Today, May 6, 2012 at 3:15pm, our extraordinary, amazing Amy traded in her Earthly wings for Angel wings. She was in the comfort of her own home and was surrounded by loved ones. Amy fought long and hard to battle this awful disease and she handled herself with magnificent beauty and poise. She filled her home with love and laughter. She touched so many people in her own unique way with an impact that will last a lifetime. Amy will live on through each of us and though she is gone, she will never be forgotten.
As some of you may recall reading Amy’s post from May 30, 2011 – “The Miracle of Cardinal Red When I’m Blue”, several of us witnessed first hand today the miracle of her story. A beautiful, red cardinal perched himself on a branch in the tree just outside her bedroom window. Without saying a word, we knew her Dad was there to help guide her to her new journey – the next chapter in her life. Amy has been reunited with her mom and dad and many other loved ones. Our loss today is truly Heaven’s gain.
Funeral arrangements are being made and will be shared soon.
In lieu of flowers, a 529 College Education Fund has been established for Amy and Don’s son Theodore. As most of you know, education is high on Amy’s list of accomplishments. She received her Master of Arts Degree in 2008, and delivered an incredible speech to her graduating class. Amy made a difference.
