Amy, long time friend of our family, her family and my family have been friends since WWII. Grew up with her and Spencer's children, Jack, Frank, and Sissy, on the famous one mile around Rainbow Circle. Great neighborhood for kids at the time. Amy will be remembered in many Wonderful Ways. God said, " Amy Job Well Done ".... With Love and Prayers to All, Thom ( Tommy ) Moore....

What a dynamic woman heaven has gained. I can only imagine that Aunt Amy and Uncle Jack's heavenly reunion is wonderful! She was the last to join her other siblings that went on before her. May God comfort her entire family at this time. Love to all, Marsha
