Andy Crapol

He Never Walked Alone

​A place to remember our friend.

5 Years Later

5 years ago today we lost one of the loves of my life, Andy . Still feels fresh and raw. And yet so much has happened since.

Today I look back at the last five years and I'm thankful for all of our friends today, who work so hard to be together at least once a year. I'm thankful for Liverpool fighting for a place in the Champions League, for the first time since he passed. He'd be shocked and elated, and so jealous I have a Gerrard jersey hanging in my den that reads "To Andy, He Never Walked Alone."

Finally, I'm thankful for my son, who not coincidentally got his first pair of Sambas and a size 3 soccer ball this week.

Every day I push on for the life you led, and the life you were meant to have. We love you, little buddy.
