"I miss you, my friend. I was hoping I'd feel closer to you by staying in the place you loved, but it's not the same, because you're not here. I miss our talks, your laughter, smile and hugs. I listen to your last voicemail all the time. Wish you were here. I love you."

"I have always known of my aunt Mandy of being a strong, ambitious, and exploring woman. The story's shared from my mom, and aunt Rose of her wanting to get out and see the world at a young age was always something I admired of her. I once got to spend several weeks with her during the time she lived in Sandiego, while I was fifteen at the time we had a blast! Eight years ago I decided to move to NewYork, she said to me Michael....oh how your gonna love it there, that city is perfect for you. When I made the transition out here, I always thought of you. You will forever be missed, loved, but not forgotten. She was the only one who always called me Michael, I shall never forget that."

"Dear Aunt Mandy,
What can I say? Thank you for being an example to us kids. Living a life that exemplified strength, joy, and perseverance. Rising above challenging circumstances, and creating a world that produced peace and laughter. I will miss the qualities I now know transferred somehow, to my own story. Please know that I shall treasure your print in my life, though brief, but never forgotten.
No matter, I will always be proud to be a "Jeffries.""

The excitement & joy in his voice when he said "it's magical" was a joy to hear. I am so very grateful that Amanda made my son so deliriously happy."

"I had the privilege of working with Mandy; she was truly professional but never lost a personal touch which transmitted warmth and empathy.  Her smile lit the room.  She had a great sense of humor, sometimes transmitted with a wink! RIP"

I will truly miss her."

"I wanted to share what our friend had to say about Mandy.  It shows how Mandy could touch the lives of people with her loving spirit.  "Felicia and Danny, I am so sorry for the loss of your aunt Mandy.  I had the honor of sitting with her at your wedding.  Your aunt Mandy litteraly glowed with pride of the two of you!  I sensed her joy, love and spirit as very special lady."  Tammy."

"The one thing my aunt Amanda taught me was you don't have to be a victim of your upbringing.  No matter how hard it was, you can prevail, you can overcome, and you can set yourself up for a nice life.  I remember when Amanda came to town from New York and I had just landed a promotion at work.  She was very encouraging and gave me a very nice magenta cashmere blazer.  It was always my favorite and I still have it this very day, but now it's tucked away nicely in plastic.  It was too bad we lived so far away from each other and were not able to be a part of each other's every day lives.  That would have been nice."

"Mandy had a flair for the dramatic! Everyone was a sweetie or a honey. She lit up whatever room she entered. She loved to make everyone laugh! Sweeping hand gestures and dramatic emphasis were her forte. Her mother wanted her to be a movie star and she had all the personality for it! She loved to have her picture taken and was always up for a photo opportunity! She was passionate about politics and she watched MSNBC every day. She was politically astute. She wanted everyone to be treated fairly. She was passionate about her belief that everyone should be taken care of! She had such a passion for the underprivileged. She didn't want anyone to suffer. She gave hundreds of dollars to many different animal charities! It seemed like she was on the mailing list of every animal charity that existed. She would open her mail and see the pictures of animals in peril and she would give directly from her heart.. and check book.  We drank a lot of wine and had some really good times!! God bless you Mandy!! Heaven has another angel!!"

"I didn't know Amanda very well; I only met her a few times. But she made my dad, Jason, very happy during the time that they were together. I remember the smile on his face when he told me about meeting her. Amanda was always kind to me the times I met her. I'm thankful for her place in my dad's life."

This tribute was added by Jim Hanna on 16th September 2014

"I never met Amanda.  I never experienced her grace or light. I love my Brother.  The love and loss that he experiences and expresses makes me feel in some small measure that which I was not blessed to know.

Thank you Amanda for loving Jason.  Thank you Jason for loving Amanda.  And thank you for sharing her light."
