Four years ago already. It feels both too soon and like a hundred years have passed. The hardest thing is loving your spirit, while letting go of the good I thought you were meant to do in this world. The easiest is remembering our good times: times we laughed, came home to each other, and rested easy with each other, playing in the water, fighting till we laughed, enjoying the process of a hard cooked meal or a clean house with music blasting.
I remember taking a bite of your burger, then pretending it came that way and watching the look on your face. I wish I had a picture, your face was priceless! I miss laughing with you so hard we both hit the ground rolling. I miss spending time watching you and Alycia lean into each other with love and road trips so we could all be together. I know we’re all grieving in our own way. I hope at the very least, we all find peace in your memory.

Merry Christmas Andrew. Thinking of you today and remembering when we all shared in the joy of this very special day.

Thinking of you today, Andrew. These past three years since you died have gone by so quickly. I have trouble sometimes remembering things from day to day, but for some reason things to do with you are never far from my mind. So today on what would’ve been your 33rd birthday I hope that wherever you are that you remember your time on this earth and all the people who loved you, because we will always miss and remember you. Happy Birthday, Andrew.

Posted by Nancy Satterfield on June 16, 2019
Happy Fathers Day, Andrew. You are so missed. I wanted to say something about how you became a dad at such a young age and how you shouldered such a big responsibility when you could have just decided not to. Many times I’ve thought how surprised you must have been when you found out and what changes in your life happened because of becoming a dad to Alycia. I never once heard you complain about having to work to pay child support or voice regrets. Your love for her was evident and today you would be so proud of the smart, beautiful young woman she has become.

YOUR DAUGHTER ALSO IS IN GREAT PAIN BUT AS TIME PROGRESSES SHE WILL COME TO TERMS WITH YOUR ACTIONS THAT LEAD TO THIS.... BE SAFE AND COME VISIT ME ONCE IN A WHILE OK MY SON....I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN M Y HEART.... YOUR DAD ALWAYS......

Hard to believe but it’s approaching three years since you died. I woke up this morning and for one second I forgot that you were gone. One second. And in that one second everything was OK. As your death date approaches the heaviness in my heart grows And memories come flooding back into my head. I often wonder if there was anything that we could have done to change your fate.  I have had to watch Marissa learn how to live without you and IT IS HARD.. My prayer is that one day when her heart heals from your loss that she finds someone who loves her as much as you once did.
Posted by Alycia De Los Santos on March 12, 2019
I guess the hardest part about your passing had to be accepting it and going through the many phases of grief and still after years of missing you, I have gotten a sense of closure as I see you in my dreams. It brightens up my day knowing that I got to see your face in my dreams and the fact that it felt so real and in the moment nothing else mattered but our conversation in my dreams. I love you dad and I know you’re still with us <3

SOME SAY AS THE DAYS GO BYE THE PAIN SUBSIDES BUT THAT IS NOT SO MY PAIN GROWS WORSE DAY BY DAY. I AM STILL ANGRY AND SURE I WILL ALWAYS FEEL THIS WAY NOT BECAUSE OF YOU BUT I WISH I COULD HAVE DINE MORE TO FATHER YOU ALONG AS YOU VENTURED IN LIFE FORGIVE ME FOR THAT ANDREW. I LOVE YOU MY SON AND I THINK OF YOU EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY.
ALWAYS AND FOREVER,
 YOUR FATHER.

Today I woke with tears on my face not realizing why. Funny how your subconscious mind can react to the sadness you are feeling. I really dread these milestones. Intellectually I know time marches on, but 2 years have passed since you died. It seems just like yesterday to me. I vividly recall the day we found out. Grief is a tricky thing. I’ve learned that people say things out of love and concern, but they never really help. This grief journey I’m on has not only opened my eyes to the sadness all around me and to the people who mask their sadness, but also to the joy of each new day and the people who bring color back into my world. So today Andrew on the second anniversary of your death, I Remember You...with love, always.

It’s Christmas time and there is snow on the ground. As the hustle and bustle of the season goes on all around me, my thoughts are filled with Christmas’s past. It’s easy to say I miss you, because it’s a truth I’ve lived since you died. It’s harder to let go and let myself enjoy the season and to feel the joy all around me. Today as I try to convince myself to put out Christmas decorations and feel some of that joy, I am thinking of the joy you brought to everyone during your life. Merry Christmas, Andrew.
Posted by Nancy Satterfield on October 17, 2017
I woke today thinking of you. It really sucks that I can’t just pick up the phone and talk to you. I think that when I wake up with you on my mind you must have been visiting me in my dreams. I didn’t have anything in particular that I wanted to share; just that I miss those bear hugs you used to give me. What I wouldn’t give to feel your arms around me again. They made me feel loved and annoyed at the same time.

Thinking of you today on what would have been your 31st birthday. Miss you. Love you. Doesn't a day go by that I Don't remember you in some way. I pray you are at peace. Happy Birthday, dear Andrew.

