So sorry to hear of your loss of Amara Rose. I did not know her but I heard of the news on tv and my heart just went to my stomach on what happened to her. From what I read she was an amazing girl and full of life and it's so terrible and sad her life had to be takened so soon. Thoughts and prayers are with everyone who knew her, went to school with her, grandparents etc. She is in God's hands now and he will take care of her.
