I never had the pleasure of meeting Mandy in person, only through the loving words of her mom Debbie. Her pictures match her words, her smile could light up a room, her eyes were filled with love and joy and she loved her family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of lives she has touched. May they find peace and surround themselves with God's sweet grace until they meet her again.
