I am very sorry to hear that Amy passed away. She was always smiling and a good friend when we were at Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church before Tony & I moved away for Tony's first appointment into the ministry. Her grandpa Cloyd was my dad's first cousin. May God bless her family and bring comfort and peace that only God can give. Our thoughts & prayers will be with you in the coming days. --Carol Fox Bowman
