|I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music. - George Eliot|
"Dear Amy....Happy Birthday, I miss your laughter. And your great intellect."
"Dear Amy, I am devastated to find out about your passing. I am sorry that we lost touch over the years. Please know that you were a very important part of my childhood, along with Becky and Connie. I am praying for both you and your family. With much love and respect...."
"Happy Birthday dear Amy.."
"Dear Amy: Thinking of you and your cheerful, energetic ways. I'm so glad I got to know you when we worked in Planning in the 1980s and for your friendship over the years. Rest in Peace."
"Hello Amy, I just wanted to wish you a happy belated birthday. I really miss you."
"My Dear Sweet Amy: I want to say that I will really miss your smile, your friendship and your sense of humor. I always looked up to you as a co-worker and a boss, I learned a lot from you when I was working at the Bureau of Reclamation. You are with your Lord and Savior and singing all of the beautiful songs that you wrote on earth. May the Lord be with you Becky, Connie and Nancy and Amy Dad (don't remember your name). God's Peace be with each of her family members and may his loving spirit surround each one of you."
"To the Porter Family -
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."
"Amy...thanks for being a part of my life! I know you are in the joy of the Lord! Rest in peace...beautiful Amy! Psalms 30:5 – Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning."
"Happy 44th Birthday, Amy. I miss you SOOOOOOOO much and wish I could give you a big birthday hug. I miss your laugh and sense of humor...and mostly, how much you really loved me. I am squeezing the SHIT out of you today...I hope you can feel it. We are bringing you home today for your birthday...I will see you. Love, Benny"
"I just found out today that you have left us on this earth. I've been thinking about you all day and how you were one of the few people who were always nice to me growing up. I will always remember you for that. Thank you! I hope you find the peace you need. May the angels wrap their arms around you and help you feel the love that you always showed to others."
"Sweet child of mine, you've left me with the dubious task of going through all your mortal possessions. Each one brings back a memory: some good, some great, some happy, some sad. If I had a place to keep them all, I would. However, being unable to do that, instead I am left with a lifetime of memories. What I wouldn't give to hold you just one more time! The pain of your leaving goes on."
"Some days, the pain of losing you feels new again. Today is one of those days. I miss you Amy."
"Amy....miss you and love you.
We are just walking EACH OTHER home.
"Amy, I met you @ Becky's you made a lot of people laugh your smile will never be forgotten! Some day we will cross paths again...xxx"
"My dear Amy, I can hardly think of any words to say, other than I miss you. I can still picture when I first met you nearly 24 years ago. Your humor, kindness, and gentleness were immediately evident. I knew then you would be a life long friend. I am forever blessed to have been your friend. My heart goes out to your family and all who love you and miss you as I do. Rest in peace sweet Amy"
"Amy always brought a smile to myself and our office staff. She will be missed and our thoughts and prayers are with her family."
"No matter how much time has passed between our visits, when we speak, we pick right up where we left off. Your kind and generous spirit shines brightly in my life. Thank you for coming into my life and sharing your special spirit with me. Your laughter will always echo in my laughter forever. Rest in peace my friend."
"All our talks, all our laughs, all our hard work. Amy, you were a sister in my heart and I'm sad we won't be laughing again together. I hope you find peace and I'll never forget you."
"Dick, Nancy and girls, our hearts are broken. So, so sorry to hear of your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We love you all very much!
The families of Dale, Rachelle, Randy, and Rodney DePriest"
"Amy, I remember so many wonderful work related trips. Lots of work but lots of laughter too. I will miss you."
"Amy - you will always be in my heart"
"Amy, though our encounters were few, you made each one impressionable. You are a reminder that everyone we meet on our path in life makes a difference...thank you."
"Amy, you were always my special connection with Jean and I will always be forever greatful for this. You were the special smile that always made everyone love you and want to have you as a mentor or someone they weren't afraid to ask help from. Now you are in heaven watching over all of us and you will be forever missed by all of us who loved you and your kindness."
"I am so saddened by your passing sweet Amy. I've loved you and your family for many years and my thoughts and prayers are with them. Heaven has another Angel. Rest in peace."

My friend I love you so much don't know how to say goodbye ! So until we meet again ! xoxo"
My friend, your passing fills my heart with sadness. I'm so glad we reconnected these past few years. I have many fond childhood memories of you, including your music. Your song expresses your beautiful artist's heart and brings me tears. Sing with the angels, sweet Amy!"
"It has many years since we last saw Amy. We remember she always seemed to be laughing and had a wonderful sense of humor. Our thoughts and prayers are with our good friends, Dick and Nancy, and all of the Porter family."

Thank you for being a part of our lives.......Rest In Heaven"
"Amy sat next to me at many Diversity Team meetings and I admired the passion she had in her heart for what she believed in. I didn't know she played the piano but the music in her soul was evident. May knowing how many people admired, enjoyed and will now miss Amy help her family and friends at this very sad time. This tribute page is beautifully done - surely a comfort to many."
"Amy, I will miss you. May your family find comfort in the loving memories you have given them. Rest in peace"
"Amy: thank you for everything you did for me and my family. Rest in peace."

"Amy, my friend, my co-worker, my mentor!!! I will miss you so much I can't even describe the pain. I will miss our trips to Casa Flores for Mexican Pizza, our seaches for the latest handbag and our special talks. I hope you can now find the peace you were seaching for. I love you and will miss you forever."
"Gone too soon. I think of the poem "The Dash". Especially the part that says the dash presents all the time you spent on earth and only those who loved you know what that little line is worth.
This is written by Linda Ellis. You will be missed, I hope you will find peace at last."

"I don't have the words to describe the pain or the hole in my heart that cannot be repaired. Sweet child of mine, you were a gift from God, and I am indeed grateful to have been given the privilege of being your mother for these last 43 years. I can only imagine the despair and pain you must have felt in your search for peace. May you find it now in the arms of a loving creator. xoxoxo"

her music. She was so talented. Our hearts break for her family.
God bless them."
"Amy, may you rest in peace. I'm shaken by the news of your passing - much too soon. We grew up together as neighbors running in the golf course sprinklers on hot summer nights and overnights in your parents' RV. Good memories that I'll hold on to... Goodbye, my friend."
"Oh Amy, i can't believe this. If I know nothing else, I know Shannon was there waiting for you. I'm sure she will show you which rules are breakable and which ones are set in stone. Tell her I love her and I miss you both unbelievably. The world is a much dimmer place without you."
