    All of my best high school memories include Amy. She was one of the most fun people I have ever known, always up for an adventure. One of my favorite things to do in high school was hang out with Amy while she worked. She was such a hard worker. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. I loved Amy. Her light shined brighter than anyone.

    I was so very saddened to hear about Amy, we were close in High School. I loved her dearly and was glad to be reunited with her through Facebook. I live in Nevada now and was not able to attend her celebration of life today. I wish so much that I could have been there. She will forever be in my heart and never forgotten. Rest In Peace my dear friend. Praying for all of Amy’s loved ones. May Gods peace and love bring healing to your hearts and strength to get through the days ahead. ❤✝️🙏🏻
