  • Dear Family
    You are in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. I know how much you meant to Amy by how many times she would often talk lovely and humorously about her family. I have known Amy for many, many years. She was a wonderful, generous co-worker and friend. She had a great sense of humor and had a wonderful laugh. Anytime I was able to make her laugh I always felt I scored. If I made her mad I would run! I will miss her terribly and she will forever be part of my great memories of Delaware Hospice. Mary J.

    Winner Lincoln .She will be truly missed . Prayers and love to her family . ❤️

  • I still cannot believe Amy is no longer living her earthly life. A long time ago, Amy was married to my brother, who is Sara’s dad, and although I had minimal contact with her over the years I always admired her ability to move forward from what was a difficult relationship, start over with a good marriage, and raise her daughter and sons into kind and loving adults. I know they and Kevin will miss her beyond measure. I believe that Amy’s heavenly home will be filled with light and love, and that she will be watching over her family for eternity. Thank you, Amy, for being a fair and forgiving person. Diane
