She lived her whole life for her family and loved them with everything she had.

Amanda's life revolved around her three boys. She also enjoyed spending time with her friends, her book club, camping, and baking; especially her cookies.

Candle

Hel, great goddess, daughter of loki
Guard of the spirits of the dead
Our friend Amanda has come to you now
As Amanda kneels before you, Hel
Know how much she was loved in this life
And how many she loved in return.
Before she crossed over she was an honorable soul;
A soaring spirit, a brave warrior.
Watch over her, Hel, as she crosses the bridge
From this life to the next.
And welcome her with honor and glory
So that she may live on forever
In our hearts and memories.
