The crowd who came to celebrate the life of Atlanta TV Anchor Amanda Davis was well over the 2,500 seating capacity of Cascade United Methodist Church on the southwest side.
The upbeat service was short and sweet with four powerful speakers:
Ambassador Andrew Young and his wife Carolyn gave personal remarks about Amanda’s spirit, love and ability to overcome her demon. Then commended CBS TV46 for giving a second chance by hiring her.
Paul Ossman, 25 year co-anchor with Amanda for the FOX 5 TV Morning Show, tearfully spoke fondly of her as a professional who loved her work and was easy to work with.
Melora Rivera, Amanda’s only child, bravely spoke through tears about how much she loved and will miss her mom and best friend.
This group of Atlanta’s African American TV and radio personalities came to celebrate Amanda’s life. This is yet another testament to all the love people had for this amazing woman.
The lobby of Cascade United Methodist Church after the funeral is filled with well wishers. Amanda Davis touched so many over her 62 years. She will be remembered. May she rest in peace.
