From the bottom of our hearts we are so sorry for your loss. From all of us Bob, Loretta, Matthew, Mario, Kayla, Zachary, Brandon, Alexandria we have a hole in our hearts and thoughts in our prayers for your family. I remember sitting on the curb in front of Widefield H.S. waiting with Jeff for our kids to get out. This is not supposed to happen, again we are all so sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss! Amanda was one of my favorite students when I taught at Watson Junior High. She had a wonderful smile and she had the best sense of humor! She was a fun kid. She was also a wonderful teacher and gave so much of herself to the Widefield community.

Our hearts are broken by the loss of sweet Amanda. We had the tremendous joy of knowing and being with Amanda through the years because of her long and close friendship with our daughter, Emily. We have so many great memories of Amanda, and we miss her dearly. One of our greatest memories will always be her fabulous laugh. We can’t count the times that she would “light up our life” with her joyous laugh. We will miss it so much, but we will never forget it, or her. As we go through life, Amanda’s happy laugh will continue to bring us joy just by remembering it. We know that Amanda is laughing with all the angels in Heaven today, and God is holding her in the palm of his hands.

May God bless you, Jeff, Gloria, Eric, Bryan, Brady, Tucker and all of Amanda’s family. You will remain in our thoughts and prayers now and throughout the years.

Take care,

Pam and Joe Griebel

My Son Riley had Amanda at Widefield. He loved her enthusiasm for science and teaching. I know Eric her brother as we worked together at the Air Force academy. I met Amanda and the rest of the Rullman gang at a pig Roast at Eric several years ago. I could tell the family bond was strong. Gone to soon. God bless this family.

Amanda is such a beautiful person inside and out. My daughter Rebecca and Amanda were close friends as far back as 4 years old,
going to Security Day Care together. She joined many birthday parties between the two and their close friends. I remember her as such a fun little girl who enjoyed life. She grew into a beautiful young woman, wife and mother. She will be missed. Prayers and love to her family. Bonnie
