Amanda was my mother in law on paper, but in my heart I knew she loved me like her own daughter an I loved her like a mother. I remember family get togethers over the years when her arthritic hands didnt work too well , her and jp in the kitchen fixing food or anything else she needed help with, he was always by her side.amanda was a wonderful woman inside an out and she will be missed by me . When she would end her calls with Sam , she would always say tell Tammy we love her, an I knew that to be true!
