You will increase my honor and comfort me once again. Psalm 71:20-21. God is our refuge, cast your cares on Him and He will give you the strength to sustain you through this. It sounds like the light that Amanda had in her is in Kendall, what a blessing she is for you. We are continually praying for you Cheyne! Katie Aguirre Schoville, Friday, February 03, 2012 @ 8:03am - Praying for you , Cheyne. Tom Ochs, Thursday, February 02, 2012 @ 7:56pm - It was a sad day at the store and I have never seen people caring so much for one of our vendors but then again you were much more. You are vibrant, energetic and admired for your strength, with delicate whispers of color ... whose gentleness will always have a special place in our hearts. We meet many different kinds of friends along the path of life, each adding color and joy and beauty to our ...days. When I think of you Amanda I feel your strength, soul and love holding strong inside, from the moment I met you I could tell you’ve captured every ones hearts and our friendship grew stronger. Any one whom you have touched tells of the way you brought happiness to them whether it was from your caring ways or simply that smile that lights up a room. We truly love you and will always have you in our hearts where some day we all will dance in the stars again and walk the clouds together.

23: Tom Ochs, Thursday, February 02, 2012 @ 8:01pm | I cannot ease your aching heart, Nor take your pain away; But let me stay and take your hand and walk with you today. I'll listen when you need to talk, I'll wipe away your tears; I'll share your worries when they come, I'll help you face your fears. I'm here and I will stand by you, On each hill you have to climb; So take my hand, let's face the world And live just one day at a time. You're not alone, for I'm still here, I'll go that extra mile; And when your grief is easier, I'll help you share your smile. Remembering the times we shared Call to mind the love you showed The friends we embraced through times And the lines on my heart you've drawn You have definitely slowly traced Please walk though the heavens beyond Knowing you have left a true mark Showing us there is a real love, You have taught us from inside Now teach us from above.

She has always held a special place in my heart. This news breaks my heart and my love goes out to her family. She was my closest and best childhood friend and i wish I could tell her I miss her. God bless her and her family. She will be greatly missed. Courtney Danielle Laser, Thursday, February 02, 2012 @ 11:42pm Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - I will never forget your sweet face, your kind eyes, and your warm embrace. singing our songs and playing with our dolls, you were my friend. my best childhood friend. the trips we took and the memories we made will never leave my heart. although through out the years we have drifted I have watched you from afar knowing deep down you were as brilliant a person as you were from the start. My heart aches tonight knowing you are gone. All I want is to go back when we were young. When life was simple and we lived in our own little world. You were the sweetest person whose life has been cut far too short. I will miss you forever, and I'm sorry I could not tell you to your face, may you rest in peace my sweet friend. I will never forget you. r.i.p. Amanda Gordon, Thursday, February 02, 2012 @ 11:51pm - written by Cheyne Today was pretty rough as I am sure tomorrow will be as well. Making decisions on services and such is not a pleasant experience. However, we have decided on services and a resting place that both our parents and myself think she would have wanted. The service is set for 2pm on Monday (2/6/2012) at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona Del Mar. Everyone who would like to attend the service is welcome ... Amanda loved getting people together, so, the more the merrier. Thanks for the continued blessings and support. Ryan Purpero, Friday, February 03, 2012 @ 12:00am - I will be there Cheyne. Jennifer Lynn Byers, Friday, February 03, 2012 @ 12:36am - I will be there too, will be flying in! Allison Bottcher, Monday, February 06, 2012 @ 2:13am - I will be thinking of you and your family all day Monday. I wish I could be there for you. I know you will have lots of support. Know that you always have us out here and we will help you out any way you need. We love you buddy... and we will always love and keep Amanda close to our heart as well.

Today my beautiful niece, Amanda, didn't kiss her husband goodbye before he left for work this morning, she isn't taking her daughter Kendall to school or taking her son Jonah to daycare, she's not going to work, she's not going to talk to her Mom today to tell her what a great weekend she had with her friends, and how much she loves her and her Dad - instead - today is Amanda's funeral. She died last week and the medical examiner doesn't know why - Amanda Gordon would have been 27 years old this coming May. Her shining light has burned out here on earth, but the heavens have gained a beautiful glowing angel - you will be sadly missed.

In the midst of your pain, you continue to be a blessing to others. I know Amanda is smiling down on you from Heaven with that big, beautiful smile of hers. | Matthew Sexton, Tuesday, February 07, 2012 @ 1:43am Mission Viejo, CA - The funeral was beautiful with over 700 people in attendance. Thank you to all who helped make this day a wonderful tribute to the type of person my sister was. | Doug Johnson, Tuesday, February 07, 2012 @ 9:40pm Mission Viejo, CA - Posted photos to Amanda's wall . | Justin Land, Tuesday, February 07, 2012 @ 10:52pm - Thinking about you Amanda and in awe of how many people you affected in your short 26 years on this earth. I know you are seated at the right hand of the Lord and you should be full of pride for the work you did while you were down here .... I know you looked down on us yesterday and saw the hundreds and hundreds of people who you had touched. Your joyous spirit will live on through your family and we cannot wait to see you once again in our eternal resting place. You were an amazing soul on this sinful imperfect earth and now you are where you belong in a place of eternal joy were your smile will fit in perfectly. Rest In Peace.

If there is anything i can do please contact me Amy Sicre-Koenig, Wednesday, February 08, 2012 @ 10:24pm - Cheyne, I have a friend that lost his young wife about a month ago. He's an athlete with small kids like you. If it would help you to connect with someone experiencing what you're going thru I will connect the two of you. Mark and I can't stop thinking about all of you, and we hope you know we are here for you and right around the corner. Please let me know when Kendall might like to come over and play. Shaunna Catterall, Thursday, February 09, 2012 @ 7:14pm Signal Hill, CA - I don't know where to start or what to say. I can't believe such a beautiful, young, caring, kind hearted soul such as Amanda was taken from us so young and way too soon. It hurts to know that life works in mysterious ways without even giving a good reason or explanation. I wish all these feelings and thoughts that people have expressed about Amanda could bring her back. Cheyenne I am incredibly sorry for the pain and suffering you, your children and your entire friends and family are going through. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you and your family. I hope that one day you find peace and comfort of Amanda's resting place with the lord and will be able to reunite with her one day .. She's definately an Angel that heaven decided to take .. May she forever rest in peace Teresa Yochum, Saturday, February 11, 2012 @ 12:40am Placentia, CA - I miss you Amanda!!!!!!!
