My dear Mandy.
Words could never express how amazing you are! Such a beautiful vibrant person. Inside and out. You were often mistook but for those that experienced the pleasure of knowing you there was nothing but genuineness. Kind. Generious. Vibrant. Passion. But for me Mandy you were truly someone special. I could count on you... To be there always. A shoulder to lean on. A friend to listen. A party to go! Losing a piece of you is devastating. But your soul carries on and I know you will forever be with me. I love you!

I met Mandy through her brother Martin in high school. She was beautiful, full of life, and had an amazing personality. We reconnected again in 2013 over Facebook messenger and communicated regularly as she was still recovering from a car wreck. I prayed for her healing and recovery often. In 2014 we were able to meet up at a church in Dallas one night for a famous testimony. I will never forget her eyes and her smile. She had a renewed spirit and she lit up the entire room. She brought Trent with her that night and we had a great time. I will forever remember our long talks and her contagious laugh. Rest in Heaven Mandy and know that you were loved and adored by so many...I love you!

The first time I met Mandy was when the women of New Horizon Vineyard Church had a spa retreat. Mandy treated us all to pedicures. She did have a great sense of humor and I sensed her kindness. I remember feeling actually uplifted by that pedicure. We usually think of going to the salon as "maintenance" but when you do it the way Mandy did it, it's Ministry. My condolences to you all and especially to Trenton and Cadence. You are all in my prayers.
