    Jankie was by far the best bank teller I have ever encountered! Both
    Sovereign Bank and Santander Bank were fortunate to have such a dedicated and competent banking representative in the business. Jankie always inquired about my son as he and Amanda are of the same age. Your Mom was immensely proud of your endeavors as a pharmacist, Amanda. I did not know she was sick but missed her prescence at the
    bank in Manchester. Jankie will always be in my prayers and thoughts.

    Best regards,
    Priscilla Judson

    “You can cry and close your mind,
    be empty and turn your back.
    Or you can do what she’d want:
    smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”

    I am not there. I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds
    that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight
    on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awake in the
    morning’s hush
    I am the soft uplifting rush
    of quiet birds in circling flight.
    I am the soft star that
    shines at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry
    I am not there.
    I did not die. -Anon

    Dearest Amanda,

    I found myself in the last couple of weeks reminiscing about your mom. I will remember her as a loving, lighthearted, gentle woman who used to keep my mom with three children company. Weekends were a special ritual, crab catching then an afternoon stroll to the Whim matinee Cinema. Great for the women and us children with no men being in charged.

    As for dying it not an old cliche that “we are born to die.” We are just not taught to contemplate the beautiful meaning of both life an death before it’s too late. I share with you that death and dying is just as important as living because it challenges us to remember NOW to be a better person each day, to reflect on how we live and love. The Universe is limitless and so is the essence of our energy.

    So Amanda you are always loved and we are all here for you. I send you big, warm hugs and kisses and all the love you can imagine. Love, Simi

    Dear Amanda,
    We knew your mom from the bank. Soon we became friend and shared stories of Indian holidays and customs. She greeted everybody with a big smile and a very assertive voice. She was always ready to help no matter how busy she was. I do not know what one can say but with time the sadness will turn into fond memories. She will always be missed.

  7. Sheri Hall says:

Your memory will live on in your beautiful daughter (my beautiful cousin)rest in peace if Mandy ever needs anything she has a whole big family to look after her, me and my family included. Time to say goodbye but you will never be forgotten… sleep tight until we meet again one day
    your loving niece Sheri <3 <3
