Happy 23rd Birthday in Heaven
Sometimes, even when the sun shines,
we cry for you.
Tears pour from our eyes and our hearts ache.
But for some reason, we make it through.
We’ve all been told to move on,
not to dwell on your leaving,
but not many understand our hurt,
and our need for eternal grieving.
In between the tears, aches, and grieving,
we smile when remembering the things you always said.
The looks you gave and things you loved.
And for a time, we dwell on that instead.
Its so hard to understand that you’d be another year older,
when you’re no longer here.
But we make a date to go to your resting place,
to show you our love and yearning that is so sincere.
It seems like just yesterday you had such big plans for number 21,
friends to invite, music to play, even money you’d get for a shopping spree.
Now all we can do is just imagine where you’d be in your life,
and how you’d act or feel about turning 23.
We can’t ask you all those questions we have.
Or tell you all the things that happend to us on one day.
We can’t tell you about all of your neices dancing,
or about your nephew’s impressive sports play.
But we can miss you.
We can even reminise about you everyday.
And instead of thinking about your last hours,
we will be together with you to celebrate your 23rd birthday.
Happy Birthday Amanda Rose
WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!
Love, Mom, Grandaddy, Granny, Angie, Alissa, Aaron, & Ashley

TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY,
YOU WOULD BE TWENTY TWO,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN AMANDA.
WE ALL STILL MISS YOU.
IT SEEMS LIKE JUST YESTERDAY,
THAT GOD TOOK YOU AWAY.
I`LL NEVER KNOW WHY,
SOME GO AND SOME STAY,
LOOKING TO HEAVEN IS ALL I DO THESE DAYS,
WONDERING WHEN A GLIMPSE OF YOU MIGHT COME MY WAY.
SOME SAY THAT IT IS OVER,
THAT MY LIFE SHOULD MOVE ON,
BUT I MISS YOU SWEETHEART,
AND EVERY SECOND I TURN AROUND,
I AM REMINDED THAT YOU ARE GONE.
I HOLD ON TO MY MEMORY OF YOUR BRIGHT SMILING FACE,
AND PRAY EVERY DAY, THAT YOU ARE IN A BETTER PLACE.
BIRTHDAYS COME ONLY ONCE A YEAR,
YOURS STILL COMES, BUT YOU`RE NOT HERE,
YOU WERE SO BRIGHT AND FULL OF FUN,
YOU HAD A SMILE FOR EVERYONE,
I STILL CRY AND FEEL SUCH GRIEF,
FOR THE LOSS OF YOU,
WHOSE LIFE WAS TO BRIEF.
WE CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY,
KNOWING YOU ARE DOING THE SAME.
WE MISS YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY,
AND OUR LOVE FOR YOU STILL GROWS,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN,
LOVE, MOM, GRANNY, GRANDADDY, ANGIE, ALISSA, AARON, ASHLEY & FAMILIES.
Amanda Rose on her 21st Birthday
A gift for such a little while,
your loss just seems so wrong,
you should not have left before us,
it's with loved ones you belong.
No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say goodbye,
you were gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why.
Gone but not fogotten,
although we are apart,
your spirit lives within us,
forever in our heart.
We will forget that you ever frowned,
and remember only your smile,
for God blessed us so much,
even if it was for a little while.
We still miss you,
and our love still grows,
for the one we long to see again,
our beautiful Amanda Rose.

"Amanda Roses 25th Birthday in Heaven"
This day twenty five years, as you all know, Amanda Rose was born. There were five of us kids & Amanda was the fourth. Whenwe were all younger, we were sort of indescribable. I would't call us siblings in the direct meaning of the word, though we fought & fussed like siblings do,, we were an extraordinary set of siblings because our love was stronger than alot of familes. Now today it's Amanda's 25th birthday and she's celeb in Heaven without her Mother, without her siblings, without her best friends. And even tho she still has us 4 siblings, along with a nephew & 4 nieces, 2 of which she never got the chance tomeet, none of us are the same without her & none of us will ever be the same after just knowing her. I know everyone here has been touched by someone that left too soon & I know they were all special in their very own way. But this day in my heart & in my famile's heart it will always be Amanda Rose's day. The pain Amanda put us throughthese past 4 years is nothing compared to the JOY, HAPPINESS, AND LOVE she gave to us for 20, almost 21 years in her own "AMANDA" way. If you didn't know Amanda like or friends & family did, you would've thought she was to putit in the best terms, mean, , for some part, whether it was rolling her eyes at us, calling us her uniquenicknames she made up, or just plain ignoring us when she didn't get her way, thats how she showed us she loved us & how we know her good learned from her.There are no words or maybe not enough wordsto describle Amanda. I almost wonder if the words have even been created yet because I've never been able to describe her to the fullest. We shared 20 birthdays with Amanda, some maybe not that many, but even thoit wasn't enough, I am thankful and blessed to be able to have those and to have all the beautiful memories of her and the life that made me and especially my family complete!!!
