    We are so very sorry for your loss. There are no words to express a tragedy such as this. Please accept our sincere condolences. Amy contacted me for some advice on a school project in December. She seemed to be heading in the right direction with her life.

    We know this is a difficult time and especially today, Wednesday is going to be extremely hard. God has taken Amy home to be with Him as His artist and crafts person because He needed the beauty that Amy could bring to His kingdom with not only her own beauty but that of her skill to be creative.

    Our love and kindness are with you today as I pray for your peace and for God to help all of you through this difficult time of letting go. Amy will always be with you no matter what you do even in the littlest thing.

    God’s peace and love be with you.

    Nancy & Craig
