I've only had the pleasure of knowing for four years but wow what a journey. I am so grateful for our moments. For the times I was lucky enough to have your light shine on me. You were more than a friend . You were a soul mate.
Amy, you have brought such joy to many peoples lives. Your bubbly personality you had always brought many laughs. I remember skipping school my first time in 6th grade, I was waiting for the bus at the bus stop in front of your apartment in whetstone and you yelled to me from your window that you had chicken pox and wouldn't be going to school ..me and you hung out that day and I remember having so many laughs. We lost touch over the years as we grew up and met new friends but we always reconnected thanks to social media. I watched you speak of your struggle with your alcohol addiction and was always proud of of for admitting you needed help and getting help, but that demon always came back. I'm sorry. Your family your friends have lost a wonderful person and you will always be loved and always be missed. You are now with your mother. R.I.P Amy Sue
Oh Amy! You will be missed. I will do all I can to be there for Gwyn, Joanie and Sarah. Praying you have found your peace with your Mumsie!
Amy and I were friends and co-workers at ALS some twenty years ago. With our family obligations and work, we lost touch for a while. We recently rekindled our friendship. Our plans for girl's trips after covid won't happen and this is disappointing. She wanted so badly to turn her life around so she could be a great mother to her daughter, who she loved so very much.
Her leaving us is a tragedy. She was compassionate and loving, with much more living to do. I enjoyed our time together and conversations, she was fun and funny, beautiful inside and out. I am so going to miss you Amy.
I want her loved ones to know, despite the turbulent times, she loved you and wanted to be better for you. She isn't far away, I imagine she's looking down, wanting to hug and hold and reassure us that she is no longer in pain. Gonna miss you, Amy Sue.
