    I have known Amy for many years though Ray Apking. 
    I don't think there are words that can describe how wonderful Amy has always been. She will not be forgotten. Much love to her and all that have had the privilege to be her friends. T

    I met Amy many years ago when Ray moved in next door to me.  Amy was awesome.  We had many great conversations hanging out in the yard.  On garage sale day I'd always stop by and hang out with her, always a fun time watching people look for those deals.  Over the years both Ray and Amy became like family to me, always there for me, always willing to help.  When my big sister was battling cancer, Amy really helped me through that difficult time.  Even though she was in a battle herself, she always kept such a positive attitude and that really inspired me.  No matter what she was going through, she was always more concerned about others and their well being.  I now always try to stay positive when times are dark and keep searching for that positive light, that's what I learned from Amy.  I was always a big fan of Amy's art and she helped me with my own art with tips and suggestions to be even better.  I have a piece of her's on my family room wall, I love it and I will always keep it close to me.  It's a painting of the sea with waves crashing down onto each other, it's amazing.  Amy was one of the strongest people I've ever met, a fighter. I'm really gonna miss her.  I will always try to stay positive no matter what life throws at me, I'll remember those lessons I learned from her.  I know one day we'll meet again, until then rest in peace Amy, hopefully heaven is like a beach and you're enjoying the sound of the waves coming in crashing on the shore.

    Amy, I don't know what to say.

    It's been over forty years since we last saw each other, since we last spoke.  Back then, we didn't have a care in the world other than riding our big wheels up and down the sidewalk on 17th Street.  Maybe even teasing Tony Bologna (down the street) a bit... ok, I got into trouble for that, but it turned out ok.

    I literally just found out a year or so later, of your passing.  Despite the years that passed, or the distance, or the communication that was lost, I will miss you.  I hope your last days here were pain-free and restful for you; I so dearly wish I had known.  I would have rushed to hold your hand and comfort you just one last time before you left us."

    Rest in peace, Amy.  I loved you then, and I love you now.  We *will* meet again.
