I did not know your daughter Andrea, but know first hand how if feels to lose a child, I lost my son suddenly at the age of 29. I pray your family finds the strength to continue on and know she truly is in a better place, and Andrea is with my son and all the other young angels taken from us too early. God Bless your family and keep you all in his heart and let your friends and family be your support, you will all need that.
