Dear Birdie, I left WV and bear many regrets in life. One big one was not getting to know you and your daughter better. She was a light that was so bright- and you are my example in life of a mother who never looked like she had a bad day- but I am sure you had them. I went to elementary school with Andrea. She was in my kindergarten class with Ginger Kuhn& -Carrie Neal...etc. There is much to be learned from the strength she had and how beautifully undeterred she was in this life and that is how I saw you too- ' I take that to heart and continue to fight for the beautiful moments in this life. ' Thank you for sharing such a gift- Andrea- and teaching us all what love truly should be. ~all my love~ Maggie

I remember when i met Andrea at Milton Elem. My papa Lonnie Johnson was the custodian there and he always caller her his sweet heart, even after he retired he would go to her house just to see her smile, she truly was a sweet heart and will be missed. I know the two of them are up in heaven just smiling at each other now. My heart goes out to you Birdie, you are an amazing mother.

I am so sorry for the loss of such a sweet, beautiful and caring young lady that I had the privilege of watching grow up with Amy. We always considered Andrea as a part of our family and I have so many wonderful memories of her. She always had a kind word for everyone who crossed her path. Words fail me. I cannot express how much she will be missed.

I'm just so shocked right now, she was such a loveable person, hadn't seen her since my grandma ashworth moved in with my aunt and uncle, I will always remember pushing her around in her wheel chair, she loved me doing that, loved her smile, she was so happy all the time, hope that she didn't suffer to much, just wanted to say this, so the family knows this, just found out recently that she was in ohio and that she was so sick, going to miss that smile, so sorry you guys are going through this,love you all so much, love andrea forever.
