Amanda loved all animals, especially horses. She cherished days at the beach with the sun on her back and the sand between her toes. She was a devoted friend and wife and a loving mother. She was always up for a day with her family at the lake, the zoo, the pool, the kids sporting events or up on Robert’s Ridge.
