I was shocked and saddened hearing that Amanda had passed. I knew her brother well and her father I think of as a dear friend! I hate it so for her entire family. I'am very sorry!
My sincere thoughts go out to Amanda's family. I knew Amanda ever since 7th grade, played many a backgammon game at her house and have always kept in touch. Her smile and laugh will be missed. Memories of her will make everyone smile, we lost a good one!
It is rare to meet a person who is able to penetrate the heart with pure genuineness. Amanda was such a person. Her infectious spirit and love for life are the things that I remember most about her. Although over 40 years have separated us physically, her presence remains. My prayers are with the Payne family and with the many of us who were blessed to have had Amanda in our lives.
To the Payne family, may God keep his arms around you burning this time. I will keep you in my prayer 🙏
Amanda was like another mom to Taylor and I feel the same about Holland. My heart breaks for your loss and I will never forget when the girls were in preschool and we met; you always made me smile and lit up anywhere we were. Your smile will be missed. Love you Holland and family .
