Tell us about your loved one.

Loved playing basketball and football. Was friends with everyone. Very funny and down to earth.

Tell us about Andrew's struggle with addiction

Stopped playing basketball when he started with opiates in high school. Was in his room all the time. Went to rehabs but insurance didn't let him do the whole 21 days. Never had the help he needed and wanted.

What made Andrew smile?

The Eagles. His family. Loved it when I fell down when we went skiing.

What do you miss most about Andrew?

His laugh and playing around with me.
