    So sorry to hear that Amanda has passed away. I enjoyed working with her…very good nurse..very dependable. Everytime I saw her I would sing “Amanda light up my life, fate should have made you a gentleman’s wife.” I think she got a kick out of that. I certainly enjoyed singing it to her. She will be missed. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Shon Watson Posted January 7, 2021 3:32 PM

    I worked with Amanda in the NICU at ACH. She was an excellent leader and I enjoyed working and talking with her very much. She was very proud of and adored her children and let people know it. I’m very much saddened to hear the news of her passing. May her family find peace and comfort during this difficult time.
