    I am deeply saddened to have heard of the sudden loss of such an amazing spirited being, Andrea.
    I am at a loss of what to say and know words cannot take away the heartbreak everyone is feeling at this time.
    I was flooded with memories of years past and embracing what a big part Andrea was in my life as we were stepping away from our akward teen years into young adulthood.
    My heart is breaking for you all. I pray that you find comfort in knowing that we have all been blessed in knowing how many lives Andrea has touched and made so much better by being a part of theirs at some point in their lives.
    Andrea, I will see you again one day and we will share heavenly boxes of chocolate covered almonds and the calories won’t count. It will be marvelous girl!❤️

    Andrea was my mentor with BBBS for many years, and even after our services ended with the agency we kept in touch for a long while. She is the most kind-hearted person I know, and the reason that I chose to go to university and take social work. I shared so many memories with her and many family members and friends that I will cherish forever. My most deepest and sincere condolences to all her family, friends, and anyone who was lucky enough to get to know her.

    As I read through previous condolences there is a common theme. She was an angel on earth and we all felt how special she was. I will always remember her kindness, her quick wit, and her gorgeous laugh. No need to learn how to swim now my friend, because now you can fly.