Six years ago today you married our daughter Marissa. It was a chaotic day for me, but the wedding couldn't have been more beautiful. I remember thinking how lucky she was to be marrying her soul mate. Things didn't exactly turn out how we all thought they would...but I will always remember this day. The music that was played, the flowers everywhere, the wonderful food, and especially the joy on your faces...I miss you.

Dear Andrew,

I need to write this note today. I want to let you know how much you meant to me and how much you are truly missed. It's been one year since you died. Thoughts of how you died still haunt me. There are so many questions still unanswered. My prayer has been that you did not know you were dying and that your death was peaceful. Marissa is finally moving forward with her life. It has been difficult to watch her navigate life without you, but I know you would be proud of her progress. She bought a house near Lehigh University and has moved into it. I know this was you guys future plan and to see her carry it out without you is a little heart breaking, but it also makes me proud in that she is able to do this. We bought a new battery for your car and actually got it started and out of the garage. It looks exactly as you left it. When I look at it I remember things, things that make me smile. things that I miss. I think my favorite story about it is when you were driving it along HWY 190 and it caught on fire. I remember how you loved to cook. I remember what a hard worker you were. I remember your goofy smile and how clumsy you were. I remember your senior year prank with the church bus. That was epic. You were a good son, a good father, a good man. I can say I was blessed that you considered me your second mom.

Love you always,
Your second mom.

Easter 2017. Today we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ and spend the day with family. And I realized that Almost an entire year has passed since you and Christian left.
Still we did the same as we do each Easter. Church. Dinner. Kids Easter egg hunt. All the same, yet different. Love and miss you, Andrew.

Dear Andrew,
  I just heard the news from Jake Mchugh a couple of days ago. I brought up one of our stories from high school and he mentioned seeing a post that you had cashed in your chips. I am not on Facebook so i don't get a lot of the information that gets shared through Facebook. I am not going to apologize for not having a Facebook, because of you I will get one! What i will apologize for is not making it to your funeral. I'm sorry. I missed the opportunity to pay my respects as one brother should to another. When Jake told me you passed I was in disbelief. Then I was mad and I toasted to you.Then I got sad and thought of the times we shared together. Here I am now searching for answers for understanding of the unattainable.
   Those who know you, miss you. Those who don't, missed out. Those who love you are missing something close. Your time you have spent with your family and I can never be replaced. From kicking it with Adam T, George T, Nino T, Jarrod H, James C.(even though you fought him). Cruising around in your Monte Carlo with the music blasting. Shooting the shit, drinking beer, talking about woman, and always laughing about life. Good times brother.
     I cannot start to fathom the amount of strain and heartache your family has gone through so far. You have my deepest condolences for the perpetual sorrow that has been caused by your physical disappearance. You will be missed my friend.
    Marrissa, I am so sorry for your loss. I know y'all meant the world to each other. I always use to think of y'all as the jealous couple. Not only was I jealous of your everlasting relationship, but so was everyone else. To just be with someone through the thick and thin, with so much love and joy that protruded when you two were together. It is what every person truly wants. You and Alycia are very blessed to have such a great person in your life. For immediate family, if he was just as great as a friend as a son, brother, grandson, uncle...etc..then I know y'all are pained. There are not enough words that I could share to fix the hurt.
   I know your days are brighter now Andrew. Tell my father SGM Gregory Burris 11/30/2015 and grandmother Anna Burris 03/08/2017, I said "hello" and I will catch up with y'all down the road. For now shine down on your family.
 
  John 8:12    (12) When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
  Your Brother and your friend,
    Mark Burris

Remembering your smile; love you and miss you.

Still, not a day goes by without me remembering something about you. I've read lots of articles and things about grief and have drawn my own conclusions that it is never ending, that life does go on, but something always feels off. The Christmas holidays are finally over and this year I am glad about that. Our tree was bare because no one wanted to decorate it. That kind of sums up our lives since you died. Bare.
Posted by Nancy Satterfield on November 24, 2016
It's Thanksgiving. Usually a time for reflection and giving thanks, for spending time with family and eating good food. But what's on my mind is that it's our first one without you. My mind is flooded with memories of Thanksgivings past. This season I am thankful for my mind that still remembers you, my voice that still speaks of you, my spirit that still hears you, and my heart that still loves you. Happy Thanksgiving, Andrew. I miss you.

6 months. 180 days. 4,320 hours. 259,200 minutes. No matter how it's measured, time marches on and you are still gone. I miss you today just as much as yesterday.
Posted by Marissa Satterfield on September 16, 2016
Happy birthday, bear. I think of you every day. I miss you so much it hurts. But tonight I will celebrate your life. Dark and stormies. Ribeye steak. Friends. Just like we use to. Regardless of anything we ever went through, I love you and I know you are with me. Cheers.

