I'm so sorry to the family for their loss. I didn't know Mandy personally, I knew she was married to Jerry who was a friend of mine back in school. This story is very sad as I lost my baby sister so my heart goes out to all of you. Ronnie Gurgnus is my cousin on his dads side so I know she had a wonderful funeral. God Bless. Belinda Taylor

Hi this is Kayleigh. I'm most likely the only one in the family that is writing but I'm still going to write anyways. I remember when we all went to the deep creek park and stayed out late. And then the guy working the camera thought we were loiterers and threatened to prosecute us. All of us kids thought he said " execute" and we ran for our lives ! that is just one of the many great memories we had with Mandy .Id also like to thank Graham funeral home for supporting our family . The funeral home looked beautiful even through our tears .

P.S Linda Munden and Larry Munden send their sympathy to the Pendergraf't's and Lovern on this tough time !
