Never Forgotten…We miss you AMY!

6 05 2016

There are no words to express how much Amy is missed.  Each of us grieve in our own ways but we are one when it comes to missing her and wishing just one more time to hear her adorable laugh and sense of humor, see her infectious smile and read her uplifting and incredible words.  Amy loved more than anything to be with people, share her stories with others and listened with a kind and loving heart.  Her adorable son Theodore was her world and she loved being a mom. She also loved being a wife to Don and little sister to Julie and Lisa. While each of us will take a moment today to reflect on what Amy meant to us in our own lives, her passion for life and living it to the fullest keeps many of going forward each and every day.

Our dear sweet angel Amy, we remember…

stairway to heaven

If I could visit heaven
even for a day
Maybe for a moment
my pain would go away
I’d put my arms around you
and whisper words so true
That living life without you
sure is hell to do
No matter how I spend my days
no matter what I do
No morning dawns or evening falls
When I don’t think of you.

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

And the beautiful Cardinal has been a regular visitor at my bird feeder these past few days. Always remembered my dear Amy. 💖💖
