I'm so blessed to have known you Andrew. I'm also blessed because you raised my grandson to be who he is today. Thanks could never be enough for all you've done for that young man to grow up and be the best at anything he wants to. I will ❤️ sincerely miss you, Dru! But, your son, I'm sure misses you even more. Fly high, Dru until we meet again. You were truly loved ?❣️
