One of my favorite memories is when Amy and I took a road trip to visit Grandma Cora. We laughed the whole time!! 🤣 Amy has touched so many lives and will be deeply missed by all. Continued prayers for her family for healing and that they will keep all of the beautiful happy memories close to their hearts ♥️

There's just not enough words I can say about Amy. We worked together all those years ago at the hospital pharmacy. We both had a unique sense of humor, and Amy had a smile that would light up a room. I left in 1998, and although we didn't see each other often, each time we did, it was like we just saw each other yesterday. In 2016, I was thinking about getting back into pharmacy and Amy said "Don't worry, I got you." and delivered me a pharmacy calculations cd. I was proud to know her, work with her and call her my friend. My sympathy to her entire family, and friends.
