Andrew, I love you! I miss you so much! Please give mom, grandma and grandpa a hug from me! 
Love, your big sis :)



So very sorry this young man is no longer with us. I bet he is doing his art in heaven making it even more beautiful.



We love miss you dear friend wish we could take back time so we could tell you how much you mean to all of us rip god has amazing angel now you will never be forgotten



Rest in peace my man. Gone to soon



God has you now Andrew and we know you are at peace - give your Mom, Gram and Grampa a hug - Rest In Peace hon ♥



Of course I couldn't fathom that you were gone at first but I know you're flying high doing what you do best, the artist you are and all. I have my tattoos you did for life and I thank God for them as well as Abel. Like everybody else is saying you definitely were way too young! However God has endured another great soul I love you Andrew. Fly high baby!!!!!!



I remember that photo very well as I took it myself kind of wish it didn't have a filter on it however you were being super mischievous like, we definitely always had a good time no matter the circumstances.



I haven’t seen my friend Andrew since junior high but wish I could give him a big hug. Some people stay the same even as they age and you would know them anywhere—Andrew looked as handsome as ever, and I can see he still loved art just as he did then. My heart goes out to his sister, Heather, and all who loved him. 



Andrew I love you and will always be thinking of you I pray for you every nigth and day and you will be missed. my mother would like to say a few words: Andrew you were always very respectful to my daughter Hailey and you were a delight to have around. We will miss you so much! Its was so unfair that you were taken so early in life! We will think of you often!



I will always cherish our great memories together. From Florida to Oregon (and everywhere in between) We have done a lot of awesome things and I just wish your time wasn’t cut so short. You didn’t deserve this. Will forever hold you close

Andrew, thank you for being such an amazing friend. Thank you for your wisdom and understanding. You always had my best interest. I can still hear you telling me, "you're speeding!" That was our way of you telling me I needed to slow it down because I was just doing too much. You always found the right things to say in times of need. Always had something corky or funny to say when I needed to laugh. I find comfort that you are in the arms of God and finally at peace. But man do I miss you. You will forever be missed and always loved! Until we meet again my friend... Rest in peace



My deepest condolences, you left way too soon. Heaven gained another Angel, fly high my friend. Angels all around you Heather, many many prayers & hugs.



My heart breaks at this news. A life too short. The distance has been far.  Praying for all of Andrew’s family and friends during critical days and weeks as his too soon passing is mourned.  May you Rest In Peace Andrew.  



Im in shock this can't be real :( I'll always and forever cherish our time spent together our memories will last with me forever I miss you so much my friend thank you for being my friend!



My tattoo will remain unfinished in memory of you! Rest in peace until we meet again!



Few people are gifted with the kind of smile that has the potential to reach and light up the deepest darkest Chambers of the human heart. Pair that with laughter the fuels pure joy and you have your spirit Andrew. Though I haven't known you long I must thank you for many helpful passionate conversations guided with positive energy you often surrounded me with. Not to mention the many interesting/exciting Adventures we shared. I also I'm lucky enough to have a small piece of your art on my back that will perpetually remind me of you. I will wear it proudly in your memory. I will miss the sound of your voice my friend, your very presence in the room but most of all I will miss your beautiful face. And whether you believed or not I'll will always hold warm loving faithful thoughts and wishes for you on my mind and in my heart. So God bless you. May he keep you happy and safe for all eternity. Goodbye Andrew. To his family... I truly am so very sorry for your loss. I hope you realize that like every other person on this earth, Andrew was and will always be a single unique pixel on our creators canvas. Alone he may not seem like much but connected him with the rest of all living things and he becomes part of the most beautiful perfect piece of art imaginable.



I heard about this far far to late... it breaks my heart to hear this!! RIP Cricket



Andrew was a friend of my daughter and came by regularly. He used my massage studio on occasion to do tattoos and gave my daughter and I each matching tattoos on our ankles, the first tattoos we ever got. I'm glad I have something to remember Andrew by. He will be missed by us.



I loved Andrew like a brother and no matter what was going on in my life I'd always drop it to go help out my bro. We had many plans to go to Wisconsin but things just never worked out which I'll always regret and may just have to do with my wife in memory of Andrew. Anyways Rest In Peace My little brother. Forever in our hearts, Dan & Elizabeth Raines



He was a good friend to me he shaded my tattoo this is really devastating to hear you are missed



I still miss you more then ever Andrew. BFFL I imagine your smile often, it helps get me through the day somedays. I know you're flyin high and lookin down on us closest to you. Keep coming in my dreams here and there, I love when you do and they are very comforting I love ya baby daddy! I made your poem into a picture form. It seems to me a much cooler memory and savory of something so special from/by you.



Andrew you definitely will be missed by myself, my boys, and my mom. My mom always thought of you as her son, my boys loved you like an uncle, and you were my brother. I was one of the very few people that came into your life when you first came to Salem, I opened my home to you, took care of you and you took care of me and my boys in so many ways.  I know you are still keeping close watch over us even though your gone. I love you Cricket and will forever be in our hearts and never forgotten.



God Bless you. Wow. We have the same birthday.....you will be missed



So very sorry for your loss! Was a great guy! So kind and humble. I'm sorry I'm just hearing about this now. My prayers go out to the family.



Glad we got to spend our goods years together, all of us. Your art is permanently with a few of us and we are grateful.



Rest In Peace dad! I wish I could have seen you more and talked to you more before the tragedy:( Say hi to grandma McMillan and grandma Rhonda for me please! You won’t be forgotten. Love, your son.
