Mandy was a unique person. She knew no stangers, held no grudges toward anyone no matter what or how badly they hurt her. I miss her smile, laughter, and most of all I miss her voice and hugs.

She left a sister behind that loved her too and would do anything for her. I have a poem that fits her perfectly:

I'm free…don't grieve for me now…I'm free. I'm following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard him call. I turned back and left it all. Could not stay another day to laugh, to love, to work, or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. I found peace at the close of day.If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, ah yes, these things I too miss.Be not burdened with times of sorrow. I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full. I savored much…good friends…good times…a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me. God wanted me now; he set me free.

Mandy was 18 at the time. She left (a party) and not even a one half mile down the road, she ran off the road causing her to flip her car. She flipped and did not have her seat belt on. I miss her, think of her everyday. Most of all I am thankful for the time I had with her and will always think and love her so much.
