Amanda Moher – A Family Left Behind
by Brian Coll
I’m going to start with the link. https://gogetfunding.com/amandamohermemorial/
Here is what the funding page will tell you:
Amanda A. ( Watters ) Moher, of Lafayette Hill, Pa, passed away on Thursday June 13, 2019 at Temple University Hospital, after a heroic battle with breast cancer. She was 41 years old.
Amanda leaves her children Evan (3), Dylan (2), and Stella (2), and her husband Dan.
Amanda is loved and will be remembered by so many. She will live forever in our hearts. We will keep her close, live for her and celebrate her life in each moment. And most importantly take care of her children.
In lieu of Flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Amanda’s memory to: “Moher Children Education Fund” for Childcare and Education Fund for Evan Joseph Moher, Dylan MacInnes Moher & Stella Marshall Moher. Donations may be mailed to Moher Children Fund c/o 300 Fayette Street, Conshohocken, Pa 19428 or can be given directly on this funding page.
Now….. here is what the write up doesn’t tell you… my heart broke when Dan stopped in our store to get something framed recently. My dad Jack helped him select the framing and told me that Dan’s wife recently passed away. You know, sometimes you are looking at a name on the paperwork and having a hard time picturing the person, well that was me with Dan. I had met him before when he came in with his wife to get something framed. When he stopped in to pick up the framing my mind instantly connected him and his wife Amanda. We talked at length a few years back when they were new to the area and recently had their first baby. Of course we talked the area and community up, the great parks, the libraries, the people… So, Dan comes in to pick up the painting we framed and everything just seems so insignificant in light of his wife recently passing. My heart is aching for him and his young children. I didn’t really ask why he was getting something framed but I guess in a way I did because he told me… when Amanda was going through her battle she asked that I frame the painting we bought on the last trip we took together. I guess she wanted to leave a happy memory behind and my family and I are honored to have framed it for you Dan.
Life is short people, appreciate what you have, those in your life. Tell someone you love them.
Dan, I am so sorry for your loss. I know my words are just words. I hope us sharing the fund for your children helps in some tiny way. I have two kids and if you just need to get out to a park or something let me know. I know you are happy with your choice to move to our community a few years ago. We’re here for you.
