Dave continued with the following:

"The family is exhausted and does not wish to do any interviews. We ask that their wishes be respected. They are very honored that so many have shown so much kindness during this difficult time."

I'm not sure of the readership we have on campus at Purdue, but anything we can do to spread this information is no trouble at all and we encourage our readers to say a prayer for Andrew and his family. As for Andrew's family, I think it's safe to say once you're a Boilermaker you're one of us and it's not hard at all to exhibit that sort of kindness.
