Our deepest condolences for all of your family in the loss of your beloved Andrea.

At such a difficult time, it is almost impossible to not feel shattered with the grief that overtakes one during the aftermath of such a loss. In such a time of intense grief it’s natural to have periods of overwhelming sadness; as time passes though, it will get easier to remember her with the fondest of memories and smile because she lived such a charmed and blessed life.

My earliest memories of Andrea was her smile; I can’t recall ever not seeing her smiling and surrounded by her friends.

Losing a child is never a choice any parent would or could make, She was a credit to you, her parents and others in her family that helped shape her into the daughter, wife and mother she became.

When time blurs the sharp pangs of your grief, you will open your eyes and see all she has left for you.

I firmly believe you can reflect on the love you shared with her and be happy for your tomorrows because you spent yesterday with her.

Griffith, Ellen, Jessica and Gregory King
