I really didn't know Amanda personally but she was such a wonderful friend to my aunts Elizabeth &
Rosa Hofer. Someone mentioned her baked goods - they often mentions her goodies!! Her visits with them & whatever she did for them or with them was so loved & appreciated by them. I did meet her serval times when visiting my aunts.

We have such sweet memories of Aunt Amanda.....she talked and laughed at the same time. She was an excellent baker of caramel rolls and Kuchen. We'll really miss seeing her here, but know it won't be long before we see her in Heaven again.
