Andre's Children



As many of you know, we tragically lost my son Andre on Friday December 1, 2017. He left behind five beautiful angels ranging from 2-11 years of age with another on the way. They are wonderful resilient kids and are already carrying on Andre's loving legacy. Andre was an amazing father who adored his children more than anything in this world. He was a deeply caring soul, a thoughtful and endlessly generous man who would do anything he absolutely could to help anyone in need. Anyone who crossed paths with Andre, even for a fleeting moment, can tell you his sense of humor was infectious. He loved making people laugh and brought warm and playful energy to anyone lucky enough to be in his presence. 

In addidition to this Go Fund Me page I've created to raise money for Andre's children, I am creating a new Facebook page for Andre. It will be open to the public for anyone to share happy moments, silly stories, or cherished memories they shared with my son. Messages and words of inspiration for the children will also be more than welcome. My goal is to create an enduring wall of wonderful thoughts, impressions, and feelings about Andre for his children. They should always know how loved and admired their father was. I want my grandchildren to laugh when they think of their daddy because Andre brought giggles and joy into their lives every single day.

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart I ask those of you who can to donate whatever you can for the children. They have an unfathomably difficult road ahead and I will be working tirelessly to make sure they are clothed, fed, and happy in the years to come. May you all have a blessed joyous holiday season surrounded by those you love most. Hug them extra tightly and don't forget to smile.

Thank you so much.
