Andie Studley was a wonderful person inside and out and above all, she knew how to be a great friend. Andie was a star student as well as a star athlete and did everything in her power to excel in every aspect of her life. When she walked into any classroom, Andie would always have a big smile on her face and wanted to learn everything that she possibly could in the time given. Likewise, on the soccer field, Andie was a competitor. From the time we were four years old, Andie and I have competed alongside and against each other and it only made us stronger as individuals and as best friends. Andie loved going out of her way to be nice to people and make other people feel special. If someone was having a bad day, she would be the first one to step up and turn their day around. Andie was definitely not shy when it came to standing up for what she believed in, and I admired her for doing so. Andie was the epitome of character, leadership, intelligence, and hard- work. She always pushed herself to be the best that she could in everyday life, and in doing so, she made others around her better as well. She was a positive influence in many peoples’ lives and lived her life to the fullest each and every day.
As the days and years passed, our friendship grew immensely. We were inseparable. We always knew what the other was thinking and many people thought we were sisters. Andie was very dedicated to her studies as well as her teammates and would do anything that a teacher or coach would ask of her. Her hard work, determination, and perseverance inspired others and continues to inspire others to be better athletes, better students, and all-around better people.
Andie knew that she was destined for greatness. She had dreams of playing college soccer at Stanford and being an FBI agent. She would not have settled for anything less than her best at everything. I will cherish the memories that we made together and will forever hold Andie in a special place in my heart.
On August 1st, 2013, a day I will remember for the rest of my life, God took Andie home to Heaven. Our families, the students and staff at Wylie High School, and the entire soccer community gathered to remember the wonderful memories that we shared with Andie and the happiness that she brought into each and every one of our lives. I was truly grateful to have such a wonderful influence in my life and I can only hope to live every day like Andie did. Thank you my friend, my sister, Andie, forever and always.
