Dearest Amy, beloved “Cuz”, we were fortunate to have so many adventures together! From Mexico to Louisville to Pennsylvania to Times Square, loving and laughing all the way. You are a beautiful friend, teacher, devoted daughter, mother, and our dear Cuz. Te queremos, hermana, and you will be with us always.

My dear, loving niece Amy will be truly missed.
Her spirit and gumption were undeniable in the most positive way and set an admirable example for those around her.
She took life as it came, never complained, fought the good fight and made the best of every opportunity; unique unto herself.
God bless you Amy. I will proudly wear the Louisville Cardinals gear you sent my way on game days!

When my husband and I got married,two foreigners in the USA. We had a small budget for our wedding. Thankfully we had the love and support of our adoptive family, The Alsups.
They helped us with various details about the wedding. Amy was kind to be our videographer. She was able to capture memories of that special day that we can share now with our kids and relatives. Keep in mind that in the late 90’s Beta camcorders were huge, and you have to carry them on your shoulders! I have and will always be thankful for her kindness and for all the love of the Alsup family.
Ah! Amy also lead the group on the “Macarena” dance at the reception 22 years ago.

I met Amy when we were both 16 years old. I thought she was funny, sincere, kind to a fault, had a wonderful faith in Jesus Christ and I really liked her. Nothing ever happened to change my opinion of her. After she and Ron split I missed her terribly. I still remember our last conversation after my wedding to Mark. She said, "Jesus is." I asked, "Jesus is what?" She replied, "When you find the answer, you have everything you will ever need." It took me 12 years. I finally figured out what she was telling me. "Jesus is." Period. End of discussion. He is the Alef and the Tov (Hebrew) Alpha and Omega (Greek). He is. Shortly after I figured it out, I started to write. She was the one who jump-started my writing career. So glad the last time I saw her, I got to thank her. Love and prayers to her sweet family --Deborah Aubrey-Peyron, author of 20 books, including the Miraculous Interventions series, two of which were approved for the Vatican Library in Rome, Italy under Pope Benedict XVI.

We are going to miss our little Cuz. While not tall of stature, she had a huge heart and incredible spirit. She was funny and passionate, and really feisty. She loved traveling and quirky things - like Pokemon and her zip code. Her family was her center, her love was strong, especially for her children Josh & Ceara, and Peanut. She was a huge energy - amazing us all with her spunk, determination, and positivity as she held her cancer at bay FAR longer than anyone could have thought, giving us extra years we appreciated. You fought hard, Amy, you fought well. Rest in peace, little Cuz.

Amy was an amazing woman, I knew her through her daughter Ceara and feel unbelievably lucky to have known her. She was incredibly kind and understanding and accepting. She was the first “adult” in my life to fully accept me unequivocally with no question and offered me help at a time in need and I’m forever grateful for her for that. I loved her and know that she’s at peace. My condolences to her family
