I was also part of the small group of co-workers who shared breakfast with Amy after a sometimes long overnight shift at St. Mary's. She was sweet and funny and always had a kind word. My heart goes out to her family.

My deepest sympathies to the family and my prayers are with you.
I worked with Amy on third shift at St. Mary's Hospital. There was a group of us who would go to each others homes for breakfast and whenever it was Amy's turn we always had a fantastic time. She was a wonderful person and will be missed by all.
