I have tried several times to write this note, It's so hard to express my feelings about Amanda. She was so special to me, and like my daughter in so many ways. She always knew how to lift me up, when I needed it. She was a beautiful, thoughtful,lovi ng woman. We will gain strength from knowing she would want us to be strong. Your memories will carry you in the days ahead. Know my heart is broken also. I love all of you...Aunt Carlette

What happiness there is for you who weep, for the time will come when you shall laugh with joy!
Luke 6:21
What joy Amanda brought to so many people. She packed 100 years of living into to just 50 years. She looked for happiness and found it. She also wanted others to be happy. Your pain at this time is more than one can bear alone. Know that our thoughts are with you. Our prayers are for you. Reach out to God for that comfort and peace that only He can give. Reach out to family, relatives, friends and loved ones for the support that you need and deserve. God will provide.

Prayer for us all. God, we know you recognize that every person we lose is a gift to be treasured and a part of our hearts forever. Thank you for understanding that although we believe in eternal life, it hurts so much to lose someone we love. Comfort those of us who are grieving, Lord. Fill us with the knowledge that you are grieving with us. Carry us through this difficult time. Amen.

Brian, Malary, Tiffany, Courtney and Spencer, Mikey, Braelynn, Jude, and Keira Marie we love you as your hearts are broken. Know that our hearts are broken as well.
Aunt Wendy, Rodney, Kelley, Alexis, Trevor, David and Charlie.

To Brian, Malary, Tiffany, Courtney, Spencer: Words cannot express the pain I feel for you. Your mother was one of the strongest women I have ever known. She was so proud of all of you and who you have become. You are all in my prayers constantly for peace, strength and comfort during this time. She may be gone, but her strength will surely see us through this. We are here together. Love Aunt Nene
