Preston, I pray you, the kids and family find great comfort and peace in Christ. Her spirit was infectious and the way she lived as she fought is a testimony to so many people. She was a great lady and always had a smile. I tried so hard to talk her out of liking those hateful Cowboys, but she was dug-in. Sending love from the VanGilders....

I'm sad to hear of Amanda's passing and send my condolences to the many people who loved her who are grieving. She and her friends and family were one of my favorite things about travelling to Joplin and the surrounding areas playing music. Whenever I saw her in the crowd or chatted with her during a break in the show I knew it was going to be a good night where we were guaranteed a spark of supportive energy. Amanda was incredibly positive throughout her sickness and I was always amazed at her attitude. May we all show such strength in our times of hardship. I wish peace to her family and will remember Amanda fondly.

Amanda was the "happiness" that instantly lit up a room! I met her when she was friends with my son. Today my grandson listened to my stories and how she had gone to Heaven and wanted to draw her a picture. He said she was pretty and he too liked her smile. She was so beautifully blessed, as were everyone that knew her. Our community's hearts are heavy, she made the World a better place to be. Prayers to all her family and friends.
