Amanda Scout Wells Memorial Fund

Last Friday, January 30, 2015, we received the most horrifying news.  The sheriff's office called and said we had to get to my sister's house immediately to pick up her girls as Amada Scout Wells had passed away. 
Trevor took the call and got off the phone and just said get in the car, we have to go to Jenny's now.  He wouldn't tell me why.  Once we were on the road he told me.  Amanda was deceased. 

My sister and her husband had left not 4 hours earlier to celebrate their 20th anniversary in Orlando.  This was the first time they had left by themselves since Amanda was born just 6 years earlier.  My mom was taking care of the girls.  Amanda had gone down for her nap and had a siezure in her sleep and passed away.

Amanda was born with cobblestone lissencephaly.  She had developed amazingly and was able to communicate in her own way though belly aching laughs and amazing smiles.  She was the kindest most gentle person you would meet and you would instantly fall in love with her.  She knew who you were and loved to smile and laugh. 

Trevor and I decided to put this memorial together as my sister and brother-in-law have very large medical and funeral expenses to cover and if you feel lead to offer anything towards their expenses please click through to donate.

Services will be held Friday February 6, 2015 at Wells Memorial, 1903 W. Reynolds St., Plant City FL. Additional pictures can be found at and clicking on Amanda Scout Wells on the right side of the page.  You can also send flowers through that page or sign the guest book

Thank you
