Haha I had no idea making Jess a cheese toastie (without asking if she wanted one) would have me declared "the best mummy in the world" yeah right for 2 minutes maybe — feeling amused. [ And she was, the best mummy in the world]

A Celebration of the life of Amanda Tiernan

From Amanda's Daughter Victoria Lucy Tiernan

I just wanted to let everyone know that our family has arranged flowers for my mum but, we know that she'd love donations to be made to the Royal British Legion in her honour, thank you! X




From Kelly Tiernan‎

This is so something you would say, tell us all to pull ourselves together & get on with it. It's too hard to do without you pushing us along. Could really do with some of your straight talking advice right now.

Sleep tight Princess Tiernan xx xx




Just some of many comments for Amanda our friend ...

From Grace Hunter

So sad and shocked to hear of the passing of a beautiful ,loving and inspirational young lady Amanda Tiernan ,who was not just a friend to our troops but also our Veterans, if there was a funeral to attend where there were no family for that Vet Amanda would be the first one to post and share to get as many people as she could to attend, she was also one of the many people who stood with the mourners at Wootton Bassett on many occasions and you were sure to bump into her at the many Parades, so god you have not just gained an Angel you have gained a great Warrior with a mighty big heart and spirit , so please look after her for us as she is going to be so missed here. My deepest sympathy and prayers goes to her Dad she was a daughter to be proud of a Para's Daughter through and through and to her young family to whom she was a fantastic Mum, sleep tight my friend you will always be here in our hearts and thoughts

Geoff Butler

R.I.P to one of the scariest/ballsy lasses I've ever met. When I heard my thoughts turned to the drinks we all had for Zig, how we'd not seen or heard from one another for 15 plus years, yet those 15 years may as will’ve been 15 mins to you. Top lass, top banter, going to be missed.

Kenneth Bowles

So shocked to hear about Amanda, will miss her on social media as will all the forces. Heaven has another Angel today who will watch over all her friends and family. So, so sorry for the family god bless you all.

June Emily Morgan

I'm so shocked and saddened to learn of your passing Amanda my dear friend I still can't believe it I'd like to pass on my condolences to your family and friends Rest in peace lovely lady God bless you I'll miss you XX.

Friendship ......

Like music heard on the waters,
Like pines when the wind passeth by,
Like pearls in the depths of the ocean,
Like stars that enamel the sky,
Like June and the odor of roses,
Like dew and the freshness of morn,
Like sunshine that Kisseth the clover,
Like tassels of silk on the corn,
Like mountains that arch the blue heavens,
Like clouds when the sun dippeth low,
Like songs of birds in the forest,
Like brooks where the sweet waters flow,
Like dreams of Arcadian pleasures,
Like colors that gratefully blend,
Like everything breathing of Kindness. .....
Like these is the love of a Friend.

So sorry to hear about Amanda, deepest sympathy to all her Family. She knew my Dad, that's how I knew her. Her love and support for the Parachute Regiment was amazing. Rest in peace and party with the paras in heaven.

Kerry Gardner‎

Rest in Peace Amanda. My thoughts are with your children and your dad. I can't believe you've gone, so shocked and sad.

If tears could build a stairwell and memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken no time to say good-bye .
You were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness, and secret tears still flow.
What it means to lose you, no one will ever know.



Amanda July 2014 in London doing what she does best,
being beside and supporting her beloved Para's


Amanda's dog ... she called him "Reg" after her Airborne soldiers.
