My heart hurts finding this out so late.. She was the greatest woman I've ever met and was a mother figure to me when mine was not. I learned so much from Amy I miss her dearly and wish I could've said goodbye or at least seen her one last time. Steve I'm deeply sorry that you've lost this wonderful woman. Y'all didnt deserve this to happen and I wish I could've been there for you both. Amy I miss and Love you very much..

My dear friend and colleague. Words cannot express the sadness that I feel. I will always remember your big smile and contagious pee in my pants laugh. I am so blessed to have crossed paths with you.

Amy, work just isn't the same since you were called home way too soon. I will miss the guaranteed belly-laughs and inside jokes. The world lost a little bit of it's twinkle the day you left us. It was a joy to witness the passion that you had for nursing and for these babies who have to fight from the start, and to see how you embrace their families like they are your own. I learned so much about nursing from you. I am so thankful for the years that I got to know you. I know we will see each other again some day. Until then, give our little heart babies some snuggles from me. I know you are up their loving on them and singing Maroon 5 songs to them. I want to offer my deepest sympathies to her family. She loved you all so much and lit up when she spoke of you. I will miss you dearly friend.

Amy, work is just not the same without you. The world lost a little bit of it's sparkle when you were called home much too soon. I will miss your sense of humor and the belly laughs that were guaranteed every time we worked together. I learned so much from you as a nurse and as a person. Thanks for listening, thanks for the endless laughs. My life has been blessed by having you in it. Though my heart is broken and you are incredibly missed, I know we will see each other again some day. Kiss all of our fallen heart warriors for me and hold them close. I know you already are. My deepest sympathies to Amy's family. She lit up when she spoke of you. Goodbye sweet friend.

Words cannot describe; nor could I take up this space; to entail all of the wonderful memories; this great soul; gave me! She taught me so much; we had so many great times! A vibrant, wonderful soul - gone from this earth; far too soon! I don't blame God and Heaven; for needing her! I will love her forever, and miss her longer - see you again one day, my friend!

Amy, words cannot express how much I miss you already. I will always remember all your silly antics on the night shift. No matter how busy we were you would always do or say something to make us laugh. You were taken away from us way too fast, too soon. You were an awesome nurse and colleague. You will always be remembered in our hearts. Yes I want you to make your $80 dip. Miss you friend.

Missing someone isn't about how long it's been since you've seen them, or the amount of time its been since you've talked. It's about that smiling face, and the cheerful pleasant ways that she won so many friends. Its a life made beautiful by kindly deeds, and a helpful hand for others needs. Such a beautiful life comes a bitter sweet end, she died as she lived as everyone friend.
Forever in my heart, I love you!

As a nurse right out of school I went to the cardiac ICU where Amy helped me become the nurse I am today. Her smile, her carefree attitude, her knowledge of the practice will never be forgotten. I will miss her more than words can say and thank her for the extra ray of light she brought into my life. Life is short, sometimes to short. She is gone from us phsically but her memory and good deeds will last forever.
