I’m writing to share an update about our dear, beloved Amanda. Thank you for your many messages and photos you have shared since her last post on July 8th. As you know, she has been in hospice care with loving friends from near and far, church members, and nurses around her – a beautiful circle of care for her as she is going through this part of her life’s journey.
As the cancer is progressing, Amanda is having increased pain and discomfort, and therefore increased medication. Her moments of clarity are becoming fewer – the nurses believe the cancer is quickly advancing.
We ask you to now contact Sherri Farr at 615-260-8640 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to check if visits are advised.
We are able to tell Amanda of your phone calls and concern when she is lucid and that always brings a smile to her face!
Please continue to send your stories and photos to StoriesofStarfish@gmail.com and if you’re her friend on Facebook, please continue to post messages to her there. We will update the blog as there is news to share.
Please also know that one of Amanda's request is to have a memorial celebration of her life once the time is appropriate. This will be an open service that all are welcome to attend. Information about the timing of the memorial will be released once it is determined.
Amanda appreciates your prayers and concern – and she feels them daily. On her behalf, thank you!
As Amanda would say: life, love and laughter -- always,
