Let the memory of Andrew and the love for him be with us always & forever
  • 20 years old
  • Born on August 15, 1991 .
  • Passed away on June 23, 2012 .

This memorial website was created in the memory of my loving son, Andrew Miles Banaski, 20 years 10 months and 8 days old the day God called him home. He was born on Thursday August 15, 1991 at 2:56 pm and passed away on Saturday June 23, 2012 at 12:36 am. He was laid to rest on a beautiful hilltop in Caney, Kentucky on June 30th, 2012.  He was loved by many. His kind heart, loving ways, big smile and goofy laugh will be greatly missed. Now go rest my son, your work here is done. This is not goodbye, nor will you be forgotten, just tucked away safely in my heart until we are together again. I love you baby, always & forever!!!!!!

Andrew - Just a note to tell you that you're remembered every day by so many people. Every day I look forward to seeing a post from your Mom with your beautiful smile. You touched more lives than you know. Bless your gentle soul.

Dearest ANDREW... I have never had the honor of knowing you in person, but I see your contagious, warm smile and beautiful blue eyes everyday on your loving Mother’s sweet daily posts to you.. I have heard your story and I feel I know you, through your beloved family, a little bit. It is such a travesty that your huge, loving heart was taken home to God so early.. you have so much to give and teach all of us about love and resilience and family! I know that your sweet soul is watching over your beloved Mom ( and family), each and every day... and reaching down to embrace her with your warm spirit! She really needs that sign from you! We are all circling around and giving her all of our love and TLC! But we know how profoundly she misses YOU, and loves you! I pray that God grants her some comfort in her pain. I know you will be reunited again. may all of God’s blessings be upon you for the depth and strength of your devotion and love to each other! Your connection is forever!

Happy 26th Birthday my sweet Andrew. I sure hope your day was as amazing and special as you are to so many here who miss you.

Thank you for that and always letting me know you are never far from your mama. I love you my sweet boy...Always & Forever❤️

My sweet, sweet Andrew. 5yrs is just way to long to be without you but it is also 5yrs closer to be with you once again. I miss you so so much. I miss that smile of yours, your laugh that made me laugh and those big bear hugs of yours. You are always on my mind and forever in my heart. I love you my sweet boy....Always & Forever❤️

Our sweet Andrew, we miss you so much. It's been 5 years since you were called home, and It still hurts so much. You had a smile that could light up a room. Your compassion for everyone was admirable. You had so much love & laughter. I miss you and your big hugs. You are truly loved & missed beyond words. Love Always & Forever!!

To this day, I still can't believe I never got the chance to meet you in person. You were, and still are, loved by so many! Your mom has done an amazing job at keeping your legacy going because of your love for huskies and I could not thank her enough for it. Without you I wouldn't have my baby boy Drew who is named after you. Oh how I wish you could meet him

Dear Andrew, I can't believe it has been 5 years since god took you from us I know he must of had his reason but boy do I miss you. Whenever you stayed with us in Florida you would always find a way to make me smile. If I was ever around you I'd be laughing so hard. I want you to know that I miss you so much. I recently saw AJ as he stayed with us for a couple nights and he reminded me so much of you. I miss having you here but I'm glad you and grandpa are together. (P.S) Gracie is fantastic and I love her so much! I love and miss you both!!!!

Dear Andrew, I cant believe its been 5 years . you are missed so very much by so many.. that smile was so innocent even as you got older. One of kind.. i remember you would drive your mom nuts but all you had to do was give her that smile and she couldn't help but she would turn away to smile so you wouldnt know. Such a tough woman she is. Lil firecracker.. she has been keeping herself very busy with those furbabies you got her addicted to. Honestly Andrew there all spoiled.....lol.. Bud theres not a day that goes by without your precious, handsome face telling us all goodmorning. You will always be remembered..we love you and miss you and will see you again someday kiddo

Hi, Andrew. You're missed alot here but I think you already know that. I hope you also know you're a very special boy who has touched so many lives, even people you don't even know. You weren't with us for a long enough time but you're with us forever through the memories you made with your friends and family. Don't forget to check in on your Mom and keep giving her your special signs because I know it helps her. And please know you're always remembered. Your friend - Lesha

Happy 25th Birthday my sweet, sweet boy. Thank you so much for the many signs you have sent me these past two days. I sure did need them. This was the first year you went away that I couldn't go and visit with you but then I realized, I don't have to go anywhere special to be with you cause you are always and forever with me. I talk to you all the time and you keep sending me your signs. I love you my sweet boy❤️

Sweet Andrew, It is so hard to come to this site because it makes me cry to think that you are really not with us anymore. I miss you so much and I will never forget the last time I saw you at my house. I know that you are still around me cuz you give me signs. Luv you sweetie. Aunt Claudia : (
Posted by Tracey Banaski on 23rd June 2016
Oh my sweet boy. Today was extremely difficult for another year has come since I last help you in my arms. My heart is broken and I miss you so much. So many tears still fall but it's only because I love you so much. So until I can once again hold you in my arms I will hold you in my heart. I love you sweet boy and you will never be forgotten for I will make sure of that until my last breath. Always & Forever baby....Always & Forever❤️

Posted by Lesha Williams on 22nd June 2016
Hi Andrew. I never had the chance to know you but I think we would have had a lot to talk about. I know you are a very special boy and missed more than anyone could possibly describe to you. Your Mom looks for signs from you and she knows you are always there to watch over her. Thank you for taking care of her. I mean it when I say you and your family are in my heart. Some day we'll meet. Until then, know you are loved and remembered always by so many.

Was that you that sent the 2 butterflies to me yesterday that sat on my finger? It made me smile just thinking about who may have sent them. I lost a few kittens the last couple of days. Please take care of them for me. I miss you. I will be looking for more butterflies. Love you. Aunt Claudia

Sweet Andrew, your baby brother graduated 8th grade tonight and even though it was a happy occasion it also brought many tears to my eyes. Remembering when you graduated from the same middle school and you not being there with us tonight physically. It's just not fair that all these new memories we are making and family pics we take you are missing from them. I miss you more then you know and I love you my sweet boy...Always &!Forever❤️
Posted by Claudia Shanahan on 14th May 2016
Sweet Andrew, I just saw a shirt that I thought that your mom would like so I tagged her on the post. She responded with a heart, so I am assuming that she loves it. l can see her wearing it. I miss you very much hun. I see your sweet face every day when I look at my refrigerator. That is where I keep your picture. love and miss you

I am so glad I was able to get down for a visit and it was not nearly long enough. Soon I'll be able to visit whenever I want. Until then, I enjoy our visits in my dreams. I love you my sweet boy and miss you terribly. Always & Forever❤️

Hello Andrew! I sure have been missing you! It's been really tough this year, just not in the Christmas spirit. I love remembering the Christmas that you spent with the kids and I. How early they woke you up, so that you could open your presents too. Then, what a great help you were, getting things put together with me. I love you & miss you so much. Thanksgiving was so special to have your Mom & Dale here. They went fishing in the exact places you would fish with us. It was a priceless memory. I love you!
Posted by Tracey Banaski on 26th December 2015
My 4th Christmas without seeing your beautiful smile or hearing your voice but I'm sure Christmas in Heaven is beautiful. I love and miss you so much my sweet boy...Always & Forever❤️ Merry Christmas...I love you!
