She loved to spend time with her sons and loved going to South Padre Island and looking at the ocean and always made sure she paid a visit to the Basilica in San Juan.  She always asked about her grandchildren near and far.  She always loved a good conversation and a good laugh with family, neighbors and anyone who stopped by to pay her a visit.  Andrea loved her many cats and loved to watch classic shows such as The Andy Griffith Show, Little House on the Prairie, Monk, Perry Mason, and Gilmore Girls.
