    Victoria, my heart cries for your unimaginable loss. May you take comfort in knowing he is no longer in pain and will be waiting for you in the house of our Lord.

  • Maggie Christophersen says:

    Dearest Victoria, Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.

  • Jody Soria says:

    I met Andrew when he was just a child…the son of my dearest friend, Victoria. I remember him as a sweet little boy who adored his mom. She called him her little “brownie button”. I remember the day she got the call from the doctor telling her Andrew had been diagnosed with Lupus…her heart sank. She was devastated. Her little boy would never be the same. He was only 11 years old. And it forever changed her life and his. When he became sick, she cared for him around the clock…sometimes going days without sleep. Despite all her love and care, God had another plan. My heart goes out to Victoria and her family. I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t begin to imagine the heartbreak of losing your son. My thoughts, prayers, love and support are with you now. I hope you find comfort in knowing that his spirit is free and he is no longer in pain. God has taken him home. And now he is at peace…an angel in Heaven.

  • Mike Trenton says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult season. Find peace in knowing what the Apostle Paul tells us, “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”. He is there because he confessed and believed. (Romans 10:9)

  • Jimmy Guillaume says:

    Andrew I will always have you in my heart and memories it’s only temporary one day when my time comes we will see each other again. My prayers go out to the family I know he will be missed by so many.

  • Sabrina Ximenez says:

    I’ve known Andrew since kindergarten and we recently got reunited a few years back in our adult age. I remember knocking on his front door for the first time after many years of not seeing him… he opens the door with the biggest smile, with fake teeth in his mouth lol and he had the warmest hug waiting for me. :’) He was so caring and sweet I’m so glad that God brought our two worlds together the day before his passing so that we had one last time to connect. I got to catch up with him and hear how happy he was with where his Life was going. Rest in peace my friend, I’ll never forget you.

  • Victor and Gina says:

    We remember Andrew when he was just a little guy hanging out with his brother and our son Nick. We are so sorry for your loss.

  • Tory Davis says:

    Andrew is my nephew. He lived with myself, Ronica and Jelias for a good part of the last 5 years. He was absolute joy to have in the household. Remembering early morning talks, late night discussions and that infectious smile; he will be truly missed! He wasn’t one to love you half way or kinda if Andrew loved you he would let you know not only in words but also in action. Andrew was the glue that connected his family. Visiting all sides of the family spreading his good sprits to all he loved. We will miss my nephew! He is one of a kind and we are lucky and honored to have had the chance to love him and receive his love back! WE LOVE YOU NEPHEW AND WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!

  • Patricia Sedillo says:

    I’ve always had a special place in my heart for you Andrew. You were a very special person. You will be greatly missed. You were always so friendly to me when I saw you. Have fond memories of you. I love you Andrew. My deepest sympathy to the family.

  • Jan Matson and Bill Hays says:

    I only met Andrew once, but I know how special he was to Tom and Gerri. May Heaven be much sweeter with his presence. He will met my son Tyler there who arrived 26 years ago. Love and prayers to all the family.

  • Hannah Todd says:

    We all miss you so much Andrew! You are in a better place now looking down on all of us. We will always miss you and have you with us in our hearts. You were such a nice and kind person. You will always mean so much to my auntie. Always in our hearts forever. Xoxoxox

  • Victoria Chavez-Milliken says:

    At 12:19 a.m. on Sunday, December 13, 1987, I was blessed by God with a beautiful baby boy weighing 8 pds. 2oz and 20 inches long that I named Andrew Greggory Milliken. December 13, 2014, Andrew would have turned 27 years old. He is in Heaven where he will remain forever young with a constant celebration of love, joy, peace and happiness. It has been a privilege and honor being Andrew’s Mother! I will never forget being pregnant with him including the joy of 3 mos. of morning sickness, labor pains, brining him home from the hospital, feeding him every 3 hrs., talking to him during his feedings, kissing him all over including his little feet, watching his precious smiles, cooing, watching him sleeping on his tummy with his butt sticking up in the air, his reaction of hearing his own voice for the first time, watching his expression on his face rolling over from his back to his stomach, crawling, looking at his two perfect bottom and top teeth, pulling himself up on furniture, his first word, the first time he walked, giving him his first haircut, his birthday celebrations, watching him play with his friends, playing football, learning jujitsu, picking up and collecting bugs and snails, watching his love for animals, celebrating holidays, chasing girls, his school graduations, attending college, watching his excitement seeing family and friends and the countless special and precious conversations and moments shared between a son and his mother. As many of you may know, Andrew was diagnosed with Lupus two weeks after turning 12. His battled with Lupus resulted in many complications, but he continued to try to make the best of his life. Andrew was a brave warrior to the very end, and I believe God is using him in Heave because of his bravery and his loving heart! A Mother watches all these events unfold in her child’s life, which makes for an indestructible strong parental bond that remains unbroken from the time a child is in the womb through adulthood and continues until both are gone. My bond and with for and with Andrew will continue until my last breath. I am very blessed to have these memories of Andrew (my Brownie) along with countless more. I will forever love, cherish and miss my Brownie. As a mother, my Andrew was my purpose. I love you Andrew always and forever! I will see you in Heaven and we will be together again and what a reunion that will be because it will be for an eternity. Until that time comes, Happy Birthday my precious son!

    You will be missed Andrew. I always loved when you were at a family event. You made me feel special and I thank you. You had a big hug and an adorable smile. I will always remember you as the little boy wanting to wear that big rock Mike made around your neck. It was as big as you, but you proudly wore it. I forget the team logo, but you loved it. RIP

    Try to look at that smile and not smile back. Andrew had a huge smile. Even on his bad days he could still smile and make people laugh. Even now we can’t help but laugh at some of the funny stuff he said or his some of his goofy dance moves (Sa Sa Sa!!!!) I’m really going to miss my buddy. So many memories that will never be forgotten.

    Andrew I thank you for being such a good friend and being there for me when I needed some company. I keep staring at the chair in corner where you often sat. I just can’t believe I wont see you there again. Victoria, Aj and family, we are so sorry for your loss. To his girlfriend Natalie, I’m so glad he was able to find that love he had been looking for. You made him so happy.

    Rest in peace buddy. Sorry I am so sad over your loss. You really were a great friend. I know you are in a better place and no longer in pain but I really will miss that smile.

    Family knows no distance, we are all bound by where we come from and who we are. Andrew is no exception, we lost him to young, he now is in the company of a great family that has made great contributions to family, friends and deeply rooted in this nation. Andrews contribution is the love and respect he gave to all that knew him. Though cut short Andrews life was headed for greatness In his own right. You leave behind those who love you and admired you, and all will celebrate you. Andrew is one that will be missed, until all who knew him shall join him in his peaceful rest. God bless Andrew and we pray for all who loved him.
