Here is the release regarding the Husky game tomorrow night and their plans to honor Andrew. Click here to read it. We are really looking forward to this game and are so thankful for everything the UW Men's Basketball team has done to remember Andrew. We hope you can be there tomorrow! Coach Romar will say something about Andrew right after the national anthem, so get to the game on time so you don't miss it!

We hope everyone has had a wonderful and happy Christmas. Ours has certainly been different. We are still so thankful for our wonderful family and friends, and of course for all the memories we have with Andrew. Some of us stood by his grave today, and the sun broke out through the clouds. It was so windy that it nearly knocked us over. It felt good to be there, near him, although desperately longing for him to be with us still.
This Thursday December 29 our family will attend the husky men's basketball game. The Husky's will wear a patch again in honor of Andrew. I believe they may say something as well during the game. If tickets are still available we'd love to see you there! The game is here locally at the Alaska arena and starts at 6pm versus Oregon State.
Merry Christmas to all!

Thank you to each and every person who participated in Andrew's service, as well as the hundreds who attended. We have heard from so many of you that the service deeply impacted you. We hope you continue to honor Andrew with a positive outlook on life and a smile on your face. It was really wonderful to see everyone, especially those who flew in from all around the country!
Who had fun at The Garage Saturday night? I know I did! We had a great turnout and it was a great way to end a day full of honoring and remembering Andrew.
A staff member of the UW Husky Men's Basketball team contacted me last week to let me know they will be honoring Andrew tomorrow night during their game against Marquette at the Jimmy V Classic, held in Madison Square Garden in NYC. The UW players will wear a patch with Andrew's initials. Our family is very honored and touched the team is doing this for Andrew. Watch the game tomorrow night if you can! You can read a brief blog post about it here.
I'm not sure exactly which direction this blog will head. But definitely keep it in your reader, (or check back here for updates if you simply check the blog address the old fashioned way!) as we will certainly keep you informed and updated of anything that we may be doing in Andrew's name. I may continue to post pictures as well. Especially ones that did not make it into the slide show.
Again, thank you for helping us remember Andrew's life in a truly remarkable way.

~ On Saturday you will be able to park in either the North Parking lot on 47th & 15th, the West Parking lot on 15th across from the church or the Parking Garage on 15th.
~ Please be advised that The Garage Billiards is a 21 and over establishment. The manager wanted to make sure everyone knew that, even though they have bowling. So leave your kids and young friends at home!
~ Andrew's obituary will appear in The Seattle Times tomorrow December 2, both online and in the paper. In lieu of flowers, we ask that all donations be made to The Andrew Moritz Memorial Scholarship Fund. You can donate at your local US Bank branch. The monies will be used to help kids in need of athletic or academic assistance.
~ Thank you for all the emails and messages that you have been sending us. I have not been able to respond to everyone yet, so I want you to know that we've read and re-read everything you're said and written about Andrew. Your kind words and stories about Andrew are small nuggets of comfort that we can carry with us during this sorrowful time.
~ We look forward to seeing you on Saturday. It will truly be a celebration we will never forget.
