(The local news story about his passing.)I am still in shock, we all are, it is so unexpected. Everybody liked Andrew! He was the goofy one in our group, infamous ladies man, gentleman, and scholar. He had a laugh like nothing else and was always smiling and happy to see you. He is a fantastic friend and someone that I always loved coming to parties and my home.
(Always in some kind of comedic trouble!)
Andrew- 20 years old, is an Eagle Scout, he was a junior at West Texas A&M, studying dance and was just finishing up a role in the Canyon TX musical, "Texas". He is an AMAZING dancer! He is a big part of the theater community, we did several shows together since we first met in "Pirates of Penzance" back in the summer of 2010. He is so loved by everyone that knew him. That's why it is triple hard in grieving over the loss of a wonderful friend, actor, and council member.
("Hey Baby, how bout a smoke?"- Andrew.)
There is no possible way to do Andrew's life justice here in a blog post. I have several pictures spanning our friendship I could post, some every day, some top secret, and some "Oh God, please don't show my Mom!" But I am finding it hard to go through pictures and type with out completely breaking down and crying.

Andrew, there are not words for how much you are loved and missed. I detest goodbyes, so I hope to see you again someday. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family and all of our friends.You will always have a place at the Casablanca.
Here's looking at you kid!
