I can not quickly or briefly describe the sadness in my heart I’ve felt since Mandi’s passing. I can only offer my deepest and most sincere condolences to the family. May fond memories see them, and everyone else lucky enough to have known this wonderful woman, through these difficult times. And may all the love surrounding Mandi reflect onto, guide and protect her daughter Alyssa.

Abigail and Josh Moody says:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mandi’s family during this time. Words can’t express how much we miss her. We will miss all the memories we shared with her, especially “Moodarific is Terrific”. May she now rest in peace. <3

Alyssa Gonzales says:

Hey mom its been a while eh? I’m 13 without you and I feel lonely, I miss you, I really do I think about you every day. I wish i could see you again, but not in pictures or my dreams. I want to hug you and feel safe again but ill see you soon I will always love and think about you. I love you we all do…


Hi my beautiful girl, I miss you every day… I love you…. Mom

Alyssa Gonzales says:

God…Im 15 and I don’t know what I’m doing, we lost you.

I can’t believe six years has gone by already. You are still as much missed and loved as ever by many.

Alyssa Gonzales says:

Dang, I’ll be 16 in 2 days, not even. That’s crazy. I’ve been talking with papa about how its such a bitter sweet taste left behind by the fact that I just happened to have 8 years with both parents, when half the time everyone else only gets one… Soon those even years will be odd and more of our times would be forgotten memories. I wish that i was older just to remember, but i just cant. Sometimes i wake up crying and i dont even know why. If only things were different….

Keith Nemcek says:

It is so hard to wrap my head around the idea that it has been 7 years since you took your journey into the great beyond. And what a 7 years it has been. I can, in just about everything, imagine what you’d say about things both on personal and worldly levels… and I can’t repeat it here 😉

I was at work today and for a moment it was like time was temporarily suspended. For about 10 minutes Josh and I were telling “Mandi stories” and several new associates got into the conversation and were totally interested in hearing all about YOU! I showed off some pictures I had posted on Facebook earlier and they all had very genuine smiles. I showed them my “your eyes” tattoo and they were blown away with how well the artist did.

I love you, miss you and think about you, and Alyssa, every single day.

Until we meet again.

And Alyssa… it has been so bittersweet to read your entries over the years. When and as appropriate, and if wanted, I hope one day to be able to speak to you and share with you some stories about your Mom.

I never had the chance to meet your Dad but you come across as a very well spoken, sincere young lady and that he has done a fantastic job.

I look at my older sons that are your age and cant even begin to imagine YOU today. I truly hope you are well.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
