I first met Amanda when she was a young girl, while visiting my family in Ohio. There was a beautiful light in Amanda that drew you in. Her laugh and her smile were infectious.

My family loved her and she loved us back tenfold. Our loss truly is Heaven's gain.

Peace and love to her family and friends.

Amanda, I remember the day you were born. I remember how proud your mom and dad were to have a daughter after having 2 boys. I remember Jr and Timmy being just a little jealous but oh so proud at the same time. Since 1974, I have loved your family. Enjoy Heaven. Wait for us for we are coming also. You left such a great legacy behind. The outpouring of love last night was amazing and wonderful. You would be so proud. Yes, we hurt. Your mom and dad hurts, your sister hurts, your brothers and rest of family hurts but oh the joy you must be experiencing now is unspeakable. Thank you for being such a great person. RIP Amanda and enjoy Heaven now.

I was very blessed to know Amanda when she was a child and remember how sweet and kind she was and always smiling. She spread warmth and love to everyone around her, from day one. Loved her so much. I am so sorry Shirley, Dennis, Dennis Jr., Tim and Tina for your loss. I followed her on Facebook the last few years and was so proud and excited of all her accomplishments. My heart and prayers go out to all of you. Her memory will live forever in all the hearts and souls that she touched in her short lifetime. What an inspiration she has been, never to be forgotten. We need more Amanda's in this world. Love you all.

Amanda B Thomas,
You will forever be remembered I remember the first time I met you and we went to that restaurant and asked for a drink and they thought I was ordering a mixed drink. I came from the south so my accent was strange to them with my southern slang. I will miss you dearly. I love your family and I cannot wait to see you again in our new home where separation will never happen again. I am very proud of what you were able to accomplish in the short time we had you here Love you forever.
RIP🙏 Shirley and Dennis, I am sending my condolences to both of you and the family. We Love You and are thinking of you. Love Angel and Butch Gore.

My cousin Amanda may you rest in peace. You accomplished so much in your short life. My heart goes out to your family as I know you were deeply loved. I know you had a deep faith in God & if there is a better place you are most certainly in it. The world has lost a true giver & a pure heart.

Les and I saw you grow up in youth group. We not only saw you mature into a beautiful young woman , but a spiritually strong young woman as well. We were blessed to see you lead other youth - through your words and actions. Your smile, humor, and laughter could light up a room. We were so proud of you as you continued to serve others: in church, at church camp, and in the profession of nursing. You loved others well. You were so easy to love. We love your family. We loved you. We always will ❤️

Amanda was an amazing student in my ASL classes. She, Tina, and Tim will always have a special place in my heart! I am praying for the family at this difficult time.


Amanda was Welcomed in the world in a big way - She was the first baby born in 1982. Her arrival already got her in the news paper as a baby.
