Andrew Weston Hobbs, 1 month, died on Friday, October 30, 2009. Andrew was born in Durham at Duke Medical Center on October 1, 2009 to Gene and Becky Hobbs.
Andrew was a brave boy with more courage and strength than one could imagine. He meant more to his family in his short life than can be explained in words. We hope that his example in life will allow others to appreciate the time they have with their own loved ones. We will forever love you Andrew and live for the moment we can be with you again in Heaven.
Andrew is survived by his parents; grandparents Tom and Carol Glass of Lakeland, FL, Jack Jones of Astor, FL, and Gene and Carlotta Hobbs of Fayetteville, NC; aunts and uncles Bryan and Susan O’steen of Lakeland, FL, and Joshua and Katie McEwen of Lakeland, FL.
