As sad as it seems I understand how some people think it's one more addict gone, if you do not know someones and you hear they have died from drugs, alchol ect. It's easy to be harsh. It's the same as if I had a family member get injured or killed by someone under the influence I would be upset.... I would want someone to pay and the drugs in these small towns is literally killing one person at a time... But Andrew made bad choices he was not a bad person, kind hearted and helpful. The sad part is someone who had such a great future let drugs take that away from him, it's happening much to often and the real crime are drug dealers who don't care to pass it around for an easy dollar, I'm not saying he wasn't a big boy and able to make the choice he did... He was grown but like us all his judgement for whatever reason became clouded and like you and I, Andrew was only human.

Everyone must go and it was his time. God never puts us through something we can't handle! I pray for Andrews family and I hope that those who feel angry now realize that how he went does not make it any less painful for his family.

Rather than be angry pray for those who need help and want it but don't know how.. How many ppl have to die before people realize it's not worth it.

He was the last person on earth to purposly hurt anyone and all people want to do is put him down. Each and every person who has said something bad should feel like shit.. U never know when drugs might take ur life. Lifes a gamble and we all play the game some loose and some win.... Andrew hated drugs with a passion. You never know what the reasons were behind all of it. No one never will. When people wreck and deal with pain everyday in there life sometimes its just too much. Like having a baby with no drugs. Remember him for his hard work, respect and loyalty. He was a better man that most men will ever be. RIP Andrew you are in a better place.

Andrew left behind a legacy at a young age that most of us wish our children would follow. He was polite,honest,and hardworking. Maybe he lost track within himself but never toward others. May the way he left be put to rest but the great things he left behind always be treasured. Always Remember you Brill!

I just stumbled apon this post, And I cant believe it. I was good friends with andrew in school. I havent seen him since, and I am in shock. He was always making me laugh, and he was always someone I could talk to without judgement. He was truly one of a kind. My prayers are with his family. I Also got involved in drugs after high school, and I lost my family, my friends, and myself due to the horrible addiction. I have now straightend my life up, and tried to move on from my past. I hope this helps other people with addiction see that you will always loose when it comes to addiction unless you get the help you need. Again I am sorry for the familys loss. God be with you.

I agree "Andrew left behind a legacy at a young age that most of us wish our children would follow. He was polite, honest, and hardworking. Maybe he lost track within himself but never toward others."

Andrew was truly one of a kind, a loyal friend, a hardworker and simply an awesome young man. We will remember the Andrew we knew and loved. May he rest in Peace.
