To Amanda and family,
We are all so sad about your mom.
She was a fantastic person and a loving wife and mother. We all heard about your skating, soccer and scholastic achievements....she was very proud of you.
I am indebted to Brenda for her dedication and assistance as an Ophthalmic OR nurse. She had a genuine passion for her work that rubbed off on everyone. When you came to the OR and saw that Brenda was in your room, you KNEW you were going to have a good day.
RIP Brenda.

Dear Amanda and Family, I send my condolences in this most difficult time. I first met your mother when I came to work in ICU at St Vincent de Paul where I friendly and kind manners always made me feel welcome outside mown department. Later I moved to recovery and the Operating Room, and while I did not work closely with her before she retired , I will always remember her love of the OR.

Dear Amanda,
The trees we planted as skating Moms & Daughters will always have deep roots with strong trunks & branches, despite the fact that the leaves change and we all grow.
My heart breaks for your loss especially as the Covid-19 had tragic results for your Mom and far less so for my Shay. I pray that you will be able to have the arms of your husband Scott & Ryan tightly around you as you grieve.

Dear Amanda,
My deepest condolences to you and your family on the loss of your mother. Whenever we met, we would always get caught up on the news. She will always be remembered as my student in Kindergarten. Blessings to you and your family. Wilma Anderson
