Maria and I first want to offer our condolences to the family. We are sorry for your loss. Andrew was not just any regular person. Andrew was an example of joy. He always had such a positive and wonderful and happy attitude towards life. He always looked forward to each new day, that he cherished dearly. Andrew showed all of us that life is what you make of it. He made life the best for him by always staying positive and by being full of love and happiness. He had no hate anywhere in his heart. He always only saw the good in any situation. He was perhaps the most innocent and pure person one could ever meet. He was truly an angel on Earth, who is now in heaven with God, looking down and smiling upon us, asking us to never lose faith and hope, as he never had lost hope or faith. His attitude about life could best be summed up by a song title from the band “ Journey.” The song is “ Don’t Stop Believing.”He showed everyone so many acts of kindness and love while he was here with us. Although I had only known Andrew for a very short time, he showed me how to respect this short life we all have, and to embrace each day and ignore the problems we all face. He faced all of his problems head-on. He never gave up. His love for his parents, and them to him was nothing short of angelic. He will be truly remembered as being an angel amongst men. Bless him for his great positive affect he had on all people. I am sure he is sitting next to God in heaven. Amen!

Jan Carrato left a message on June 16, 2022:
After many years of prayer and care, I am deeply saddened by the loss of one so precious. Andrew bubbled with love for everyone, enthusiasm for new adventures, joy for travel, passion for learning, and devotion to his family. He gave so much back to his family, friends and the community. As a foodie and gourmet cook, I appreciated his hearty appetite at my dinner table, which expressed his thanks, not only in action, but also in words! It gave me immense pleasure to see him enjoying himself! I also remember that Andrew always offered lively conversation and was well-informed! Andrew leaves a gaping hole in our hearts. While I rest in the fact that he is at peace in God's divine presence, I pray that God's abundant grace and mercy will soothe our grief.
