Let the memory of Andrew and the love for him be with us always & forever

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!!!!!!

"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"
