Dear John, Our deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. Andrea was a very special person and a loving caring teacher. Andrea was our son John's first love. He fell in love with her on his first day in kindergarten. Andrea always knew how he felt. I will never forget when she told me she was getting married. She was so worried about breaking our son's heart. Now remember he was only 5 at the time. She had told me that she had to think about how to break the news to him. Well, one day we saw you and Andrea at the mall. Our John went running up to her right away to say hello. Then he saw you. She took him aside with you and introduced you to him. She told him that she was going to marry you, but she made sure that he had the same as our John. That little boy that day was sad because his love found someone else, but was happy that his name was John. She was kind, sensitive, and loved teaching. She loved every student that walked into her classroom. John would often go to the school and see Andrea. She always told me how proud she was of him. She will surely be missed. I am sure she touched every little heart in some way or another. Our prayers go out to you at this time. May the Lord give you the strength to get through this. I hope this brought a little chuckle to you and your family. Love, Bette and Bill Harrison

Dear John, John Pat, Heather and Marianne, I was so sad to hear of Andrea's death. I was just thinking of calling her this past weekend to go out to lunch. I didn't know she was so ill. I loved Andrea, she was fun, kind and caring. She was Pat & Alison's Kindergarten teacher. I will miss her...xo Charlene & Iggy Paskoski

I have nothing but fond memories of Aunt Andrea. She made every visit an exciting adventure. Her gentle mannerisms and kind demeanor are so very rare. She lit up every room she walked into with her bright cheery glow. I will truly miss her and forever treasure her memory.
