Andrew Dudley had a kind, funny, caring and unselfish character all the time. As a former classmate of his, I know there was never a dull moment—he truly lived his life on the edge.

Next time you see your family or friends, don't be afraid to give them a hug. Life is precious, and you only get one chance, so here is my advice to you: Appreciate the ones around you, because they are there for a reason. Truly live your lives to the fullest and tell your family you love them every chance you get—because you really don’t know the next time you will be able to.

Rest in peace, Andrew. Seven months later, we still think about you, your friends and family.
