When Amanda was in Room 323 at Heartland, she was my mother- Jackie Cox's roommate. Amanda was the best ever - so caring and thoughtful for my mom: answering the phone and helping me to be able to speak with my Mom every night, giving her water, occasionally helping my Mom to eat, and always taking the time to let me know how my Mom's day had been. Amanda thought nothing of it, yet it meant so much to me; I live in Florida and my Mom is bed-bound, blind, and so very hard of hearing. Amanda is surely watching from heaven, as she was an angel on earth. I never had the pleasure of actually meeting Amanda but, over time, we became good phone friends. On behalf of my Mother and myself, I extend my deepest sympathy and share in your loss of such a fine person and dear-hearted lady.
Sincerely, Diana Gregory
