As for the words of the song "Friends" it's hard to let you go but the fathers into the hands we know, but a life time not to long to live as friends.

Amy always greeted me with a big smile. She was kind to me from day one and I always enjoyed seeing her. About two years ago at the Colorado Funeral Directors convention we sat together at dinner and she was tons of fun. We also served together on the Colorado Funeral Directors Assocation Board. She enjoyed talking about her children. Her eyes would just light up when she spoke of them. My heart breaks for Amy and her children. The entire family and her staff at Stoddard Funeral Home are all in my thoughts.
