and she drew people to her. She brought joy, humor, and fun everywhere she went, and she
was a tireless support to friends.
Amy cherished her many pets through the years, and loved animals of all kinds. She liked
rigorous swimming, watching football, cooking with friends, home projects, following politics
(she was a Democratic patriot), playing crossword puzzles and the occasional game of poker.
Most of all, she loved her friends and family.
Amy is terribly missed by all who love her.
