Oh, I am so sorry Janet and John. I know your loss is heartbreaking. I wish I could say the right thing, but words always escape me at these times. Know that Andrew was known throughout the world because of you two wonderful siblings and we all care so much.

I was so sorry to hear this. You must take a little break from your exhausting fund-raising campaign to help others with Andrew's condition. From the videos I have seen, he was a very entertaining and talented man. He must have been a great brother to have.

Chris said...

Deepest sympathy and condolences to you and your family Janet.

Andrew had a wonderful bunch of folks around him which I'm sure made his condition more bearable and brought much relief and happiness into his life.
