    Wow there is so much to say and so hard to put it into the words i need to be able to express my love for you Dre. Amazing doesnt even begin to describe what i think of you. I love you so much, we have had some pretty crazy times throughout the years. The memories are overwhelming…some good, some bad…but always together through it all. Your abscence from my life is something i have and will feel everyday. Its devastating, sometimes i try to convince myself that you’re just out of town for a few days but you’ll be back soon. You are everywhere I go, at first i was scared i would never get you out of my mind, but now im not scared because i dont want to forget or put it in the past. I am forever grateful that i actually have all these memories of you and I will carry them with me and remember always, everyday. Dre, im sure you have read my letter by now, if you havent then get on it boi, it explains everything.

    To my family:
    You all know how much I love and care for each of you. Do not let our loss bring you down, instead let it make us strong, thats what he would have wanted. But when you have the occassional breakdown you know who to call cause im right there with you always. You are all very close to my heart as was Dre and i know all of you and dre love me too. 🙂 Like I said if you need me call me, or call my name cuz im probably at the house already 🙂 I LOVE YOU ALL SOOO MUCH!!! STAY STRONG!!!

    It had been a long time since I have seen the boys, but I have one memory of them I will never forget. Brooksie lived across the alley from my family. (Delta Avenue) I would babysit the boys on occasion. One day babysitting for Brooksie, I was watching Brice and Aundrea. I could not find them anywhere!! I looked upstairs and downstairs, up the street, and down the street, I just could not find them anywhere! I started to panick thinking how I was going to tell Brooksie that I could not find her kids… I finally went back outside to call for them, and could hear giggling….When I looked up to see where it was coming from…They (Aundrea and Brice) had crawled out of the upstairs window, out onto the roof..I just about had a panick attack! I could not get them off that roof, the more I yelled for them to come back in, the more they laughed.

    The only thing that got them back into the house was the threat that I was going to call there Grandma.

    I laugh and have always told this story when I relate back to all my babysitting days. I think that was the day I retired from babysitting.

    God Bless the family, and I will pray for you. It is a difficult journey and it is a blessing that you have alot of love and support.

    Dre was like one of the kids (my kids) no matter what kind of a d a i was having he could always get me to smile. he’d give me that look or do his stupid kissy flirty look what a nut. If he rode by and i was outside he’d scream ” i love you mom” i didn’t even need to look up i knew it was dre. My mother called him her “cinnamon roll man” when he and Cory would go to my mothers (grandma dahn) she always made cinnamon rolls for dre cuz he liked them.

    Dre, i hope you are in heaven now holding hands with mom and keeping an eye on your family and friends while we continue our journey here on earth. Just dont laugh to hard at us when we do foolish things 🙂 miss ya love ya see you again someday. always in my heart.

    Brice, I’m here for ya baby. love you

    Andre will be missed by a lot of people. He was one of the nicest people I knew. He was also one of the funniest people I know. Whenever he was around he had me laughing. He was a great guy and I’m gonna miss him everyday.

    Aundrea “Dre”, was a great friend to all of us. He was such a great friend to all of us. He would take the shirt off of his own back for just about anyone. I remeber being a child with Joel williams and Dre as neighbors in Downtown Gladstone running around this place playing basketball, and just being crazy kids. I would like to shout out a prayer to his wonderful Grandma Brenda. She was inviting to everyone and is “grandma” to all of us. Aundre will not only be remembered as a great friend, but also as a brother. Id like to give a prayer to all in his family. Colton, Brice, Jeff, Brenda, and we can all be glad that he will be reunited with his mother Brooksie. God bless you Aundrea for all of the memories and fun that we have had. May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. The sun shines warm upon your face. the sun shines warm upon your fields. and until we meet again, may god hold you in the palm of his hand.

    So sorry to hear about Andre. I really enjoyed having him in my class when he was in junior high. He had a beautiful smile. In later years, I often saw him hanging around downtown Gladstone. I hope he knew and loved God so he can spend eternity in peace and happiness. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you mourn your loss. Stay strong.

    I meet this nice boy once and he was very nice and very polite. He helped my husband and I move from your rented house to a brand new home last November. He will be greatly missed. May God be with all family members at this time of great lost.

    I didn't know Aundrea very well, but I knew him thru Shannon Nantelle. From what I knew of Andre, he was an amazing man, and boyfriend. He really helped her to straighten her life up, and I really hope that through this tragedy people realize that they are not invincible. I hope his family is doing okay and knows that no matter what Andre will always be with them, even through the hardest of times when it seems no one is there. Please finde comfort in knowing that he is now all of yours guardian angel. His memory will never be forgotten. He was a truley inspiring man.

    Aundrea will always be in my heart. I well miss him so much.. If anything needed please just ask..
