I never got the chance to meet this lady in person but. I met her in Farmville 2 app. She was so precious and very encouraging! Absolutely the sweetest! I spoke to her a few times on the phone and many others through the game and Facebook. She will be missed by many! My condolences and prayers for her friends, and family during this time!

My deapest sympathy to you and your family Amy. I knew your mother when I lived in Jacksonville 1990-2005. She was a kind and loving friend. She spoke of you and your children as a very devoted mother & grandmother. I will send my prayers this Sunday at my local Catholic Church in Waynesville NC. 💕😢

I fondly remember Laura and the times she came to term nursery to help teach the new moms. I am so glad to have continued as one of her face book friends. I offer my deepest condolences to Amy and family at their sorrowful loss.
