    Being friend with Andrew for forty some years, it is hard to believe that he has passed away peacefully at this young age. Andrew was a gentleman and a fighter with principles; also a devoted husband, a dedicated father and a good friend. At this difficult time, we would express our sincere condolences to Eliza and Andrea for their loss. Andrew, my friend, you will be missed.

    Dear Eliza and Andrea:
    We’ve never met but I had the honor of meeting Andrew and being his physiotherapist 3 years ago when he was first diagnosed. Throughout his therapy, his demeanor was always so strong yet flowed gently, his dedication to being more present for his family so sincerely determined. He always spoke so highly of both of you and everyone he knew. No matter how much he struggled through some of his exercises I never heard him utter a single discouraging word. I have to tell you that in all my years, I have never had a patient touch my heart so deeply. Andrew’s beautiful soul will be sadly missed. May God bless you and may Jesus walk beside you.
