      Andi was always warm and friendly. She gave to all and was happiest when she surrounded by those she loved. The world has lost someone who made a positive difference. She will be missed.

    Andi is such a caring and compassionate friend. Loyalty should have been her middle name. What a friend. I will miss her.

    Anyone who knew “Andi” knew what a beautiful person she was inside and out. Always a positive person whom complimented you about something. She had such a huge heart and loved so many people, especially her family and those she considered family. I will miss her so much, but I am thankful for the time I had getting to know her over the years. She was ALWAYS the same person, no matter what. We should all live our lives like Andi and see the best in everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family and friends. We lost a great woman, but heaven gained an absolute angel. R.I.P. Andrea White!!! 😢🙏💔
