"Our earthly loss is always a heavenly gain, Although our hearts hurt and mourn in humanly pain, The fact still remains the same That Heaven Has Gained more Love To sprinkle down from above." - Antonio Talbert
My heart goes out to the Moritz family. I am so sorry for your loss, but so grateful that I had the opportunity to know Andrew. He was a beautiful human being and such a wonderful role model to all who just need to believe and follow their dreams. Love, Linda Scanlon and family.

RIP fellow Husky. Prayers for peace for you and your family.
It was our privilege to know Andrew and call him our friend. We always knew Andrew as someone who embraced life and every challenge along the way. We’ll miss his “have some fun” attitude, inspirational outlook, courageous behavior and rare gift of always bringing a smile to our faces. (Darin & Christine McCandless)
Andrew is with God, the Highest, in His Court. What a loss on earth of a wonderful young man. There is a hole on this earth forever. I am praying for comfort for Andrew's family and friends.
I have prayed for Drew and will continue praying for the Moritz family. I am grateful for having known him and being touched by him. His spirit will continue living though his family, friends and the lives he touched. Love you Drew Momo :) I pray that God will bestow prayers of comfort and peace with your family.
Sad news. Glad he is at peace. I'll always remember him as the young man he was when we graduated high school from Franklin and then later as Huskies. All my prayers and thoughts are with the Moritz family during this time.

I saw Andrew last year at a superbowl party after not seeing him since high school. I knew what he was dealing with and I was so impressed by his attitude and his resilience and the fact that he cared more about asking me what I was up to than talking about his illness. I was inspired. Thinking about the Moritz family during this time. Kristina Rodgers (Anderson)

I am so touched by the love of this family..to read about the love shared between you all has been touching beyond your knowing. I give thanks for the brief time I knew Andrew. Though brief, his impact was far greater than most will ever know. Andrew was such a bright light, far reaching, and still shining. Prayer for comfort and space to grieve and celebrate such an amazing guy. Katie Bickell
Thank you for sharing Andrew's journey through this blog. Your love for one another, your love for God, and Andrew's passion for life shines through. May the God of all comfort be your peace during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you,Laurie and Jim Fryett
Elizabeth and Family,We are sorry to hear of your brother's passing. We have had you all in our thoughts and prayers these past few weeks. I'm so glad that you all got a chance to have Andrew well enough to celebrate the holiday with you and that he had a peaceful passing amongst family. We will keep you all in our prayers. Love,Christine, Cameron, Moira and Peter Thorne
Do not carve on stone or wood,"He was honest" or "He was good."Write in smoke on a passing breezeSeven words… and the words are these,Telling all that a volume could,"He lived, he laughed and… he understood."
I'm so sorry for your loss. I didn't know Andrew, but my son has been battling the same cancer for four and a half years. Life is very hard, but God is always good. I pray that He will give you much comfort and peace during the days and years ahead.Much love,Jenifer
i am sorry to hear we lost a husky today.i didnt know andrew only through storys but i knew he was a warrior!i wish i was half the man he was.it seems like this takes all the good people in this world and has to be stoped!god bless u for what u have done in your short life u have made a differnce in this unfair world!peace my friend
Andrew will be missed by many, and forgotten by none. I was fortunate enough to know him as a teenager and be his teammate. He was one of the most positive people I've ever met. He was also one of the funniest. He knew when to be be serious and lead from the front, but he never left out time to have fun. I haven't spent as much time with him over the last few years as I would have liked, but I will always think of him as a friend and I will miss him very much for the rest of my life. My condolences to the Moritz family. If I can help in any way, please don't hesitate to ask.
I did not know Andrew personally, but I knew who he was. This blog is a wonderful tribute to somone who left far too early.Rest in peace and God's grace to Andrew's family.
Andrew isnt gone really. He will live in all of us that knew him, loved him, hung with him, ran into him. He on of those special people. We've all known someone like that, and this happens. Even so, he changes us all. For the better. God bless him and Gods stength and support to his sisters, Mom, Dad, and family.
I just saw his story on King5 and it brought me to tears and I never even knew him. I am sorry for all of us in losing a great spirited person. we don't have to know a person but know them in humanity. We feel the loss in our hearts as a rift in the world. But, we will all someday be together and hug as brothers and sisters unite. God will fill your sorrow with Love in that place if you allow him.
It hurts when one of our own goes to be with God. Andrew was a warrior! May he rest with the most high and may his family have peace as he rests with the most high. Rest in peace; from one brother to another. Tracey SmithNorth Carolina UW98,00
Andrew you will be truly missed, you are at peace now watching down on all of us.Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet.Let it not be a death but completeness.Let love melt into memory and pain into songs.Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest.Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night.Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence.I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way.Maya
We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your precious son and brother. Andrew's courage and resiliency reflect what an amazing family he is a part of. Our prayers are with each of you. We'll never forget how Andrew was the first to include and welcome us into Emmanuel. A kind, beautiful, and friendly soul.Love,Chris, Stacie, Quinn, Reese, and Makenna Kelly
so very sorry for your loss it is truly an awful cancer we lost our 17 year old nephew josh to this on 3/11/2011 and its heartbreaking peace at last andrew thoughts and prayers to all your family xx
My heart goes out to the entire Moritz family and their friends. I had the pleasure of working with Andrew during his brief time in St. Louis. To me, Andrew was an idol and a person that was truly larger than life. I’ve never met anybody that had as much compassion, intelligence, and confidence as Andrew. I still remember our one-on-one coaching sessions together and he had the ability to make you feel that you could do anything in the world. He’s someone that I’ll never forget and will forever be inspired by. Rest in peace Andrew,Zack
I'm so sorry to hear this Marylin. Though I've been out of touch with your family, it was neat to read how Andrew touched people's lives. You and the girls will be in my prayers.Love,Erik Andvik
We were so saddened to hear about Andrew’s passing. It’s only God who can give the strength and courage to go through this kind of trial. This isn’t the end of the story and we don’t know the end of the story or how many people are being touched by it. The impact of Andrew is touching each of the members of your family and many others—-more than we will ever know. Do we understand? Can we explain this untimely parting? No. But the Lord declares, “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways… My ways are higher …and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-11). Our love and prayers are with you, Marilynn, and with your beautiful daughters.Dick and Dee
