    Rose, Ron, and Family,

    Andrew was, and always will be one of my first best friends. Growing up across the street from him, we quickly became friends and were close for a long time. Some of my favorite memories growing up were with him. We spent days learning how to ride bikes in the yard and going on adventures throughout the neighborhood. Although we grew apart as we got older, every time we crossed paths we reminisced on our childhood.

    My entire family is saddened by your loss, and you all are in our thoughts.

    Rosanne, our hearts break for what you are going through. The loss of a child is like no other. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May the God of all comfort surround you with his peace and wrap you in His love like a big, soft blanket and heal your broken heart.

    Your entire family is in my heart and prayers. Andrew was Ben’s friend for as long as I can remember. He would like to learn new recipes and enjoyed cooking while we were together in our home. Andrew was a kind and thoughtful soul. I’m praying you find comfort and love in his memory. Kim Bosley (Ben’s Mom)
