My condolences to the family. Andrea was a sweet kind person. I had the pleasure of working with Andrea my senior year at Marion High school in 1999. She was always so sweet and caring. I also bought my first car from Andrea and Lindell. I will always remember her kindness and sweet smile. Praying for you all in this difficult time.
