We wish to Thank all those who cared for Amanda, businesses, builders, and volunteers who built a room at our home so we could bring Amanda home, those who ran & supported fundraisers on her behalf. Anyone who shared care giver duties, brought food to our home, and cared for our animals in our absence. If you ran errands for us, picked up necessities or helped in any way. To the Doctors & Nurses over the years who cared for Amanda; to friends and strangers alike who helped along the way, we are blessed to have such good family support, who supported our family through this life changing experience. And lastly to the Staff of the Delmar Nursing & Rehabilitation Center who cared for Amanda for the past 2 years. She was at home there and treated her like family. We were the lucky ones to have placed her there.
