Although I had only met Amanda a few times, I found her to be a very nice and caring person. Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends for your loss. God bless.
Amanda will be greatly missed by many including myself! Im truly blessed for our friendship! My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. We will meet again best friend.
Amanda and I were together for 11 years. She once waited in line outside Allen Fieldhouse for 8 hours to get tickets for her and I to see Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls when they came to Lawrence. It caused her to miss her first day of summer school and not graduate that year so I could have Bulls tickets. I didn’t ask her to miss summer school, that’s just the kind of person she was because she knew I loved the Bulls.
I would like to say thank you to everyone who’s had amanda in your prayers and thoughts and to let everybody know that I’m very thankful that I had the help that I’ve had. You know Amanda and I were only together for 2 years but in those 2 years I’ve gotten so close to her and she was such a great person. Everyone keeps saying she had a huge heart. Well from personal experiences with amanda I have to definitely agree with everyone.
Amanda baby: im so happy that you have given me the opportunity to be a part of your Life and I will be with you in time honey. Im so stressed because I wished things had been better way before but now you can truly be at rest with your mom and dad and Aaron. I do love you Amanda Jean Holl.
Amanda was my sister in law for many years. She was a good person with a big heart. She was good to me and helped me when I needed it. I will always be grateful to her. May she rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Amanda was my daughter in law for many years. She really did have a big heart, a generous spirit. Once When I moved into an apartment, Amanda & Joe came to see me one day and she had two big shopping bags with her. It was full of things that I would need to set up house keeping. Bath towels, and bath rugs, small kitchen appliances and kitchen towels, and kitchen utensils just to name a few. I think one of her favorite things to do, was going shopping at Wal*mart at 2:00 in the morning.
Amanda, your Indiana family Loves you. You have made the journey we will all make someday.
