Andrew was very active and full of life. He loved to live each day to the fullest. One of his most intriguing qualities was his infectious smiles. Through his bravery and kind heart, he was able to touch and inspire many lives, both young and old. Andrew was able to live out his dream of playing Little League baseball through the Challenger League. He was also an active member of the Just For Fun Bowling League. Just like all ten year old boys, Andrew loved Batman and the Batmobile. Like all little boys, he loved to be outside playing ball, taking walks, fishing or camping with family. He was very thankful for his many friends who read books to him and sent cards of well wishes. Andrew will always be remembered for his strong desire to live every day with a smile on his face.
