To Amy's loving family....
My heart is so sad. Our family was devistated to hear the terrible news. It still doesn't feel true that Amy is gone. On the day I heard about the accident and even now i can see her little girl face. She was such a sweet little girl with lots of laughs and giggles. At school she was the highlight of my day. She turned into a beautiful lady and Mother. The pictures of her girls look just like there mom.
I can't imagine how the family is handeling all of it.
Praise God she is in his arms now. I'm gonna look her up when I get there. Love to all. Betty Salyer
Cannot imagine what you are going through praying for the days ahead. I will always remember our days at Northside Church and the good singing from your family.
Jim, praying for you and your daughters in the wake of this tragic loss. Hebrews 13:2, brother. May His faithfulness and wisdom bolster you and comfort you all in the weeks, months and years ahead. ~ Jean Keeley (Grace Community Church)
Feeling wordless. Not sure "so sorry" eases any amount of pain. I have only ever seen your family a few times briefly... although I always wished for more. Just know that Amy had a way of making an eternal dent on my heart. She was real about life and that's what made her a complete and total PEOPLE MAGNET!! Anxiously awaiting heaven so much more now.
Tears and prayers, Laura (Hager) Jensen
Amy was a 5 yr old in my K5 Sunday School Class. She was a joy to teach. She noticed my purse needed updating and so had her mother buy me a new one for my birthday. I was so touched by her kindness. She had such a generosity of spirit which lives on in the hearts of her precious daughters. She will be fondly remembered with much love.
I am so sorry for your loss. My heart aches for your family. Praying that God's arms of love and grace will be around you at this time. Maude (Landry) Liga, Kankakee, IL
