I am so sorry to hear this heartbreaking news. I love your family and think of you all the time. Your mom was such an amazing woman. Wisdom she shared with me has stayed with me and helped me through some very dark times. She was there to encourage me when I was struggling with my marriage as well as to celebrate with me when we welcomed our second daughter into this world. Zoie loved her “Aunt Amy”. She always made her feel so special. Zoie knew right where Aunt Amy kept Zoie’s special treats and Zoie would help herself to that cupboard frequently! I loved watching Amy interact with Zoie and seeing what an amazing Grammy she would one day be. So thankful she was able to meet and enjoy her 2 grandsons. I know they must have been the highlight of her life! You guys were my favorite part of Henderson, NC. Though it was a short time, it was so impactful to me and my family. I am so thankful to have known this amazing woman and was blessed to share life with her and her incredible daughters. I’ll be praying that God surrounds all of you with his loving arms of comfort and peace during this very difficult season. Love you and miss you❤️

I was saddened to hear of Amy's death just today. I graduated high school with her and I so remember her wonderful smile and personality. She was a wonderful person back then as she was now. Always could count on Amy to see the brighter things in life. Her smile, her spirit, and her presence will be missed by everyone who knew her. My deepest condolences to her family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I'm still in shock and can hardly believe she's gone. She had a smile that would light up the day's, even if was pouring rain. She had a a very warming personality that made you feel like she had known you all your life. You girls, the rest of your family and her many friends will be in our thoughts and prayers. We know we will see her again so we take comfort from this. Keep her memories alive. They will help you make it through the very hard days.

Words will never Express what I feel right now but the comfort is knowing that Amy loved the Lord. I will miss her calling at the end of the day asking to send a student to the office to go home. Family, stay strong in the Lord and the power of His might. Praying for you all!

This has come as such a shock to me. However, I take joy in knowing that Amy is with our Heavenly Father! In the time she has been back with us at Dabney, I have seen such a change in her! She was always keeping us laughing! You had to know her to truly love her ! She would ask me from time to time questions about my religion and faith. I am glad I got to see her and talk to her before I left work Thursday. She would always say “Okay, bye sweetie!” or “love you girl!” when I left the office ! I will miss you so much “my sista” (Amy knows)!
