I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I am that Amy’s time came so soon.I also remember all the fun times our families spent together; meals shared, coion, hunts, and many other activities together. What a beautiful sweet girl Amy was and all because of she had beautiful sweet parents whom taught her to be that way. We love you all so much and will be praying for peace and comfort. Remember, this is not the end! As Angie told me the other day, “ God is in Control”! Love, Erika and Sean White
