Andrew was a great Son, Brother, Nephew, and Friend. He was a 2004 graduate from Kewanee High School where he was involved in Football and Wrestling...Everyone loved to watch him in both sports. Andrew was just an all around out going kid who got taken from all of us to soon! He was welcomed everywhere he went especially at Tim and Vicki Hulslanders house! Yes he spent time with his family and loved them, but he always loved the Hulslanders like a second family. The Hulslanders include Tim, Vicki, and their two sons Andrew and Holden. They were like three brothers that you would never seperate! Andrew had many other close friends that will never forget the times they spent with him. Everyone is his family will cherish the time they had with their son,brother, nephew. He was so young when he left us but he will never ever be forgotten!! <3
"If Tears could Build A Stairway. And memories, A lane. I'd Walk Right Up to Heaven. And Bring you Home Again"

This is something Andrew would say to all of his Loved Ones!
When Tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand.
The angel said my place was ready,
In Heaven far above,
That I would have to leave behind,
All those I dearly loved.
But when I walked through Heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home,
For God looked down smiled at me,
And told me welcome home.
So when Tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart,
For everytime you think of me,
I'm right there in your Heart.
