I met Paul and Amanda on Runescape and we did things together many times. Since then we chatted about things in life and I always enjoyed that. I was so happy for her that she was following a dream to further her education. I know that she (they) were thrilled when their baby daughter arrived not so long ago. I am so very sad and sorry to learn of her passing. The Lord chooses the time...he must have felt he needed her now. Sending prayers, sympathy and a smile for all the happy times we had.
