I am still asked daily how to help the Parnell family as they mourn the loss of their sweet Andrew. With their blessing, I created this to reduce the weight of medical bills, grief support costs, loss of wages, household maintenance, and any other miscellaneous expenses. In addition, we plan to create a memorial garden to honor and remember Andrew.
Your donation will go a long way in helping reduce the stress of everyday life as they go through this heartbreaking time. So many have already generously helped and contributed in many ways, and the Parnells are beyond thankful.
Please keep Andrew’s family and friends in your prayers as they begin the long journey of processing their grief and missing their beautiful boy with big blue eyes and a cheeky smile.
Any amount you can give is appreciated. If you prefer to donate via Venmo, cash, or check, please click the Contact button below to coordinate with me. 100% of donations will go to the Parnells. Thank you so for your support and prayers!
Andrew Charles Parnell, 11, was called home on August 18, 2022 to be with the Lord. The youngest of four children, Andrew was born to Eric and Shiree Parnell on May 11, 2011, and is survived by his parents; and his older siblings, Austin, Angelina, and Aaron. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Page Lenard Gregory.
The baby of the family, Andrew was known to all of his friends and family as a sweet, energetic, and funny young man. He was a member of the Gates baseball team where he played pitcher and third baseman, as well as, a member of the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team. Andrew had a deep love for learning and was an excellent student at both Ironbridge Community Christian School and O.B. Gates Elementary School.
He had many, many interests including riding his bike to his friends' houses, playing video games like Minecraft, reading books, building Legos, Star Wars, kayaking, hanging out with his cousins, Brady and Eli, playing board games with his family and taking care of animals, especially the Parnell family dog, Autumn.
Always ready for an adventure, Andrew enjoyed going to the beach and traveling to different places with his family, including their trips to Puerto Rico and Ireland, and visiting his great-grandmother, aunts, uncles, and many cousins across the pond in England. He was also an adventurous eater who loved sushi, spicy food, and all the guacamole he could gobble up.
Forever a superhero, Andrew helped save many children's lives through the gift of organ donation. His love of athleticism, his adventurous spirit, and his willingness to help others would have made him a true Jedi Knight.
