Amanda, we share so many memories from Germany. You were my bestie, you were funny and fun, and kind and loving. One of the best things ever for me was Sharon finding me so we could share more. Keeping your family in my prayers, keeping you in my heart, and I'll always love you and remember. A true friend you certainly were. Prayers and condolences to all of you at this time.
