Vail Daily letter: Andrew’s memory lives on

July 20: Today was my first time knowing that Andrew Clamon had passed. It broke my heart. I never had the chance to get to know Andrew.

I can remember it was my freshman year at Battle Mountain High School as half the year had passed and soon came to find out that a kid in my homeroom’s brother had cancer. A perfect stranger I had seen around had cancer. I felt heartbroken for his family. But the more I saw him in the halls, it always seemed that it didn’t bother him.

When I would see Andrew, he was always smiling and taking life as it is. It felt like he was living life to the fullest and taking each day as a gift from God. God took him to a place where there is no more pain, and one day we all will see him again.

In our hearts Andrew Claymon’s memories will always stay alive at Battle Mountain.
