Amy is one of the most amazing people that I have ever had the privilege to know. She was so kind. Always. She had such a gentle spirit and always had a smile on her face. Anyone that knew her knew that she was a special person. She had such a beautiful heart. She was a light. I know that she is with the Lord now and has been fully restored. I know her spirit and kindness will live on through her precious boys. Michael, God bless you and those sweet boys. May he wrap you tightly in his arms through this hard time. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Jerry, Glenda, Michael when Jamie died Jerry, You and Amy came to Texarkana to be with and support Beth and myself . Jerry, you were the rock that Beth leaned on and sweet Amy was what kept me sane and holding it together. It wasn’t anything particular that she said, it was the way she said things. I’ve never told anyone this. The way she smiled and held my arm and looked at me, you could actually physically feel the love she had for people and that quality totally calmed me down and got me through that terrible ordeal. After all that I thanked God for her every day. I know we didn’t see her very often but we thought of her every day and will miss her. We love you all, JERRY, GLENDA, HAILEY, and MICHAEL. We are so very sorry for your loss and are praying for peace of mind for you all....

Mr. Jerry, Mrs. Glenda, Haley, I am sincerely sorry for your loss. You are all in my prayers. From the time I first met her, I noticed right away how sweet and kind hearted she was and we became friends quickly. I haven't seen her in quite some years, but one memory always stays with me. When we were in our early teenage years, we were riding that old blue fourwheeler yall had around yalls house and we made a wet spot in the yard into a mud hole. We both got a in a little trouble by Mr. Jerry. She was such a fun person to be around.

Amy and I started Greenwood the same year back in 9th grade. She was the very next stop on the bus after my house. We became friends and were in band together for years. Michael, I'm sorry for your loss but she's in heaven. Not a doubt in my mind.
