Words can not describe how sad I am with the passing of my Aunt Amanda.I always enjoyed my conversations with her each time I visited Ohio. We shared many great stories and conversations about life and living over the years. She always enjoyed hearing details about my vacation trips! It just won't be the same for me with her gone, I certainly will miss our visits. Amanda is now in heaven and pain free. She certainly had a long and painful illness.I love that my Uncle Kenneth was always by her side and was an excellent caretaker. I have comfort knowing that she died peacefully in her home, in her bedroom with her loving husband.Amanda, I love you and you will be truly missed!Debbie

Amanda and I were classmates and friends through high school. She was always a lovely young lady then and I know, even though we lost contact, she was always a lovely lady. through her life. God Bless, Amanda, I wish we could have stayed in touch after school, but sometimes life just gets in the way. lovingly, your friend from MHS 1955Joni

Dear "Matilda"It was my pleasure to assist you during this last part of your life. I will miss those bright blue eyes and smiles when I came into your room. Of course we loved giving Kenneth a hard time and many laughs were on him. I will never be able to listen to Conway Twitty ever again and not think of you!!! You definitely were my favorite singing partner and boy could we sing. We went through a lot of bad times too but now your are in heaven with all those whom we all missed. Maybe you could sing some Twitty songs to them. My heart is heavy and I will miss you my "darling"
