    It is with great sorrow that we hear of Andrew’s passing. Words are never adequate in times of sorrow, yet we want you to know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family.
    No one else can know the sorrow you feel…having lost someone so special. Although it’s devastating to loose those we hold so dear, there’s also comfort in remembering the countless wonderful times where Andrew made all your lives that much better in his own unique way.
    Shawn has wonderful memories of wresting with Andrew and always appreciated his ability to hold a good sharp tongue battle of wits….he certainly had a way with words.
    May he rest in peace knowing he was dearly loved by family and friends.
    We are very sorry for your loss. God speed Andrew
    Love from Shawn and Lorette

  • Suzie Orr says:

    I love you all more than words and wish dearly that I could be there with you. My thoughts have been with you every minute and I am sending each of you all the hugs and kisses in the world. I know that nothing any of us say or do will ever ease this pain for you all but I am hoping that you know we love and support you and think of you always. We too are feeling this pain right along side of you, we have lost one of our own and are deeply saddened. Chrissy…we are sending you all of our love and our heartfelt sympathies. It gives me great comfort to think that Andrew is safe with Nan and Gramps, until we meet again! xoxo

  • Randy and Margaret Orr says:

    We were so sad to hear the news about Andrew and send our love and support to everyone, Chris, Steve, Sharon, Molly, family and friends. Andrew was a goofy, fun loving kid when we saw him years ago, sitting in our backyard, under the fake palm tree. He was listening to music until the wee hours laughing with his Dad Chris, Uncle Steve, and Great Uncle Randy, while Mugs tried to get them to play something quieter like Michael Buble, to much hooting and laughter. There are no words, that’s true, but memories can help ease the pain sometimes when shared with people you love, cherish the good times, and laugh again when you are able.

  • Cam McRae says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time of your loss.

  • Edna Dennis says:

    Honey, Jordan, Logan and Chris,
    Words, however kind can’t mend your heartache with the loss of Andrew but those who care and share your loss wish you comfort and peace of mind.
    May you find strength in the love of family and in the warm embrace of friends, Honey, Jordon, Logan and Chris.
    Andrews song has ended but his melody lingers on….
    Sorry we are unable to be with you this day but Andrews memories will live on forever in our hearts that will be treasured.
    Extending our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to you and all our family.
    Wishing you peace and comfort in the days ahead. Love Aunty Edna Dennis and children, Vanessa, Justin, Nathan, Travis, Billy, Chelsa and Grandchildren.

  • Kevin says:

    Chris and family,
    I can’t imagine what you and your family must be feeling right now, but I want you to know that I send my deepest and sincere condolences to you and your family on the immeasurable loss you suffered. Know that you are in my prayers and thoughts.

  • Trudy Spiller says:

    Honey raised Andrew and Jordyn in Victoria. Mary Lou, Honey and I adopted many others kids that all got very close. My late son, Vince Erickson spent days with Honey and Mary Lou. We were all like one big happy family, 3 single mothers doing the best we could. I lost my son, Vince in January and I certainly know your pain all too well Honey. My grief is too fresh and I just can’t be there today but please know I’m there with you, Jordy and Momma Lou in spirit. I will come see you in the near future. To live in ones heart is not to die so hold on to Andrew in your heart Honey and try to reflect on the times he made you laugh, I love you.

  • Matt & Ryz Charters and little Billy too. says:

    Hearing about your loss of Andrew has deeply saddened us, but we know that this is far from what you are going through right now. You are in our thoughts constantly, and our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Honey, Jordan, Chris and everyone who was blessed to have been a part of Andrews short life. He will always be remembered. May he now find peace in the other world.

  • Darlinda says:

    I remember Andrew as that chubby cheeked little baby boy, then a charismatic young man and although I had not seen him in about 18 years, I just keep seeing his face and hearing his voice. How he loved his mama Honey. My heart is aching my friend, for you and all of those as well and am so so sorry. Love you and am here via Live stream and in my heart. <3 RIP sweet boy.

  • joe macdonald says:

    So sad to hear of Andrew’s death. Our hearts grieve along with friends and family. There is comfort and hope in what Revelation 21:4 says “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Also John 5:28 “Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth;” What a happy time that will be when death will be replaced with resurrections and Andrew will live again. Although these thoughts do not take away the grief at present; may Gods Word be a source of comfort for you and your family.

  • Andrea Zimperi says:

    Dear Chris: Frank and I were visiting with a friend we hadn’t seen in a while today and were shocked and saddened to hear about the loss of your beloved son almost a year ago. Please accept our deepest condolences and that we will keep you in our prayers. Sincerely, Frank and Andrea Zimperi
