Amanda Woodthorpe

In Memorial

Passed away suddenly on March 8, 2010. Amanda was a loving daughter, caring sister, a special niece, and a wonderful friend. She will be dearly missed by her parents, Dale and Barbara, and by her sisters, Jennifer and Cassandra. She will also be missed by her many Aunts and Uncles, cousins and many friends. She touched the lives of so many people around her. Her free spirit, enormous heart, forgiving nature and beautiful smile were just some of the wonderful qualities she was blessed with. During her short time here on earth she embraced life to the fullest. She will never be forgotten.

  3. Dale, Barbara, Jennifer and Cassandra,
    I am a very good friend of Dean and Cynde’s and had heard of Amanada’s passing through them. I had had Amanda do my hair a few times while she was in hair dressing school. She was a lovely young lady. I am so very, very, sorry to hear of her tragic accident that took her at such a young age.
    Hold on to all those wonderful memories of all the good times you shared with her for the past 19 years.

    With Sympathy,
    Deb Burgess and family.

    Our dear Amanda filled our lives with many happy memories and there are no words to express the grief that we are feeling and the sympathy we have for the Woodthorpe family. Amanda was so great with children and she will be missed especially by my grandchild Taylor and my niece Hanna who experienced the fun times of Gingerbread house making, tea parties, colouring and the abundance of patience that Amanda had with children. The happy memories will remain with us always.

    Our love and prayers are with the family and the many friends that Amanda touched.

  8. the sun sinks low behind it’s vail
    with amanda’s spirit now to sail
    high above us all towards the light
    Swiftly taken away that night
    the pain cuts deep tears never far
    i will see her always when i look at her star….

  9. We all go through life with the love of friends and family
    Even though we know they will all leave us eventually
    Never knowing where the future might lead you
    No worries though, theres a future for them too
    Because even if there not in front of you they will always be in your heart
    Nobody or nothing could tear a love like that apart
    With that being said my friend you will always be with me
    And when my time has come I will meet you there you will see
    I know you are looking down on me now and then
    Up in a place we like to call heaven
    Make sure there is room for me when I get there
    Just so that I know that you still care
    I don’t know how long it will be before it is my time
    So I’m letting you know with this little rhyme
    That I will always be here no matter where you are
    You wont even have to reach out to me because I will never be that far
    Don’t ever fear because my love will forever send
    And I will be by your side when my life comes to an end.

    Condolences for the Woodthorpe family, friends and anyone who’s life was touched by Amanda. You will be missed but never forgotten angel.

  10. Save Me A Seat Up By The Pearly Gates,
    Because The Angels Had To Seperate Two Best Mates <3

  11. Missing you girl, always and forever <3

  12. I remember the times we spent together
    on those drives
    We had a million questions
    all about our lives
    and when we got to New York
    everything felt right
    I wish you were here with me

    I remember the days we spent together
    were not enough
    and it used to feel like dreamin’
    except we always woke up
    Never thought not having you
    here now would hurt so much

    Tonight I’ve fallen and I can’t get up
    I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
    And every night I miss you
    I can just look up
    and know the stars are
    holdin’ you, holdin’ you, holdin’ you tonight

    I remember the time you told me about when you were eight
    And all those things you said that night that just couldn’t wait
    I remember the car you were last seen in
    and the games we would play
    All the times we spilled our coffees
    and stayed out way too late
    I remember the time you SAT AND told me about your Jesus
    and how not to look back even if no one believes us
    When it hurt so bad sometimes
    not having you here…

    I sing,
    “Tonight I’ve fallen and I can’t get up
    I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
    And every night I miss you
    I can just look up
    and know the stars are
    holdin’ you, holdin’ you, holdin’ you tonight”

    I sing,
    “Tonight I’ve fallen and I can’t get up
    I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
    And every night I miss you
    I can just look up
    and know the stars are
    holdin’ you, holdin’ you, holdin’ you tonight”

    Darling Amanda, I did not know you but my son did. All I can think is that as a parent, your loss is more than I could bear. You are so beautiful in this life and in the next. Your existence has made me believe in Angels. Watch over those who love you so dearly. They need to feel your presence in their lives. Sweet Angel, I pray for your peace and happiness.I know God has a higher calling for you. You have touched our lives to let us know how precious these few moments on earth are. I feel it. We all feel it. Thank you precious Angel for the blessings you bring to each of our tomorrows.

  14. Although I have only met Amanda a few times.the times were great. I can’t stop thinking about the tragic loss of your beautiful daughter, sister,and friend. My sympathy is with her family and i’m praying for your family and friends… Amanda was a wonderful young lady.. Ill miss you Amanda.. keep watching over us.. <3 Loves ya..

  15. To the family and friends of Amanda,

    I have seen all the comments on her Group page and know Brooke. I am so sorry for all that it has done to your family and the grieving I imagine will take years to recover from. Please try and console yourselves with the fact that she left you with so many memories and she will truley never be gone. She will be there in your times of need if you ask it of her I belive that with all my heart (I know my dad still comes when asked).
    She seemed like she was well loved and that is what this life is about having a connection being happy and loved and it seems like all of you gave her that in life, some never find it. For that you gave her the best life we could ever ask for.
    As many have said in messages on articles PLEASE lets hope all have learned from the mistakes made on that tragic night so more don’t have to go through this heart break, don’t let her death go to waste and be forgotten. She I believe will be a voice that could be heard for years and years if used to help others
    Marie and family

  16. We just found out today about Amanada’s tragic & accidental passing. She has done our hair periodically & was a softspoken, beautiful young woman. She spoke lovingly of her family – in her gentle manner she would share about the family dog & her relationship with her sisters, whom she enjoyed being with. Our deepest sympathy & prayers go out to you, her family, in your grief.
    Lori Marier & daughters

  17. missing you a year later, bestfriends for eternity <3 xoxo

  18. Amanda, I’m missing you still four years later. My beautiful precious daughter, I love you so very much. I will see you again when it is my time and we will be together again!

    Love mom.

  19. To the Woodthorpe family, I’m very sorry for your loss. No matter how much time passes we still feel the loss of our loved ones and view death as God does, an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) May you find comfort and strength in his promise at Revelation 21:3,4 that shows soon there will be no more death, and we can see our loved ones again. Please accept my deepest condolences.
