Dear David and Family, Please accept my sincere condolences at the passing of your son. To lose one in the prime of life is very hard to take. I hope that you take solace in prayer and meditation knowing that he is now at peace. Your memory of him will be eternal.

When the sad news reached me I was in shock, surely Andrew will survive this. But the news was grim, it was like someone punched me in the gut. Then last week the final news came and I did not want to hear it. God had called him home, of course the farewell so sudden comes unprepared and raw emotions took over for a moment but knowing that Heaven has gotten a new angel and we have lost the kindness, the goodness and the smile that Andrew possesses. My condolences to his parents David and Anne, for us this is too young, too soon and knowing he is suffering no more from treatments may give us strength, maybe even hope.

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places; but if not, I would have told you, because I am going away to prepare a place for you.

A lot can be said about Andrew’s excellent contributions to his work place. However, at the core of it all Andrew was a gem of a person with a good heart and a big smile, and a candy jar at his desk that was always filled with candies that he loved to share with everyone at work. People would be always welcome to get a candy out of this jar to sweeten their day. He knew what everyone’s favourite candy was, and at times he would specifically go and drop people’s favourite candies at their desks.

He taught me that the jar is never empty, and in his case, Andrew’s jar was ALWAYS full and everyone who was able to spend time with him, learned and grew from their experiences.

He leaves behind wonderful memories, and a void that will be impossible to fill. May he rest in eternal peace and I will always cherish the good times and great experiences we shared during our many years of working together.
