March 29, 1981 - April 19, 2010

We wish to express our deep appreciation to friends and family for the many acts of kindness extended throughout Andrea's illness and at her passing to her Heavenly Father. Thank-you for the cards, flowers, food, personal support and above all else, your many prayers.

Andrea's story was witnessed by people throughout the world as friends followed her progress on this blog from locations around the world. More importantly she, as well as we, received positive thoughts and prayers from those family, friends and acquaintances who were responding out of belief systems that represent many of the world's various religions. Being concerned about another regardless of their belief is the beginning of the type of love the world needs to bring global peace. We witnessed those seeds being planted.

Andrea's struggle united us all in a desire to support her as best we could; through prayer, written and spoken encouragement and especially our presence. Andrea appreciated the support and shared it at times as she too lifted many in prayer because she was concerned about how others were doing too.

A nurse at M. D. Anderson called Kathy to tell her that they have never seen two such determined and wonderful women as Andrea and Kathy as they fought for Andrea's life. The doctors and nurses could not help but love Andrea and were so sorry that these last few months have been so hard on her. They said they were blessed to be able to contribute to her care.

Andrea has fought the good fight and has won her race, and is at home with God.

I can personally attest to the fact that those many prayers, from all over this world, sustained us and gave us a peace that passes understanding. However, while we are at peace, we are still left with "an Andrea shaped hole" in our heart. I am sure it will never completely heal.

We stand as witnesses to a triumphant end to Andrea's amazing life journey. She lived an incredible life, filled with rich experiences and much love. She is remembered by many as a good friend. Not many receive a better epitaph.

May each of us consider her example and seek our own application of how we too can be better friends to one another. May we too bear our burdens with the dignity and grace she demonstrated to us all.

Andrea, you have blessed us with your presence and allowing us to know you -- thank-you.

To each of you, on behalf of the Martin and Luthringer families, please accept our sincere thanks for your support.


P. S. This is the last blog entry to be posted by either Kathy or Bob.

It's as natural as anything I do to check this special blog almost everyday...sometimes several times during the day. Andrea courageously and victoriously fought a fierce battle and her efforts were not in vain...we are blessed because her legacy of love lives in our hearts. I stand in awe of you all who walked the walk...shared each moment of her journey everyday and can't imagine your hurt and loss. My heart cries out for your comfort ... for your peace as we all press on living our "vapor". Please know you are dearly loved and will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
Always,
Sam and Tracey
