I was blessed to meet and get to know Amy some as she and Josie became one of our truly loved customers several years ago at my DIY pet wash. It's always heartwarming to me to listen to the pup owners talking and bonding with their dogs. Amy was one of those really special customers as you could just feel and see the love she had for Josie and Josie had for her. They both shared the biggest smiles at bath time as it was "their time" and they both brightened up my days! Amy would always reach out and let me know they were coming in, and I sooo looked forward to seeing them both. This picture and Josie's smiles surely rings true! I will greatly miss you Amy and you will forever stay in my heart!

I will miss Amy as she started out as my neighbor and became a friend. Amy was the first person to come over and welcome us to the neighborhood. I was invited to Bunco gatherings and I could tell immediately that Amy thought of others and making you feel so included. I hope Amy's Herd stays up as yesterday I went to the site, which I was honored she included me in, to hear her voice and see her happy moments of her moving to her music and keeping us all included in her journey. She was a special person to so many and I will remember her strength and courage through her battle with cancer. No more pain my friend. Rest in Peace with the Lord.

I tried to do something nice for Amy and in return she gave me the nicest gift of a Yankee Candle Heritage Rose scented. I can’t smell those roses without thinking of Amy. God Bless you Amy.
