To Amy's friends and family: I know our words may not quell the grief you're experiencing, but I hope you can find some comfort knowing how much of a powerful impact she made on so many lives. Amy's smile is forever burned in our minds . . . serves as a good reminder to speak up for those who have been minoritized and marginalized and to love as hard as your spirits allow. Amy's light shone so brightly; I know she'll continue to inspire and she won't be forgotten. My heart is with you all as you grieve.

Amy was just, so bright. Her smile, her laugh, her personality. When you talked to her, you felt like the most important thing in the world. She only wanted the best for everyone, such a loving soul. To her family, thank you for sharing her with us. I will always remember her and cherish the memories and the countless laughs we shared.

I met Amy in 2010 after my world had been turned upside down by personal tragedy, and I was just a shell of myself. Amy saw I needed a friend, and she really helped bring back to life. She had a way of making those around her feel seen, included, valued for their uniqueness and idiosyncrasies. Her sense of humor was second to none. Her passionate advocacy inspired me and helped shape me personally and professionally. I want to offer my most heartfelt condolences to Amy's family - and I want you to know how much she meant to me and to so many others. She was a bright light and I am so grateful to have been lucky enough to know her.

I wanted to send my sincere condolences and share a few words. Truth is, I don’t know much by way of churches or funeral homes. I always thought the outdoors are God’s greatest cathedral where one might venture out in an effort to look in. Which, perhaps, is why on this day I found myself walking outside beside a river, in the snow, when my thoughts naturally found their way to Amy. There was nothing ever subtle about Amy. Striking wit, voice, laughter and smile. She wore many emotions on her sleeve along with some beautiful ink. To me, that’s just who she is. I knew Amy from a brief snapshot of time when attending nursing school and thereafter as she helped me secure my first job. She is a true badass—doesn’t mince her words—and has the conviction and passion to do whatever is necessary for the best outcome of her patients and her friends. With the outpouring of love it’s clear that those who have known her feel a devastating loss…collectively shedding ribbons of tears that now link into rivers providing exposure to depths which would otherwise go unseen. The tapestry they paint are a marvel for good reason—one may only think of the Grand Canyon to take in the full effect. Yet some grief, like a river, is so expansive that it can not be waded across but rather walked beside. So, I’ll walk beside this for now and remember the incredible spirit of the person who is a reprieve to many—patients, family and friends alike; has the fortitude not to take shit from anyone; and who embodies a love which will ricochet in the chasms of our hearts a little longer than always. You are missed but not forgotten, Amy.

Close to a year ago I experienced the death of a young patient during the Pandemic. I felt awful and was riddled with everything that went wrong during that situation. Amy gave me a hug and reminded me that I did everything I could for the patient--her support helped me cope with that patient's death. I will miss Amy and will always carry these beautiful memories with me.

Amy’s incredible beautiful smile will always be burned in my mind. She was always the warmest, friendliest, funnest girl around - not to mention her great style. She deserved many more years and there is no condolence for this loss. I will treasure her memory and be richer for having known her.

I am so sorry for your loss and all of our loss. Amy was such a bright light. We met thru Shriners on our weekly visits for our son Gabriel's infusions. We all laughed so much together making our time much more enjoyable. She had a way with kiddos and was easily one of our sons favorite nurses. We are so devestated we will never see you again. But we will always remember your smile and beautiful soul.

My son and I got the chance to know Amy over the last two years at the hospital during our visits. She always was willing to talk to Jacob about Anime and always had treats for Dapple. I am so very sorry for your loss and she will be greatly missed by everyone who met her.

To Amy's friends and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know Amy very well, but liked her immediately. She was such a great nurse and her patients were lucky to have her. She was the kind of person you wanted to be around and I wish I had gotten to work with her more than I did.

To Amy's family and those closest to her, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Amy was brilliant, beautiful, and an absolute joy to work with here at Shriners. She had a precious way with hospitalized children and was consistently able and willing to put herself in someone else's shoes. I will miss seeing her beautiful face and sunny smile.
