    I’m a lifelong friend of you mother and your aunts. I can’t tell you how sad if makes my wife Margaret and I to have lost you. We feel terribly sorry for your entire family. Words are so inadequate at a time such as this. Our minds are not God’s mind. However, we can rest on the promise that He doesn’t make mistakes. May His presence be with you through your grief and sorrow. Don & Margaret Pittman, Jackson, MS

    There are no words that can mend your broken hearts, I want you to know your entire family is in my prayers. I ask God to give you His comfort and peace today and that one day the Joy will return as you remember the Great times you shared with Andrea. How blessed I was to know her, heaven gained a woman full of laughter and smiles and she will be missed by the many people she touched in this lifetime.
