Amanda loved the beach and laying in the sun. She loved music. She played the clarinet for many years and was drum majorette for 2 years at East Henderson High School where she graduated in 2001. She began playing the piano when she was five years old and later played piano at church. She had a beautiful voice and really loved to play and sing. She was an active volunteer and served as needed in her church. Amanda was funny and quick witted and always laughing. When she laughed everyone around her laughed with her. She was kind and compassionate and always willing to help those around her. We loved Amanda, her presence will be missed in our homes and hearts.
