Andrew Callahan Family Fund

One of our dearest friends and roommate, one of the sweetest humans I’ve ever met was murdered 3 nights ago. It’s all come as such a shock for all of us and we’ve been trying to put the pieces together. He had the most incredible wit, artistic eye, friendly demeanor, and lions heart....he impacted all of our lives so greatly words would only fall short with such an incredible person. The most fierce kind of friend one could ask for. And we all rest a little easier with his killer being off the streets. Even though I've only known him for the past year I came to know him as if he was always present in my life. And that was Andrew's great gift. Befriending people and creating space for love and encouragement. His ability to be hospitable to even the most tortured souls and fill their life with light. As his friends we must carry on the torch that he wielded so tremendously. They say the candle burns twice as bright for half as long. And he did that with the brightest capacity. 

I ask, for friends and extended family, to contribute anything that might ease the burden in the coming months for his family; I've received permission from his sister Amy. The loss of a sibling and child is a travesty I hope no one ever faces, but that is the unpredictability of life at times. So please, support in any way you can.
