Mr. and Mrs. Byrne, Brian, David, Richard, Erin, Leslie, Keith:

Words cannot express my deepest sympathy during this most difficult time. Amanda was a beautiful, intelligent and vibrant person. I am blessed to have known her. Rest assured that Amanda now dances around God's throne and that her smile shines on through that beautiful New Mexico sunlight. You are in my prayers and those of my seminarian brothers.

May the angels lead you into Paradise.
May the martyrs come to greet you on the way. May they lead you home to the holy city, to the new and eternal Jerusalem.

May the choirs of angels come to welcome you. May they take you to the arms of Abraham, where Lazarus is poor no longer, and there may you find rest, rest eternal.

Much love and many prayers your way,
