You can find the Google cache for the old Andrea forum. I assume someone who loved her is reporting the old one and having it removed.

I just want to know the truth about it. I loved her once. We were great friends a long time ago, and I'd like to bury it with some closure.

I hope someone tells us what exactly happened.

If anyone wants to know how Andrea Wong died, just give me a call. She had a very bad cold for several days with coughing and fever. She was clear headed and just did not feel well at all
She refused to go the the ER that morning, said she just did not feel well and would be better by morning.
She asked for a drink of water and she drank it. She laid back down and I asked her if she needed anything else. She never answered. She was gone.
Just like that. I tried my best to do CPR and we called 911 but they could not do anything either.

Her lab tests came back just fine so all of you people who are gossiping about overdose can cram a sock in it.(Excuse me but this talk made me very upset)

Just remember that we each have an appointment to meet God and none of us know the time or place. We need to be ready to meet Him and Andrea was ready. She spent the last few months of her life reading her Bible and praying for others. She was being prepared to meet Him.

We are still in shock and cannot believe it. I tried my best to do CPR but could not bring her back. She was my heart and soul....

Remember her smile and her laugh and live life well.

Ruth, I first want to tell you how terribly sorry I am for losing your daughter. She touched many lives and was so very smart. I know the "overdose" talk upset me, and I wanted to KNOW so I can grieve as proper as possible as your daughter has some real estate in my heart from a long time ago. It was very difficult for me at the funeral home, as well as now, to see someone I knew, had loved, and who was so young and beautiful. I think that the majority of us are like me, just needing some closure and truly meant not to harm you in your time of grief, but I'm sure some were on here for the sake of gossip. Andrea was known by tons of people- her laugh unforgettable. Beauty, brains and her magnitude in life are rare commodity- You were truly blessed when you had Andrea.

I wish you peace during your grief......

Dear Just and Old Friend....Thank you for your sincere reply. Your kind interest was most sincere and not like some of the gossip going around. I will never get over losing her. She was my heart and soul and love of live. She was the highlight of every day and I have tears in my eyes as I write this. It is so hard to think of it, her plans to help me decorate the house, her laugh and how she got mad at the dumbest things....I an sitting here looking at her make-up and jewelery and only want her back, in spite of all the pain she had been going through. She had a car accident about a year and a half ago and got a torn disk in her back. Her legs started going numb and she fell several times due to the legs giving out. It caused her to break her foot twice. She was getting shots in her back and they were not really helping. The next step was surgery and she had a bad feeling about the surgery. The pain was constant and unbearable and she would cry when she thought no one could hear her. She was tough and full of love and I cannot ever get over it even though I know God knows best. thank you for your kind post....

Dear Mrs. Wong,
I had classes with your beautiful daughter at EKU years ago. I was an older, non-traditional student who already was a mother of 2 children when I graduated in 2000. I only knew Andrea through a few classes, but remember that her beauty was stunning, and all eyes in the class would turn to her when she walked in the room, not only because of her beauty, but because she was always laughing and so full of life. I was so shocked to read of her passing. I pray that you and your family will find comfort in knowing that she touched so many people in so many ways. As a mother myself, my heart breaks for you, I just cannot imagine your pain. I will continue to keep you and your entire family in my prayers.

Wow! I stumbled upon this today, and it really hit me hard! I hadn't seen Andrea in years. We grew up together at Model. I had regularly meant, over the last several years, to get back into contact with her. But I failed to do so. I really regret that, now more than ever. Because, despite what negative things anyone on here has to say, I always thought the world of her. And though we hadn't been in touch in quite a few years, I'd heard nothing at all but great stuff about how, and the woman that she had become!

I know that I am incredibly late in posting to this board (because I just found out about this, today), but if anyone is still monitoring it, I hope that her family has found some kind of peace in knowing the girl that she was and the woman that she became.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
