My abiding memory of Mandy would be her infectious smile and her warm, genuine personality. Down to earth, always up for a laugh and a chat, she was the epitome of sweetness and light. Gone too soon but remembered fondly by all! Rest In Peace. Adrian.
I remember Mandy as such a smiler, always laughing and a friend to everyone. So sad to hear about her passing and hoping she is now at peace. Sending love to her family and her beautiful babies. Iuliana Tristram (nee Di Domenico) - Monte Sant' Angelo Class of 1993
I’m sorry to hear of Mandy's life taken so quickly, and at such a young age. I hadn't seen Mandy since school, but do remember her as a lovely person, energetic, positive and funny. From one mother to another her loss will be so incredibly hard for all close to her.
Im convinced people who you love and who have loved you in life take a round trip at death. i thought mandy last week. 4 no reason at all. but as someone special who jumped into my thoughts as having touched my life in a profound way. the image in my mind was mandy skating around on rollerskates at a carpark near where we lived. we did it often. in fact i met her when she was skateboarding around her street, with her cap backwards at 11 years old. and she was always so much better than me. i remembered how she laughed when i kept falling over and how irritated i was that i couldnt keep up. in retrospect it was the funniest thing in the world. there is little in my youth that mandy wasnt part of. i learned so much about friendship and life and the things that are good about both through her. i treasure those times. and this is how she lives in my memories. with her joyous, infectious smile. skating around with a freedom of spirit i will always admire.

I met Mandy at pre-school and can't remember a day of my life under the age of 18 that Mandy didn't have something to do with! Some of the little things that come straight to mind when I think of Mandy:- John Stamos & Full house! - Going to the beach boys concert and lifting her above the crowd so she could wave to John! A summer trip to Hawkes Nest with the whole Sheerin family. Manday & I went "frog catching" and managed to get our nets tangled while bike riding and mandy fell off and needed stitches! Wasn't funny at the time but we laughed about it a lot later. One of the funniest seasons of hockey I think that was ever played with Mandy, Sally and I. We tried very hard!!!! Singing the song "End of the road" everytime we stayed at Berry Street til closing. My very first memory I can even recall, Mandy and I were at preschool and we were watching a cicada in its shell walk around the playground. When I was in year 1 Mandy wrote her phone number in marker pen on my school bag when we were on the school bus. My mum went mental at me but I memorised that number and never ever forgot it from that day forward! I could go on forever with all these wonderful little memories that Mandy gave me. Mandy was a great friend and I am proud to have been part of her life.
