    Memories of my childhood and into my young adult years are thread with images of Andrea. As my sister’s best friend growing up, many times it seemed as though I was lucky enough to have Andrea as a second big sister. My heart is full of loving memories of her beautiful heart and soul. Hugs to her family, friends, and the hearts of so many others she touched on this Earth.

    Molly, I am so sorry for your loss. I got to know Andrea when we bowled together. Everyone on our league learned that although she was small she could be fiesty when she needed to! Such a sweet ray of light.

    Andrea is a part of so many memories of kids and staff who came to Camp Kitaki. She was such a shining light. On behalf of Camp Kitaki throughout many years of CF Camp I extend our heartfelt sympathy and prayers.

    Andrea is a bright pure light. She may not be with us here on earth which is a true loss, but she is now able to shine brighter in heaven. Andrea made a pure positive impact in my life. She never had to try and put a smile on it was natural for her. This is a sign of a pure spirit. I am thankful for the memories I have and it was an honor to know her. No one can ever replace her. I am truly sorry for her passing and also thankful for the time God gave us with her. She is no doubt waiting and preparing to rejoin all of us one day in glory. The Lord has chosen to come and take her home .

    2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”John 14:2-4

    I am so sad that Andrea died. I knew her when I was her preschool teacher associate at St. John’s Lutheran Church. As an adult, Andrea gave me my mammograms at UNMC . I am so so sorry that she is gone. She was such a sweet spirit.

  • Andrea Pantoja Posted March 14, 2019 7:30 pm

    Andrea and I met in Kindergarten and have been life long friends. She threw my bridal shower and stood next to me on my wedding day. She flew out to meet my daughter weeks after she was born. She has always been there for all the big moments in my life. My heart aches with such a loss but I know I was so blessed to have her in my life as long as I did. She beat all odds and lived her life to the fullest. She was truly one in a million. Until we meet again sweet friend.

  • Mark Macko Posted March 14, 2019 8:03 pm

    To Merl, a fellow Sailor, and displaced Michigander, and to your family, my sincere condolences to you all, I have been very saddened to hear of this tragic loss of a beloved Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, and of course, a “Young Grandma”…from how I have heard people and you talk of her, and her unrelenting spirit, personality and zeal, she will be truly missed. I hope that you may find comfort in knowing she is in now in the Lord’s care, and no longer suffering. Keep her in your hearts and minds forever, until you meet once again. God Bless you and your family.

  • Patricia Fryant Posted March 16, 2019 10:16 am

    I was so sorry to hear about Andrea. I was Andrea manager at UNMC for years. Andrea was someone that I admired very much. She was a great employee . I was impressed with the fact that Andrea went to Clarkson Radiology program and became a Mammogher. After having two transplants. She enjoyed life. Then she met Merl and she was so happy . She accomplished so much in her short life. Andrea May you Rest In Peace.

  • Connie Clark Posted March 16, 2019 2:49 pm

    Molly , so sorry for your loss. I remember when you were pregnant with her, when we worked at Place’s. Sending prayers .

  • LJ Posted March 18, 2019 8:48 am

    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. When someone you love dies, you often find some measure of comfort in the memories you have. Something else that can bring comfort is the knowledge that you are not alone in your remembrance of them. John 5:28, 29: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…” The term “memorial tombs” as used in this verse carries the implication of preserving the memory of the one who has died. In this context it suggests that the person who died is remembered by God. So overtime you may feel that you are the only one who remembers your loved one, but God has not forgotten then. His memory is not ravaged by time, and he will use his memory to restore life to those who have fallen asleep in death. May this knowledge bring you comfort during this difficult time.
