Amber, we just spoke a few months ago.. About our husbands, kids & life outside the military.. you’re so good with advice and giving hope where needed. You didn’t know this, but the advice you gave me.. changed a lot for us, it gave us hope! Thank you amber.
I remember when we met! We arrived at our first base, you were pregnant w Chloe and pat was deployed. You were one of our first friends at Laughlin. We had some good times that we will always cherish! Thank you for being a sweet soul, great friend and always giving! You’ll be missed so much 💜

I pray that this family puts their arms around one another and holds them very tight. There is so much sadness in this family they definitely had their share. Please watch over all of them and keep them close and allow them to lean on one another thry these horrible times. And know that I always will be there for each and everyone of you if you need me and that goes for each and everyone of you including you young man Patrick. You’re going to need all kinds of love and assistance for Chloe and Tyler. So remember if there’s anything I can ever do don’t hesitate to ask and I love each and everyone of you very much

Our dear sweet Amber, I have so many memories of you from kindergarten through adulthood. You were like a second daughter to me. You were always at my house sharing food, clothes, concerts, and friends with my Sarah. I sit here and recall your first concert I took you and Sarah where NSync performed and taking you along with a carload of girls to Backstreet Boys. I recall YOU locking the keys in my car at that concert in Kansas! We still had a great time!
The memories of girl scout meetings and all of the trips we took, all of the sleepovers, and all of the trading of clothes between you and Sarah. I sold you and Patrick your first house and sold that house for you to move to Texas! You have always been a part of my life!
Thank you our sweet Amber for sharing your life, your husband, and your children with us. Know you have many family members and friends that will always look after them. This is such a beautiful family.
Amber, you will be missed more than you would have ever thought possible. You left a mark on all that you have touched. We love you soooo very much.
You will always live in our hearts!
