For all of those of you that have known me since my grade school days, I had 2 crushes. I had heard rumor of one of them dying and as of today ( April 24th, 2008 ) I found it was true. Here is a copy of the obituary I found referenced in our local paper:
Amanda Lea McCormack

Amanda was born in Wilmington, DE on August 26, 1982. She attended Our Lady of Fatima grade school and St. Mark’s High School. She had a gift with animals. Her sunny personality will be missed by her friends, family and her pets. She always had a hug and an “I love you” for everyone.

Ashcraft, Faith and Butch Smith, Jane and Dane Clark and David and Regina Ashcraft; cousins, Justin, Joshua and Jason Smith, Jill Anna, Alison, Nathan and Matthew Clark and David, Italia and Thomas Ashcraft.
