Amanda Brass was a seven-year-old girl, summer day, playing with a bunch of kids out on the block. In Philadelphia there a lot of row homes, town homes as they’re called now. A bunch of kids were playing on a summer day and Amanda ran out into the street between two parked cars and was struck by a car and unfortunately was killed. It devastated her family, she had an older brother, and they still struggle to this day.
Final Farewell was able to provide all the funeral services for Amanda. The family provided the cemetery costs. The family is a big supporter today for Final Farewell.
