I had the privilege of knowing this beautiful person for the last couple of years. I was her nurse who assisted with some of her medications. My heart goes out to her fiancé and her beautiful boys. She was such a kind sweet person. It was a privilege to know her. God bless your entire family as you go through your grief and may God give all of you strength in the days to come.
My Deepest Condolences,

I remember Mandy from her elementary school days at Union School when I worked there as a teacher's aide. She was always kind and cheerful to those around her. I'm happy to know she has two sons to continue her legacy. Sending prayers for peace to Clifford, Pat, Lindsey, her sons and all who know and love her.

She has given me two small lifetimes of memories in the short time that I have been graced to know Mandy. She didn't fear death, but that doesn't mean that we haven't lost her too soon.
I have been proud of us, she and I, as we have navigated struggles, and kept each other smiling and laughing at a pair of brothers she has endless pride for.
I will always cherish her memory. She redefined the very concept of Love for me.
Missing her is painful. Living without her will be difficult. Living with her memory cherished in our hearts will make it bearable.

I was blessed to have both her boys in my preschool. Mandy was one of those parents, that when the classroom needed anything she did her best to always make it happen. She also bought many books from our class book orders and the result of this shows up in the boys love for storytime! Her sweet spirit will live on in her boys. for sure!

Mandy, I didn't know you for very long, but you believed in me when I struggled to do so myself. You supported me and were there when I struggled and I'll always be grateful for you.
I'm really sad to see you go, but I hope your new journey is beautiful and fullfilling and without the pain the mortal realm suffers.
I hope you go with the confidence and love of all those people who were graced with the pleasure to know you, even for the short spaces of time some of us shared with you. Know that we're grateful for the time we did get, no matter how short.
I know you'll glow brightly in the next worlds, Mandy, you surely did here. Be at peace, and without pain. I hope to see you again, when it's my turn.
