskets while the varsity was practicing. I was obviously impressed. I will never forget the shot she made as an eighth grader beating Draper at the buzzer. Our daughter is one year older than Andrea and played soccer and basketball with Andrea. My thoughts and prayers with you and your family.

Martha, Mike, Christopher (Tonki), Matthew (Alicia), and the Hoag/Downs families -

I have no words that can adequately express my thoughts and feelings upon learning of Andrea's passing away. She was a good friend and neighbor while living next door to me in Syracuse (Eastwood neighborhood). Treasure the many memories created and shared over the years - here in Central NY, Canajoharie, and Cape Cod.

I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time.

I recently met Andrea while working at a local Curior company. she came in daily as it was part of her job at Asurion. Always came in motivated and smiling. On weekends I would have my one year old in the office and Andrea was always so kind. One time she scooped her right up and danced with her. She seemed like a very kind woman and we will miss her. She was our favorite. Rest peacefully Andrea

My condolences to Mr and Mrs. Downs, Chris and Matt. I have very fond memories of Andrea as part of our Dopp family growing up and as my teammate through basketball and soccer. My kids have heard numerous stories of her basketball skills, team playing and of the friendship we had growing up together. Memories of her will forever be of what a gifted athlete she was and how compassionate and loyal she was as my friend. Prayers to you all during this difficult time.
