  45. Dear Andreozzi family,
    I had the pleasure of working with Chris on WS3 from 2021 till he left in 2022. He was a phenomenal provider to his patients and when he was tough on his coworkers, it was always in the search of better care for his patients. He was fierce on their behalf and meticulous. I was a better nurse for having worked with him because I knew he cared so deeply. I saw him a few weeks ago on the unit – he was so bright and enthusiastic about being on the unit again. His impact on us was huge and we truly feel we lost a member of our WS3 family. He will be missed.

  46. Chris was such a well-respected member of the mental health community. He lectured to my nursing class this year and he was humble, intelligent, humorous and so likeable. My deepest condolences to his family. It is a terrible loss for the community.

  47. My deepest condolences to my long time friends, the Andreozzi’s, for the loss of your son Chris. I pray that he is in God’s kingdom, watching down on all of us.

  48. Anna, I am so sorry, and sending prayers and condolences to you your husband and your children . What a great loss .

  49. Our hearts and prayers are with Anna, Rich and family during this most difficult time. We wish there were words to tell you how sorry we are.

  50. My condolences, thoughts, and prayers to all members of the Andreozzi Family. What a loss.

  51. To Rich, Anna and family. We are so sorry for your loss. May you find peace in the beautiful memories of your beloved son. You are in our prayers.

  52. We all live with knowing that life and death go hand in hand, and our next breath is never guaranteed, but when the loss is so sudden, and so tragic to one so young, so gifted, and so needed in the specialty he served, it makes it that much harder to grasp. YPI lost an amazing young man. May his family be lifted in prayer and find comfort in the arms of the Angels.
