    We had the pleasure of seeing Andria twice a week in our office. With her big beautiful smile she rapidly became one of our favorite people. The office here will never be the same. Our most heart filled sympathy goes out to her big family and beautiful daughter.

    From the moment Andria walked into my office I knew we would be friends. She was so kind, caring and loving, her Spirit and Smile were infectious. It was a privilege to have been in her company every day of the week for almost a year. We laughed, cried and shared many life stories, I will cherish all of these moments forever and I will miss her dearly.
    She did an Outstanding job during her 10 months here at OCPR, her colleagues and clients have expressed deep sorry at the loss of Andria.
    She left her mark on many hearts. RIP Andria xo

  • Shayne says:

    I’m praying every day that you are in the best of state and atire no matter the circumstances it seems never a days turmoil can compare to the chaos from things you sigh.
    No matter the temper it waits solomly. Nothing can erupt like the sharp wisdoms that whisper now.
    Only tears hold back the lost youth and some years but one night we will be back to stare each ones mind and again we shall melt with only purse lip and sinless glee will be together once more me with you and you with me.
