Dwight, I offer my deepest condolences on the loss of Amy. She was a very sweet woman with a heart of gold. When I was a kid, she always made time to talk to me and never seemed to mind if I jumped the fence to play with your dog Sam. You and your family are in my prayers. Alan Smith

I am so sorry to hear of Amy's passing. She worked with my mother in the Elections Office and was a wonderful person. I also retired from Guilford County and had an occasion to talk to Amy. Mama thought very highly of her and could always depend on her both personally and professionally. She showed genuine concern and respect to everyone around her. She will be truly missed but she's in a much better place now.
