Frilla sparkle



What a Week! Who would have thought that it would have brought such heartache and pain. The loss of Amanda has impacted my heart, not to mention her families and ours. She will surely be missed! There have been several tender mercies this week and I know that Amanda has sent her love to Lindsey many times. There are so many great memories, wonderful talks and lots of lunches out with the two of them. Amanda loved to eat and would come with Lindsey every day after school and walk in the door and say, "Andrea, I am not hungry! No, a cheese quesedilla does not sound good, and those avacados they look so gross! No don't worry about it, I am not hungry." I am thankful for the knowlege that we will see her again but it is the next 50 years that we have to wait that makes it hard. We love you Amanda and we will see you again.

Jeremy and I have thought of Amanda often and we will miss seeing her when we come to visit you. She was one of the nicest people anyone could know.

I couldn't believe it when I heard about Amanda. She was one of my beehives! I was out of town this past week until the weekend at Women's Conference, so I didn't know about it until yesterday. I just hurt for her family, friends and the thoughts of what could have been. How tragic. Thank goodness for the gospel and what we know. But sometimes that's not enough to make it stop hurting. Give Lindsey a hug for me. I know they were practically like sisters.

I didn't hear anything about all this... if you don't mind me asking, what happened? I looks like she was best friends with Lindsey. My heart goes out to you. Its sometimes hard to remember that the Lord has a plan at times like this, but he truly does. I am sure that He is with you through this troubling time.

I'm wondering too, and feeling so bad for Lindsey. It is really hard to lose friends, and even harder right before you are garduating and moving off into other adventures. Give her a hug for me...

I'm so sorry to hear about Amanda. What a hard thing for anyone to go through. I am so sorry! This life is so tough, it's good to know that we have a Loving Heavenly Father to help us through the tough times. Wish we could do something to help the pain, know that we love you and are praying for all of you! Love Sharon

I'm so sorry for your loss. I felt so sad when I heard even though I didn't know Amanda. You have been in our prayers and your names were on the prayer roll in the Seattle Temple. We love you!
