    I love you so much Amanda. I’m trying to stay strong for our boys, but I feel empty without you. You are the best friend I’ve ever had. I fell in love with you the first moment I saw you and spent the whole day trying to come up with a reason to talk to you. Even with all that preparation, the best I could do was”what color are your eyes?” I don’t think it mattered what I said because we both were feeling the same thing. From that moment on I never could imagine a life without you. You are the best thing that ever happened to me and you will live on in our children’s hearts. I will never forget you Amanda Josephine Koronik. I love you from A to Z. Always and forever. *blows long distance kisses…

    My dear friend Amanda, from the moment we met over 3 years ago you were so beautiful, a sweetheart, and a good friend. No matter what others thought or had said you knew who you were and that was very inspiring and I wanted nothing more then to carry the same charactistic that you had. I’m so sad that these disease took another beautiful soul. I have just one thing I need you to do now that your gone. Please watch over your children, family and friends. And please visit your children every chance you get in their dreams. I love you and the only happiness I feel is for your spiritual peace. Your at peace now Mandy. And God got his blessing when you showed up in heaven.

    My dearest sister
    I could sit here and write a million words and they still wouldn’t describe the amount of love I had for you. I miss you so much already but I am trying my hardest to sit here and think about all the memories I have been privileged to share with you. No words will bring you back and I don’t think that has fully set in yet to me. I have always loved you and I promise you I will always love my nephews and you will forever love on from them and I promise I will never forget you. All I have to say is again that I love you and please keep an eye on all of us. Untill I see you again I will love you forever.
    Heather

    Amanda, I am sorry that I have not met you. I am a forever friend of Joan Mettler, Zack”s mother. I remember her excitement and happiness was Zack was born and growing up. There was such joyful anticipation of your future move to Florida with Elijah. I feel great sorrow that your future has been shortened so abruptly. You will live in my heart and prayers. I aspire to be a good friend to Zack and Elijah.

    Amanda, I really can’t come to the realization that your actually gone…from the moment our parents met, we became not only sisters but best friends. We grew together from children, to adolescents, and then to adults. We were always the ones we called first for everything whether it was good or bad. The past few days I’ve been in complete shock and ultimately numb but each day it sets in more…I can’t go anywhere, do or see anything without it reminding me of all of the wonderful times we shared. We have so many memories and I wasn’t ready for those memories to end! I guess I need closure so I’m going to end this message with what I wish I could say to you. Amanda I love you, always have and always will. I am so sorry I didn’t come around much this year especially since it was when you needed me most even though you may not have realized it. I wish I could have helped you beat this deadly disease. All I ask is please watch over all of us and give us comfort to let us all know you are ok and no longer suffering. Let your beautiful soul kiss your babies everyday and touch their hearts every night. Help mom with her pain and send love to me heather john and craig too. Lastly help zach. He truly loves you and needs you to help him stay strong for not just himself but more imporyantly the boys. They need their father to sray strong. We all love you Amanda and although you’re no longer with us, I refuse to say good bye and instead say “until we meet again” I love you!

    Dear Wendy and family,
    My deepest condolences for your loss. No words can lessen your pain at Amanda’s loss. I remember your talking about her as a childl I know she was so very special to you and your love was deep. Sometimes we would like to wrap our children in a cocoon to protect them from life but all we can really do is love them with all our hearts. I know you did that. My prayers are with you.

    Hey Amanda,
    I know we weren’t friends for long but you know in the time I have known you I have grown to love u more and more. Your personality was and is always awesome. You felt my heart with joy everyday u came into work happy and ready to make some money. Amanda your life was taken away so soon but God has a plan for u. He needed another angel in da sky to help him with his garden and to help watch over them boys. Zach has a wonderful job on his hands and that’s to raise and help take care of them boys, which we both know will be hard but with u watching and helping it will be ok. I am soo thankful for having to know u, you will truly be missed. Love u gurl.
