Amanda, I cannot imagine the pain you're in right now. I cannot imagine the size of the huge hole in your life or heart right now. To say I am so sorry for your loss fades in comparison to the huge loss you have suffered. I remember that beautiful little girl that use to run around next door. She was full of life and always with a smile on her face. Although we know God has plucked this beautiful soul from your physical presence, Amari will forever be in your heart and all those that know and love her. Please know that Ernest and I are praying for you and your family during this time. We pray that you will feel the loving warmth of God's love, peace, and comfort on this troublesome journey. We love you so much and pray without ceasing. With all our love and sympathy.....Ernest and Carol Reid
