Most of my adult life I knew Amy as "Ban Sim". She has always shown her kindness and generosity to our family especially after our mother passed away to my dad known as Yee Bok or Willie. She always invited him for dinner and mahjong at her house and she would let up know when we came into town she would make the dough ball soup that Don liked. She joined us one weekend when we planned a "won ton" party for the Lunar New Year for co workers of Vivian and some friends from Phoenix and she was very happy to show the guest on how to fold wontons for the soup we were making. I remember that we had the best seat in the house for the rodeo parades each year as we had "front" row seats at the store. She will be missed by our family and her kindness will be warmly missed by us kids.
In loving memory

My fondest memories of you takes me back to my youth years spending my summers in Yuma. So many "Ah Ha" memories filled my mind as my thoughts were thinking of you... My brothers and I loved working and playing around Hom's Market. I had fun stocking the shelves, helping you bag groceries after a sale, and working the cash register. I loved reading the comic and movie star magazines to my heart's content and with your constant encouragement enjoyed eating and drinking your store inventory. I cherished our little excursions walking to the Downtown...stopping off at Penny's to cool off and grabbing a cold drink from Kress. Loved your delicious meals with family and friends. Your kind, caring, loving and generous attitude described you to a tee. I will always cherish our heartfelt conversations and you will forever be in my heart.

Love and miss you MS Amy💕

I still have fond memories of the many summers I spent as a child visiting Aunt Amy and Uncle Frank. I will remember how Aunt Amy was always offering me soda, ice cream, and candy . I used to drink a six pack of soda everyday during those summers in Yuma. Aunt Amy wanted to make sure that I was never hungry or thirsty. Even though Aunt Amy is gone, I will always have and cherish my memories of her..
