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: 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.

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.

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.
Posted by Connie Hartrum on 4th February 2013
Some days, the pain of losing you feels new again. Today is one of those days. I miss you Amy.

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 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.

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.
Posted by Catalina Lehner on 27th November 2012
Amy- you are greatly missed. I'll always remember your cheerfulness and kindness. God bless. Much love to you and your family.
