    Dearest Lord,
    We entrust andrew to your undying mercy and love.
    While in this life, they felt much pain and found life difficult.
    May you enfold them now with your love where no pain can find them, but rather your love can heal them.
    Make them Guardian Angels for those who struggle with life, for those who struggle to see you and the love that is around them.
    Give them Lord, kind admittance to your Kingdom and bring comfort to their families.
    We ask this, as we ask all things, through Christ our Lord. Amen
