Amanda was the life of Jake’s heart… to see them together was amazing; they were made for each other. The way their thoughts and sentences bounce off each other was crazy, meaning they thought alike. She be missed by Jayda and Alexis Wilson who considered her as a second mother, and we can’t leave out little Nehemiah, the light of her eyes, her grandson that she doted on. Mae (Rose), Glenda, and Gerald Wilson who were like her sisters and brother and the rest of the nieces and nephews who all saw her as their aunt. She loved them all.
