Amanda Marie (Williams) Sowers came into the world July 2, 1982, much to her mother’s delight. The doctor was sure she was a boy. Amanda grew into a strong willed, independent child. She loved tormenting her brother. She started her love of piano at age 6, taking lessons for 10 years. She discovered another love, speaking Spanish in high school. She got all A’s. Sometimes when her mom woke her up, she was speaking Spanish! She got to go to Mexico after graduating, a trip she loved. Amanda went to Massage Therapy School, becoming a LMT. Amanda loved to crochet. She made many gifts doing this, including making hats for the babies in the NICU at Children’s Hospital. Her death leaves a void that forever can’t be filled.

I have wonderful memories of Amanda as a blonde-haired little girl at church where she never knew a stranger, was always smiling and always willing to help. Then later, I met her again as the one in charge at her mother's store where she still displayed that innate friendliness , humor, and helpfulness.

I was shocked to read her obituary and share your sadness at the loss of such a lovely wife, mother, daughter, sister, and aunt. The thoughts and prayers of my family and I are with you during this difficult time.

When I read of Amanda's passing sadness is what I felt. I remembered back to those days at the clothing store when we would talk and she would share of her classes on massage. She shared pictures of her babies with me on several occasions. She could always make one smile. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family

Amanda, is my best friend. She was a truly, beautiful person. She loved her children, so very much. She was so smart, and funny, and compassionate. I will miss her, every day

All I can say is I have missed my little bubble-butt, button -nose, ding-dong broad ( her special childhood nickname that she loved me to call her) ever since you were twelve years old and now I will forever miss my Mandy Marie. The memories have and will always sustain me. May you rest in peace with our other loved ones who have gone before you. Love your Father, Dan

Family- I am so sorry for your loss. No words can heal right now but keeping the happy times fresh in our minds may help:)
Dear Amanda,
I loved driving around in your car AmanDUH :) Singing so loudly and praising the Lord! Snowbash...where we would get up on the chairs and dance..we could care less who was watching. Many sleepovers were we chit-chatted late into the night about boys, music, and our future. I will always cherish those sweet memories:)
Siempre Tu Amigo,
Leia
