Andrew and I had so many great times together growing up. He never ceased to make me smile and laugh. I'll never forget him. I'm regretful that we didn't spend time together in the past few years. I'm terribly sorry for your loss.

I am profoundly sorry for your loss. You are right it is not fair that our children procede us in death, but to loose the father of such small precious children is extraordinarily unfair. Praise God its not long before Jesus come to unite us all. I pray that all of you will feel the arms of God around you. I love you. Jan Jones

Dear James, Rosa, and Strahan Family:

We are so very sad to hear of Andrew's passing. He was such
a wonderful child and best friend
to our son-Emery. We will never
forget his gentle spirit, loving
smile, and warmth.

We send our love and prayers to ALL of his family; especially to his little twin sons.

Emery sends his condolences also, and commented that Andrew was possibly the best friend he ever had in elementary school.

Love and prayers,

Alfred, Yvette, Emery, and Michelle
