Since I moved from Las Vegas to Phoenix I lost touch with Amy.  We had been very good friends.  I just heard today from a mutual friend of the tragic loss of Amy.  I am so sorry to hear about this - she was so beautiful inside and out and had such a wonderful sense of humor - I admired her for her success at Bureau of Reclamation.   I am so sorry that I did not know sooner but please accept this as my sincerest wish for your healing to continue."
