Drew, you are remembered today and every day.
Thank you for your sacrifice. I feel like I've been able to get to know you a bit through Kate's books; she seems to be a fantastic, strong woman who has made the best of a terrible tragedy and I love the fact that twenty years later, she is in a way, living out your dream.
Sounds like you should be very proud of the entire family you created together, and I know that they are all proud of you.
Rest in peace!