Posted by Nancy Satterfield on September 16, 2016
Happy Birthday, Andrew! Today you would have been 30 years old. I'm trying to remember good things to make it through today without being so sad. Learning to live without you has been a hard thing. I know your life was taking you in a different direction, but your death was not something I ever imagined having to think about. So today, only happy memories will fill my heart. Love you.
Posted by Nancy Satterfield on August 19, 2016
Today I woke up thinking of you. I wonder if you were visiting me in my dreams and I just don't remember. Last year in August was the last time I saw you in person. I remember how you got Allen and I to try Thai food and how big a deal it was. We let you pick out things for us to try. We aren't exactly the most adventuresome when it comes to different cuisine, but you opened our eyes and hearts to the experience.
Posted by Nancy Satterfield on July 3, 2016
It has been 8 weeks since you left us. Time has passed yet my heart is still broken over your death. Watching Marissa grieve for you has been the hardest part of all. Each day I watch the sadness consume a little more of her soul. There are moments where I wish I had the power to bring you back so we could have one more conversation, one more hug, one more chance to tell you how much you are missed and loved.
Posted by Madd Maxx on June 9, 2016
Andrew,

 I never met you but I know your father extremely well and if you are anything like him watch out afterlife cause son you just don't know how much your dad loved you and how proud he was of you. Out on mission he would brag about you and your sisters and I would think to myself what luck group of kids to have a father who adores them so much and now your are gone. It has left a hole in his heart and for him that has never happened that I know of. All the stories you may have heard about your dad are true and he is probably the craziest, bravest and fearless man I have ever had the privilege of hunting down the enemy with. You rest easy Andrew and always remember that you are loved and remembered on so many levels.... RIP Andrew.... MAXX.....

Little Brother,
As I read the tributes spread through out I can't help but feel a little closer to you. I get to see how many lives you have touched, the beautiful family you have created and the adventures you have had with your friends. My biggest regret was not coming into each other's lives sooner. My heart aches. You and Breann have been in my heart since I can remember and you will continue to always have a place. I will never forget our first words and the things you said that I needed to hear will forever be taken to heart.
 I know you will make sure Alycia and the rest of your family knows your presence whenever you make possible. I hope they know how much you love them all and how proud you are of your baby girl and beautiful sister. I am so saddened we will never meet face to face but I know you will always be with me in spirit. ❤️
Rest in Peace Andrew. I love you.
~Amanda

My Grandson my heart is broken, to be so young and called to live with the lord. I will miss your smile, and your wit. I have a fond memory of teaching you and your sister how to fish. Even though your sister out fished you. When you see Linda and My mother and Wilma please tell them that I love and miss them. Have grandaddy show you how to cut grass. and build things.

Hello Gabe,



I want you to know you’re in my thoughts and prayers almost daily. I know there is nothing that anyone can say or do to make the pain in your heart lessen but I want you to know how much people enjoyed being around Andrew. When his name comes up in conversations it is always with fondness and a smile.



I smile to myself when I think back during the time he had long hair and I kept telling him to cut it…..he would just smile, comb his fingers through it and say….no way….it’s the style….lol I would just laugh and say, yeah, yeah…. How surprised I was when he finally did cut it and he came to my office to show me. I made sure to let him know how handsome he was….he said he needed to show a more professional look as he was wanting to move up in his career. We talked about him going back to school, his family, etc…



I hope by me sharing my memories that it does not cause you pain but rather makes your heart warm knowing that he brought smiles to people around him and that he is in our memories. I will always think of him fondly and with admiration for the young man he was.



If there is ever a time that I can do something for you, please let me know.



Sending GODs blessings to you and your family.






Hugs,





Sherry

To my son-in-law, Andrew,

Tons of tears have run down my face since you left us. You were a part of my world for 14 years, I loved you as my son. I know one day in the future i will be able to smile and remember the good, the bad, and the goofy things that you and Marissa did together. Until then, I mourn your death; the future that will never be.

Four years ago already. It feels both too soon and like a hundred years have passed. The hardest thing is loving your spirit, while letting go of the good I thought you were meant to do in this world. The easiest is remembering our good times: times we laughed, came home to each other, and rested easy with each other, playing in the water, fighting till we laughed, enjoying the process of a hard cooked meal or a clean house with music blasting.
I remember taking a bite of your burger, then pretending it came that way and watching the look on your face. I wish I had a picture, your face was priceless!

Pledge furniture polish is not for floors

Shared by Marissa Satterfield on June 7, 2016

This story is from my mom, Nancy Satterfield

Andrew learned the hard way, literally, that I did not know how to clean hardwood floors. We had just installed oak flooring in our hallway. I decided it wasn't shiny enough after the first time I cleaned it, so I used pledge furniture polish on the head of the dust mop and went over it several times until it was nice and shiny. Well, what I didn't even think about is that the wood flooring butted right up to the ceramic tile in the entryway and out of habit I used the same dust mop on it. Andrew and Marissa had stopped for dinner and he was carrying in a tray of large soda's from Burger King. All I heard was a loud crash and loud cussing. He was really good natured about the whole thing and after awhile we could laugh about it. Both times. You see, I realized getting pledge on the ceramic tile was a bad idea, but it never occurred to me the same thing would happen from stepping from the ceramic tile onto wood that had been "pledged". It did. Andrew always used to come flying in to see Marissa. Let's just say I cured him of that.  This memory has put a smile on my face.
