Happy heavenly 35th birthday sweet angel. Thinking of you and all the fun you must be having up there. Walking along swooshing to the songs. It's a move that I have kept reserved for the Sexy Jexy Love Club. Gosh that night was exceptional. You, Sarah and I laughing, singing and just in our teenage glory watching the first wives club. Tonight I will celebrate an anniversary, sending a birthday toast up to you. Rest easy my friend. Xxoo

I miss you Auntie.
On days like these I remember your laugh, I picture you smiling, and I wish I could hear your voice.
You were the one person in our family who kept us all standing strong, your Loving protection kept me from making bad choices. You lived and learned so much in your life. I looked up to you because nothing ever took your joy, no one could bring you down, you were the most beautiful soul.
I can only imagine how much my little boy would love you. I know your not here but I still sing for you, I still dream about you, and I’ll never forget all the memories I have to hold onto.
Sometimes I feel the pull from all the tornados swirling around me, I remember how much you went through and I know you made it, so I keep on picking up the pieces.
I want to live my life like you did, just 110% all the day long. I’ll never be able to have the amount of courage you had but I try.
You would have been the most beautiful woman and done so many amazing things. I look up to you even still, and I will always.
I’m going to be 24 this year, which means it’s been way too long. 10 years...long enough that everything in our life has changed. Except you. You will stay the beautiful wild flower we all wish we could hold, I could never let you go. I love you so much.
If I could see you again, and tell you as much as I remember, you would laugh, cry, smack me, and probably want to tell a few of us to smarten up.
Love you more than any words could say and I miss you more than anything in this life.
See you soon Auntie Moonie

How many years have passed since that day we layed you down inside ?
Long enough for my lips and hands to be able to write this.
Long enough for me to not regret the way I treated you...loved you like everyday was the last day.
Long enough when I sang to you made you laugh made you cry made you see my heart as a man as a brother as others never seen me but you do.
Funny how your gone but your not
you didn’t leave me with a empty heart but made me seek out that love. Funny thing is I forgot how to love some days ... it still hurts and tears well they just don’t stop some days but I learned to row my boat when things got deep.
But Love being something often described but seeing it well it makes us believers in that there is something more, more to this life’s ups and downs than just the lows ... because sometimes love well it just takes us away like you
A snowflake on a summers day
Something never truly understood but truly amazing one of a kind
It’s not what I’m saying but rather what I’m not capable of saying in so many ways.
I’m not a writer a scholar a poet but I was loved and you were as well.
Time is short here and I’ll see you soon enough
Until then I’ll love till there’s nothing left of me with no regrets ...just bring a boat we got some catching up to do

On June 16, 2017 Luna passed away quietly. She was tough as nails, just like you and survived pneumonia, FIP, a dislocated hip (w a permanent limp), and diabetes/twice daily insulin shots for the last 5 years of her life. She was 11 years and 10 months. 
Thank you for the best gift anyone has ever given me.

Ability to withstand the harsh winds of life and recover from all trials and hardships. The beauty of a wild flower is innocent aroma, color of purity,and rebirth to grow with the identity of strength from within. Gods garden of children of the kingdom of heaven.

Nelly had a baby boy named him Lucas and the first thing Nelly said was, " Nana all I do is think and miss auntie Manda, I know she is watching me and I pray we will all be together soon. You sure gave her wisdom and dedication to look to GOD for the answers. This she does and stands strong thank you Manda, we love u always..
Posted by luanne best on September 27, 2013
Here I sit longing to talk to u.. listening for "MOOOOOOMMMMMM" You always called me to come and explain meanings of scriptures in the bible. I would say lean on Jesus the Holy Spirit will teach u all things for that is the spirit of truth and cannot lie. I read with those in our family who hunger for truth. my blessing that there are others asking MOMMMM, NANAAAAA read love momma
Posted by luanne best on August 14, 2013
Levi turned 30 yesterday..boy do I ever feel ancient.. Nelly will have a Little Boy.. Nelly and Ryan named him Lucas meaning great illuminating light, yes he will learn of the Lord and of his great aunt "Manda" who Nelly talks of each day to day, Goodness soon, no matter what each day brings us back home to Jesus. without him we can do nothing. Miss u Manda MOoo love Momma

Amanda your brother Levi is home and he is a great blessing to me. He talks about you telling me MOmma I miss my baby sister so much I love her so much. He is thankful for all what you revealed to your older siblings that being truthful in all things no matter the consequence is what truth is. That is perfect love, with no judgement only looking to the good that is what is lasting.

Missing you

Shared by Beth Mackenzie on December 3, 2020
11 years has now gone by, it's like clock work every year usually starts out by missing my best friend even though we had our teenager differences, not a day goes by with missing you or everyone else I've lost over the years. I talked with Mike a few months ago we talked about you and how you used to go to his shows. I remember Williams Lake with you and the family. We had so many adventures Chanelle reminds me of things we used to do being older now I don't remember many of them but it's great to hear all her stories.  I know it's been a few years since I've visited you and I was very close this summer to go and visit but I could bring myself to go and for that I'm sorry. I can't help to think in some weird way you all are celebrating Amanda today up there just know your loved for ever and always. 

What vould have been

Shared by Beth Mackenzie on June 24, 2019

i have been thinking alot about you lately. Been thinking about how things should have been. We were best friends we did everything  together .  We should have never lost touch the way we did. Candy gave us a huge scare this past winter. I know you were watching out for her. I miss you. Today is your 34 th birthday. I know you are celebrating with everyone up there. Happy birthday my friend.

Auntie Moonie,

Shared by luanne best on July 23, 2018

I miss your face, and boy I miss your laugh. I remember when we would walk to the movie store, get our favourite espresso ice-cream, and our girly movies. I loved how we would cuddle, talk, and laugh in bed until we fell asleep.. You were the best auntie and best friend a girl could ask for. I remember when girls at school were putting me down for what I wore and how I looked.. so you let me wear your clothes, and you did my hair and helped me feel like I was beautiful. I admired everything about you. I won't get your white clothes dirty, don't worry! :) haha! you always protected me and for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart,. I will always hold our memories close to my heart. you were so special to me, and I hope your looking down, and your proud of me. I have done so many things since you left... I wish I could sit and tell you everything, but im sure youll have lots to share with me when I finally see you again.. manda, so many times I wanted to tell you how much I loved you, how much you inspired me to do the right thing, and become a woman strong and tough, just like you! You'll always be on my mind, young and beautiful. Little biggy makes me so happy, she loves and is sassy smart just like you!! Im glad she was left here, because she reminds us all of you!

 I dream of you often... I hear your laugh in mine and it makes me want to keep laughing.. I want so badly to go back and tell you all the things you should have been told. like how kick ass awesome you were. no one and nothing would get in your way! ill never forget our talks.. you will always be my number one hero.. love Nelly
