    Amy and I were in kindergarten class at Marshall Rd Baptist, on drill team together and graduated from JHS in 1984. She was kind to everyone and had the most fabulous smile. Prayers for comfort and peace for her family.

    Amy was one of the first friends I made in 1971 when we moved to Jacksonville. She was always an amazing spirit and I cherished our friendship.

    I knew Amy from school, but really became good friends over the last few years. I will always remember each and every moment that we shared whether it was sitting in the living room talking or the night that we went to the journey concert together.
    Amy smile and laugh will live on and all of our hearts.
