If love could have saved you, you would have lived FOREVER... YOU ARE ALWAYS IN THOUGHTS. I miss you dearly....

I am missing you so much. Not a single day has passed since you left us that I have not thought about that day. Those memories will be burned in my minde forever. I don't think I will ever get past my grief. Some days are better than others, but my heart still feels so heavy.

Its been a struggle for me lately, my brother. I miss you badly and find myself thinking of what could have been. I know with out a doubt you are with us all the time. Continue to watch over all of us here at the PD as we carry your legacy. I love you, bro.

Sadly, I did not get to meet you but I do know how proud you would be of your family and the legacy that they have created for you. Wonderful people who turned overwhelming grief and sadness into a foundation to carry on your life's work of helping others. Rarely have I met such brave and giving people as your parents and I count myself lucky to know your story and have the opportunity to participate in your foundation's events. You are so loved and remembered, rest in peace.

I am having such a hard time lately. I have been consumed by your loss. I am missing you so much and wish I could here your voice again. If only we could turn back time! I find myself trying to remember what your voice sounds like and your laugh. My memories will never fade!

They say time heals all, but I miss you today as I did when we lost you three years ago. Not a single day passes that I don't think of you and miss you so much. I dream about you often and that gives me peace. I know you are still with me and will continue to watch over me as you did when you were here. I love you!

It's been a long week, I just got back from Austin, training class. I took time out to go to the Memorial Wall, it was beautiful. I found every ones name. Then yours. I sat and brushed the cold marbled and the warmth of your smile filled my heart. Then the tears. It's beautiful there, the day almost done, no one around, stillness. I miss you, watch over me. Strength. me

Three years today and it has not got any easier. I miss you everyday brother but I know your watching over all of us who serve. The other day I found the sheet of paper that you and the rest of the shift signed as a joke for me "F-Bombs Baby". It made me smile cause I can still hear your voice saying that to me when I would get mad. Miss you man.

Another year has passed and you are still admired and respectfully remembered in the hearts and minds of so many. My thoughts and prayers are with your loved ones and friends on this anniversary of your EOW. You will never be forgotten.

I miss you so much Andy. Not a day passes that you are not in my thoughts.

I miss you. Friday was bad, it is funny how simple things can bring the flood of memories back. He made me cry Friday night, I haven't cried at work since right after you were gone, and he brought me to tears. Then, now, again. It snowed Saturday, it was so peaceful and quite. Soft and still. You would have thought it crazy for spring, you know you would. Me.
