Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
Hi, my name is Andy...  I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in June, 1980.  My family moved to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, in 1981, and died here on November 5, 2004.  So I spent most of my life here.
I enjoyed rollerblading, history, science and music.  School was alright, and I did well there.  
My favorite things growing up were animals.  I had rodents and cats.  What a combination!  My mom wasn't crazy about the rats, but she liked the mice fine.  My science fair projects involved mice genetics and learned behaviour in rats, so they paid their way, in my view. 
I picked up a violin in 5th grade, and put it down a year later in favor of the viola.  I enjoyed performing and studying music.  I went to Furman Music Camp in 1995, following a seat in the Junior All-State Orchestra the year before.  I was selected to attend Governor's School of the Performing Arts and while it was very tough, I learned enough to win a seat in the Senior All-State Orchestra that year.  I also performed with Beaufort Chamber Orchestra and was principal in the Hilton Head Youth Orchestra.  I tell you this so you can understand that music was in my soul. I pretty much taught myself, and my mother always said it must have been born in me, because she could not even sing in key.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Andrew Anderson who was born in Ohio on June 17, 1980 and passed away on November 05, 2004 at the age of 24. We will remember him forever.

His legacy
Andrew's Legacy is Love, Music, Beauty, and Poetry.  

He was a gifted musician, published poet, critter rescuer, but his biggest legacy is Love. He was an adoring father-to-be. His baby was due around his own birthday.  He was so excited to be able to cherish this young life, to create a life filled with love and you.  He died when that joy was taken from him, when his baby was aborted, he took a shotgun and ended his owon lie.  How much pain do you have to be in that a shotgun is preferable to drawing another breath?
Andrew I know the pain you suffered and I am suffering it too. 
I lost my baby boy...

I love you son,
