    Losing you has been the most unbearable pain i’ve ever had to endure. I miss your goofy laugh and smile. These pictures are never gonna be enough for me but they’re all i have to look back on now. You were such a beautiful human being & if i could love you back to life i would. I love you so much, more than you’ll ever know and i miss you more than i can ever explain. Save a spot for me and our siblings, we’ll see you again one day. Rest in peace baby boy.

    Andrew I keep trying to figure out when we last spoke what did I miss saying to you. I appreciate you giving me that time not knowing that it would be days until you physically left us . I cherish that conversation it was deep and I now know the value of what your motto was “family first “ I will always love you and you will be truly missed by many. I love you my sweet baby love your cousin Angie 🙏🏽

    To our Family there’s a quote I’m reminded of, “When we lose someone we love we must learn not to live without them, but to live with the love they left behind”. So what we all once enjoyed and shared with our Andrew we can never lose. Because all that we deeply love becomes a part of us forever. So to our family, God has Andrew in his arms and we have him in our 💕 💞 forever because of the light he allowed to shine in this life. The ministry he shared on Facebook demonstrated his relationship with our Father in Heaven. It comfort me and give me peace knowing Andrew is with God. Love and praying for us all!

    Miss you my Nephew. I always loved the way you greeted me with a smile, hug and kiss. I know you are safe now in the hands of our Lord. “The only scars in Heaven are on the hands that hold you now.” Love you and will always keep you in my memory.
