Leigh and family,
I was so saddened to hear Andrew has passed away. I remember doing respite work with him when he was little. He loved going for walks down to the Charleston bridge, listening to the water and the birds. He was such a sweet little boy. He certainly grew into a handsome young man. Please accept my sincere condolences.

RIP Andrew . Our thoughts are with Andrews family .
Andrew and I spent a couple years together at Milton School. He brought such joy to my day and he absolutely taught me so much during my time working with him. He knew how to turn heads in a room when he got laughing.
I am deeply sorry for your loss.
Andrew was a beautiful soul who touched so many of us during his short lifetime…His laughter and his smile always overshadowed his pain…He had a love of music and heavy metal seemed to be his choice…He was such a wonderful example of love personified and he was my hero…I loved him lots and will miss and think of him always..My sympathy to his family and friends who also loved and cherished this young man who left us all too soon…God bless his soul….He will always be remembered…
Sending my condolences to the family on your loss .
Dear Leigh,Linda and family so sorry for the loss of the light of your world Andrew The picture you chose is exactly how I remember him.He was a huge part of the South Queens
Junior High family where he and many friends usually hung out for the lunchtime
socials in the learning center. His smile
and laughter always filled the room along with his trusty sidekick Peggy who was just as joyous as he was I had forgotten how much he loved the heavy metal music until
Peggy mentioned it Seeing his picture flooded my heart with how much love and care flowed through the room when he was there just being in the moment with friends
and the SQJH crew .He was a happy soul
and I will never forget being a part of that family Some real amazing memories with
great people Take great comfort in the amazing life he got to enjoy and live because of your great care to him . His spirit always soared and may his memory remain soaring in your hearts.
Hugs to all.Linda Williams
