What a wonderful woman she was, my mom's first friend and her BFF when we moved to Michigan in 1970. Blessed to share Amy's mom as my extra mom too! Praying for the family for cherished memories blessing their hearts! May the days ahead, you feel God's arms around you and the continued rainbows of God's signs, Amy!
