Drew Tobin Death, Obituary – Honey, Andrew ‘Drew’ Tobin, I cannot tell you how much I’ve missed you. You were the kindest, most empathetic, most perceptive, and most simply enjoyable person I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. I find it so delightful to look at all of these happy pictures and movies that everyone has taken of you because everyone who knew you was aware that joy followed you around like a shadow.
Therefore, I find it so delightful to look at all of these happy pictures and movies that everyone has taken of you. You were a wonderful example of the virtue of compassion, and you were like a breath of fresh air. I’m going to miss being able to glance down at my phone and see “Hey, ManiBear!” Following that, there was either a hilarious tale, a spectacular performance that was about to take place, or an incredible band that I needed to listen to.
I won’t be able to do that anymore. You have always demonstrated such a high level of maturity, intelligence, and class. You prioritized the requirements of others over your personal requirements, and your concern for each and every one of us was profound. If it was significant to us, then it should have been significant to you as well.
Despite the fact that we live in a culture in which we can all get so preoccupied with our own problems, you have always shown concern for me, supported me, and stayed by my side as though it were your life (myself definitely included). When I go back to the time you went to Texas, I’m reminded of how adamant you were that we make a pit stop and get something for my mother. Who would behave in such a manner?!
However, you insisted on telling her that you wanted to thank her for allowing you to stay with us, and as a direct result of your insistence, she uses the exact same cake stand whenever she snaps a picture of a cookie. You were worried not only about my life, but also for the well-being of my family and the community in which we live. I couldn’t wait to give you the good news when I found out I was going to be a mother. My excitement level skyrocketed whenever I considered the possibility of meeting you at my upcoming wedding.
There are a few musical references that I was certain you’d recognize, and I was beyond happy to have you meet Ellie and Kellen so that you might become acquainted with yet another branch of the large family to which you belong. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know them as much as I did. You expand your family by incorporating new members into its ranks.
You forced me to go through it, and I know that you did the same for a significant number of other individuals as well. You were the one who called me when I was at my lowest point, and many people are unaware of the fact that I have struggled with suicide ideation on multiple occasions in the past. You were the one who called me when I was at my lowest point. In the end, your phone call was the catalyst that allowed me to fulfill my dream of being a mother to a little girl.
Due of your phone call, I had the opportunity to gain a lot of experience. You made me feel so respected, so valuable, so lovable. Because there are so many layers to your personality, it would be impossible for me to convey how wonderful you are in just one paragraph. The news of your passing has left me with a heavy heart, but the thought that you are finally at peace and can be reunited with Floyd has made me smile.
I’m going to keep playing your music over and over again in the hopes of making up for the kindness you gave me and being able to repay you for it. I can hear you in the chorus of every rock song, and I can see you in the smile of every kind person. I want to express how grateful I am for the memories that I have from when we were both still little and we played together.
You are now a part of my life and the lives of those who are closest to me, and for that I will be eternally grateful to have had the chance to get to know you. You are now present in every element of my life and the lives of those who are closest to me.
You, Drew Tobin, are a blessing to the rest of the world. Please accept my sincere appreciation for you, as I am overcome with thankfulness. I am so glad that you are in my life. I adore you so much, Drewton, and I find myself thinking about you quite frequently.
