Not sure what to say?

Met Amadea once on Sept 2nd when my husband and I stopped at Casey's for a bottle of water on an evening ride. She greeted us as we walked in. When we left she told us to enjoy the rest of our evening. While we stood looking at the beautiful sunset and took a picture of it, a gentleman pulled into the spot next to us, went in to make his purchase and as he came out Amadea was trailing him with his purchase. He walked with a cane and a limp and he needed both his hands-free, one on his cane...

Veronica, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Although we know Amadea is dancing with Jesus, words can never express our deep sorrow. I will always remember that sweet face and smile. It was a joy taking care of her and she radiated joy. They loved playing "beauty shop" and Barbies. My days were wonderful as I watched my girls pretend, play and dream with your girls. I am praying for your comfort and strength as you walk through this time. Much love, Tracy

Amadea was such a good friend to me and many others. I loved hanging with her at games and school. I loved playing sports with her at INCA. Even in highschool we would say hi to each other, when we played each other in soccer. She had such a beautiful smile and spirit, that no one will forget. She is already missed so much❤

Mike and Michelle, So sorry for your loss, no one knows why God chose to take her home at this time. She was safely delivered into HIS hands...I do believe she passed away without suffering. She gave her organs to help others, of this you should be very proud. Just knowing that parts of her live on in others, what a wonderful gift she left....prayers being sent to ease your grief and suffering. Time heals, the memories stay forever.. may Shalom be with you always, Karen Osterhaus

Words cannot express how sorrowful I am of this unimaginable loss. I pray God gives you strength during this most difficult time. God Bless The Temple Family

Veronica, Prayers for all of you! I always loved her beautiful smile and bubbling spirit. My daughter Sarah played sports with her at INCA. I also enjoyed the years in middle school when she went to Peace Church Youth group and I got the priviledge to be her leader.

Amadea left her mark on the world. She is not forgotten. My prayers go to ger family and friends as they grieve.

Veronica , Dale and Helen and the rest of the family. We would like to express our heartfelt sympathy to you in the loss of your loved one. May Gods loving arms surround you and give you the peace and understanding as only he can give. Caring for you. Praying in Christ love.

I was honored to know this family when Amadea was very young. Our paths crossed again when my son, Lane, worked with her at Casey's. They became wonderful friends.
You have gained your angel wings... spread them and fly free my angel girl...
