Pastor Trevor & Family,
Our hearts go out
to you on the passing of your dear son, Andrew. You're in our thoughts and prayers as we mourn your loss and rejoice in
his heavenly homecoming.
"His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches you."
Trevor, Carol, & Joanna -
I have been praying
for you guys, & I cannot imagine the pain and heartache you are experiencing with the loss of Andrew. Yet I rejoice with
you as well, knowing that he is not suffering anymore, & that he now has a perfect body & is dancing for Jesus.
Trevor, Carol, & Joanna -
I have been praying
for you all since I first heard of Andrew's condition. He was truly a remarkable, spirited, intelligent, giving, &
faithful young man. While its been years since you lived down the street from us, I still remember his smile & the way
he would play with the kids like it was just yesterday. His positive attitude & unending faith through the journey of
his illness was an inspiration, & I saw (through pictures) that his smile never left his face. I rejoice with you for
knowing he is finally pain free, dancing for Jesus, & home - but I pray for your hearts as you miss him here on earth
and wait for the day you see him again.
Love and prayers from Sylvania,
Beth (Schuele) Davis and kids
The world will not be as bright without you.
will forever be Loved and missed
never met in person, Andrew had a profound effect on the lives of the people he touched in the online game he loved. Our thoughts
and prayers go to the family, and Magiciana will always remain in our hearts
Teri McMillan from Evony
I knew Andrew through Evony, he was a bright light.
My thoughts and prayers
are with your family.
in our hearts Andrew.
Much love to Carol, Trevor and Joanna at this sad time xx
Your fun spirit and laughter will be missed.
Your positive attitude was an inspiration to us all.
Fly high on your Magic carpet.
Lay down your swords and shed no more
Throw your worn shields away
Cast no eyes
towards the enemies shore
A brother in arms has fallen this day
Let the silence speak loudly for now
his words will echo amongst the halls
Raise no tears or sweat upon your brow
We stand to remember a great brother
Put your weary hand to feel your heartbeat
and feel his memory slowly grow within
A man who
to strangers would often greet
with a hello to the world he would always begin
Speak of our brother a hero
that stood tall
barbarians would cower at the hooves of thunder
and his armies tore down many city walls
transports would march away with the plunder
The stories of his battles against huge odds
Against the foe
that laughed at his motley crew
But he stood tall and cast fear into the war gods
As his soldier and hero's
A hole is felt an eternal bottomless pit
Our brother has parted and a shadow thrown
of fallen from grind and grit
He will be remembered the seeds are sown
My brother in arms your general stands
Andrew Steele was known by one name to us
Magiciana your name is set to Valhallas hall
we will hold your
memory and for good and just
So break out those barrels of mead
and let the laughter and stories be told
Of Magicana none more noble in breed
a man with actions and words both brash and bold
Our Sylvania neighbors- Trevor, Carol and Joanna,
Our sympathy and
prayers to you.
May God's peace comfort you today and always.

The Steele Family,
I had the most wonderful time taking care of Andrew and his ever breaking glasses when I worked for
Dr. Kruszewski's office in Sylvania, OH. I will always remember Andrew with that huge smile on his face. Even when we
couldn't find a contact stuck in his eye! I am so sorry for your loss. Your family is in my prayers.
Trevor, Carol & Family,
Our hearts go
out to you at this time. Unfortunately we did not get to know Andrew, but know that he must have been a wonderful young man,
given who his parents are. Please know that your church family is here for you in any way that you need us and that our hearts
are very heavy right now knowing the sorrow that you are feeling at this time. Only time can heal your broken hearts, and
God's amazing love and comfort will pull you through. We pray for peace and strength as you face the days ahead. And we
look ahead to the joy that you will feel when you see Andrew again one day in heaven. It's not good-bye, it's see
you soon! May God bless each of you. In Christ's love...

and he himself...So hard !! so Very hard.. A smile now knowing he is with our heavenly father, no more pain, no more suffering

I knew Trevor as an online friend from the game Evony. He and the folks like him were why I played the
game. He was bright, competitive and brought a great sense of humor and mature dignity to our our interactions. He will be
sorely missed by the Evony community from the US to New Zealand.
Stuart "Lord Chisel" Halloran
May the love of God sustain you, the peace of God be with you,
and the promise
of God comfort you.
