Andrew, you were such an amazing child, who grew up to be an amazing adult, and now are an amazing force of energy in another realm. I think of you daily, and miss your physical presence in my world - your smiles, hugs, and humour . I will always love you. The wonderful memories of you that I hold in my heart help me to deal with the pain of losing you.

Janice and I were so saddened and shocked today to hear of Andrew's death. It is hard for us to comprehend the depth of sadness that your family must be experiencing. We are grateful to know of your strong faith that not only will allow you to keep living, but give you the knowledge and hope that Andrew is in the mystery of God's keeping. As we continue in the Easter season, know that Jesus' resurrection assures us of life everlasting.

My condolences to the Brose family on this very sudden and sad loss. There is no pain as excruciating as that of losing a child now a young man! Your son reminds me so much of his dad of whom I have many Opeongo memories. Time will take the edge off your pain but never erase your love of your son , brother and grandson. I pray that your love for each other will sustain each of you in this difficult loss. God knows your sorrow !

I went to High School with Andrew and I have fond memories of how he could light up a room instantly, and make others smile and feel comfortable in his presence. I didn't know him well but I knew he was special. I'm sorry that Andrew (or Brose as I knew him), won't be able to share his talent and charisma directly with us but he will continue to inspire so many. Thinking of those nearest and dearest to him and particularly, my former co-op student Josh. I know you two were were very close and my heart aches for you.

After learning of your passing, Andrew, I find myself feeling great sympathy for your loved ones. What keeps me level is that I know that you are in a beautiful place where you can look over your family as they heal, where you can protect them when they are weak and where you can guide them when they need you most. You were an amazing person, Andrew - you inspired us all and you will be greatly missed.

To your family, I would like to express my sincere condolences. Andrew truly was a great man and I am very proud to have called him my friend. Having had the opportunity to share many memories with Andrew, it is safe to say that he inspired me to be a better person, as he did with every person he interacted with. Be proud, know that Andrew helped to change our world. I speak on behalf of many when I say that our thoughts, our prayers, and our love are with you.

James and Kim and family - I am so shocked and saddened to hear about Andrew. I remember well a smart, thoughtful video presentation that he did to our environmental committee several years back, and how impressed I was with him at the time. I can't imagine what you must be going through, but I hope it helps to know how truly loved and admired he was by everyone his life touched. He lived a very full 30 years. Love and hugs, Lauren

Andrew was a kind and endearing soul. I remember fondly the times at Opeongo High School where he was constantly filming and honing his craft. He actually helped film our backyard wrestling that we performed onstage.

Although we lost touch in the past 10 or so years. I always revelled in what he post with regards to your farm, and biking/skiing. He was very talented with media, and his camerawork was exceptional.

I am thankful that he touched my life, and I am deeply sorry for your loss. God has a plan, sometimes we just don't know what it is.

God Bless.
