Amy will be sorely missed. She was a lovely woman who loved her children. She was a darn good cook too. Whenever I visited with her mother, she always had something delicious to serve. Amy was a good FaceBook friend to me also as the travel distance between us was great. I will never forget visiting when her kids were a lot smaller and tucking those little angels in bed with good night stories. I know they will continue in their lives to make their mother proud of the children she raised. You will be very missed, Amy.
Words are not easy to find any time a parent loses a child.Children are just supposed to out live their parents.So sorry for the loss of loved one to all of Amy’s family,may she rest in peace.
Pat, Erin, Daniel and Dana we offer our heartfelt condolences to you during this very difficult time, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Ed & Bertha Tollefson, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

Mrs Merrill, Joe told me what happened and I was extremely saddened. Eventhough I haven’t spoken to Amy in many years, I still thought about her often. She will always have a special place in my heart!!
