Amanda
You will be missed so much you have no idea. The memories I have of you were when be would babysitt durning the summer in the brick house on the right. Never had to AC on and we would burn up.. So we spent most of our time outside always getting into something. We would always eat peanut butter and jelly. Those were some good times. Will never for get that laugh that you had you could always put a smile on someones face.
You will be missed more than you will ever know.
Rest in Peace...............................

Cathy and Allan,Our hearts and prayers are filled with sadness for both of you and the whole family. We wish there was something we could do that would make it easier but our prayers will include that you and Allen feel the Lords hand as he guides you down the path of grief, holding your hands and hearts close to him in the coming days, Often times we do not understand when a tragic happens but God has a plan for each of us, He knew us before we were born,To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord where there is nothing but joy and peace, Maybe you can find comfort in knowing that Amanda is at peace with our Lord and Savior

I really wanted to express my codolences to the Willis family. I have stopped by from time to time to leave a thought of encouragement from the bible. I have done this with Kathy for many years. I hope you know your daughter will be remembered by Jehovah God. Also all the other lives she has touched. I would do anything to bring your family comfort at this thime. I was at the graveside services and I could see the love from your family and friends. You might not know my name but I am the black lady who stops by the house with magazines from the bible.

Love To The Willis Family

This is such sad news. Amanda was a great neighbor. She cared about her neighbors and especially the elderly who she made sure to check on routinely. My thoughts are with her family.

I'm so sorry to hear about amanda's passing, I always remember her with a smile on her face and that infectious smile. She was such a wonderful person and will be missed by so many including myself. May God wrap his loving arms around you. Rest in peace, amanda, we will see you again soon.

I just wanted to tell you how very sorry we were to hear about Amanda. I had not seen her for years, but she will always be remembered by our family. Lindsay and Amanda were so much fun and brought such youthful joy to all during their growing up years. Where you saw one, the other would be close by and with them came such laughter. Amanda was at many of our family get-togethers for years because of their friendship and she felt like a part of us. We will always remember her as that beautiful, fun, loving girl. I have been praying for all of you during this painful time and hope that peace will come as swiftly as possible and that the strength you need to bear this, will be there each time you need.

Our hearts go out to you and your family in this time of sorrow. Just know that Amanda was loved by many. She touched so many lives. We only knew her briefly but that is all it took for her to leave a lasting impression on our hearts. She will truly be missed and she will never be forgotten.
May God wrap you in his arms and comfort you.

I was so sorry & shocked to hear of Amanda's passing. My heart goes out to all who loved her, which is many, many people. She was such a bright, sunny person & all I had to do was look at her & it would bring a smile to my face. I will miss her smile, her laugh & that confident walk of hers....Rest in Peace Amanda.

Alan & Cathy, I am so sorry about your loss of Amanda. Please know that even though I was unable to be there for the service, you & the rest of the family were and are in my thoughts & prayers. King Solomon wrote in the Bible, that even though others may not know our deep pain, Jehovah God does and He wants us to pour out our hearts to Him.
I hope that there will be a time in the next few weeks, that I will be able to visit with you, if you are up to it.
Love to you all,
Glenda
