17 Condolences for Amy Nicole Collins Day
Our hearts are broken as we miss our sister in Christ. I can’t wait to worship Jesus with her again. I continue in prayer and love to her whole family-they are true soldiers of the cross. Cheri and Rich, you raised a beautiful, brave woman of God who had her own opinion but more importantly her own faith. I was honored to sit in Bible Study with her this past year and hear of her repeating the promises of God for her and her children. She loved you and often asked for prayer for you or her other siblings. She was valiant! You are each warriors of Christ and even on the rough days I will be here. Praising God for the kingdom that cannot be shaken! Heb. 12:28

When I think of Amy I think of Courage of how strong she was. She had courage to stand up for what she believed in,courage to stand up for those who couldn’t stand up for themselves,courage to be different with her ability to transform herself to a superhero because after all she truly was.I will truly miss her texts to me on Sunday nights asking me if I was watching one of our favorite shows and if I could believe what was happening and the banter of what we thought would happen next. She was a star that burned so bright almost blinding.I wish we all had more time to bask in her glow.Rest in peace dear Amy the earth lost a star but heaven gained a angel.

Our Deepest Condolences and prayers for the family of Amy Nicole Collins Day… Rev. Johnson (Missionary to Nagaland)
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one. I did not know your loved one personally but she sounded like a caring person who accomplished much. May memories of her and our Heavenly Father, who is the God of all comfort, give you the strength and comfort that you need (2 Corinthians 1:3). Our Heavenly Father understands your pain because he too has experienced the death of his beloved Son, Jesus Christ. Just as God resurrected his Son, he yearns to resurrect our lovedtie ones as well (Job 14:14,15). I hope these words give you the comfort and peace you need during this difficult time.

It seems appropriate that the day that Amy got to see the Face of God, was the first day of a spectacular 5 day meteor shower(the annual Perseids). Amy was a courageous shooting star; she leaves a long trail of light and energy.
This world has lost a Champion
Thank you for the work you have done, Amy. We will carry it forward. Enjoy the light show welcoming you Home. Rest in Peace.

Dear family and friends of Amy Day,
I only met Amy once but she made a deep and true impression on me. She came to our church in Chadds Ford, PA to speak to our justice team about the anti-trafficking work that she was so passionate about in Delaware. Amy was a woman of principle, integrity, faith and action, and clearly was in the process of making a lasting impression on her community and on issues of injustice that are so close to God’s heart. Thank you for raising and encouraging such a beautiful woman of God, and please know that she is rejoicing with Him now. I will keep you, and especially her children, in my prayers.
May God’s comfort be real and profound in your lives.
I feel great remorse … She was always dear to me but I never got to show it … She was a wonderful mother daughter sister and a cousin… She was a great role model to me … I hope I live up to her standards one day … She will always be close to my heart… I miss you Amy and hope that I may see u again one day…
Sorry for your loss
