Some excerpts from Andrew's Legacy.com guest book: 

Dear Chris and Jim, I am so very sad to hear of Andy's passing. The image of his beautiful and ever-present smile will always be in my memory.I know that Andy's smile was the reflection of the love you shared.

Andy was one of my favorite students at Park! He was such a wonderful young man, and I believe he was put on this earth to make people smile (something he did well and often!)! Cherish your memories with him - whenever I think of Andy, the thought of his winks and air kisses always bring a smile to my face!

Jim and Chris, as you know more than anyone, your son was a very special boy with a very special place at Park School. I can say my days at work will never be the same without him, his questions (mostly the ones in which he already knew the answer), his good nature (usually!) and his Oreo filled smiles. We will miss him greatly.

A Memorial Service was held Saturday Sept. 15, at Bethany United Church of Christ in Chicago. Interment was private.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Park School, 828 Main Street, Evanston, IL 60202 or Muscular Dystrophy Assoc., P.O. Box 78960, Phoenix, AZ 85062.
