INDIANAPOLIS -- Organizers described Sunday's memorial service as a celebration of Amanda Blackburn. Community members gathered together to remember her -- singing songs and giving speaking about her.
In a video, her sister offered insight into Amanda's life.
“The most ironic thing about having a baby sister -- a little sister -- is you kind of feel like you have to protect them and watch out for them all the time,” Amber Wilkinson, Amanda Blackburn’s sister said. “I look up to her more than almost anybody in this whole world.”
“Trust [God] because in time, He will take this and He will turn this into a miracle,” Perry Noble of NewSpring Church said at the service.
Just days after the murder of Amanda and her unborn child, loved ones took the focus away from the violence leading to her death, and put it on the way they say she put God first in life.
“So Jesus -- I thank you, I thank you that you conquered death and because you conquered death and you lived in Amanda, she conquered death,” Noble said. “She has got her eyes focused on the King of kings And the Lord of lords."
