Mandy will be remembered for her artistic talents, her poetry and a passion for loving her God. She loved being barefoot and fancy free, her butterfly effect of handing out smiles to anyone who needed one. She grew up in Nassau where she enjoyed fishing, picking daisies and loving life. Her grandchildren were the light of her life and made her heart so happy. She also enjoyed time playing with them, teaching them how to play guitar and just playing. Lots of love and laughter embodied her time with them. She will be remembered for walking with a bounce in her step and big smile on her face and caring so compassionately for others. Her family sends heartfelt gratitude to Unity House Domestic Violence Program for helping her move through many changes in her life. Aimee, Sarah, and Carrie you are all amazing and compassionate souls. Our thank you to the Hospice Unit at Samaritan Hospital. She received the most amazing care, love and support. Ericka 1 and Ericka 2, Brianna, Karin, Alicia and every single person who helped her and her family at the end of her journey. As Mandy left this earth in peace, the morning sun shining gently and brightly all over her, our hearts were broken. Our peace is found in knowing her and knowing her suffering is done. She will remain in our hearts always. Thank you for her many friends, her nieces and nephews, cousins, all for loving her as we did. A Memorial Mass will be scheduled in the future.
