Amy, I am so sad and am just dumbfounded. I have thought about you every minute of everyday since I got the news from Jennie. I still have your texts and emails with pics of our kids as you & Alan watched my boys over the summer as I started back to work. I'm sure you are up in heaven in awe of all the outpouring of love. Your Triangle Mommies will take care of your heart, Elizabeth & Sam. We will smother them with love for you. They will play with my boys again and we will try to keep everything as "normal" as possible. I will miss your sassy attitude and the banter you and I had. I inherited a changing pad from you that you used with Carmine over the summer. My heart honestly gets a tug every time I lay him down on it. I have been crying so much and am filled with such sadness I can't imagine how your family must feel. Love Janessa, Sebastian, Nico & Carmine

Ashley, thank you for your wonderful comment. Amy was a big Beatles fan, so the quote is perfect.

I met Amy through Triangle Mommies and from the very very start she was so super sweet and kind to me and my son. She was so welcoming and comforting. I only knew her for a short period of time and wish I could have known her longer. She was such a wonderful person and will be greatly missed. She was much to young to be taken from us here on earth. It is very hard to find peace with this. My sincere thoughts and prayers are with all her many friends and loved ones and her two precious young children. She was always a giver and never a taker but I'd like to think that she took soo soo much love with her when she left.

Amy was a great friend to me. I can't count the memories that I have with her. I will cherish these memories now and hold them dear to my heart. She touched many of us and we are blessed to have had her in our lives.

. Thanks to everyone who is remembering Amy. We have had so many people contact us this last 3 days, we are overwhelmed and so very grateful. So many wonderful people. Amy would love all this support for her two small children.
She left us way to soon. She was a dedicated mother to her preschool age children, she told me at about the age of 20 that she would have a little girl one day and name her Elizabeth Browning___________. (The husband and last name undetermined at that time). Browning was her grandmother's madden name. We will tell young Elizabeth one day that she is the 7th Elizabeth in our family.
Amy woke up each day thinking about what activities she was going to do with the children. She was involved with her large play group deciding the activities they would do that week.
Amy tried a long time to have a family after she was married and even went through the process of meeting with adoption agencies. When they were signed up with one and waiting on a baby, she realized she would be having one of her own in about 7 months. Other than her wedding day, the birthdays of Elizabeth and Sam were the happiest days of her life.
Amy was always a giver. Never a taker. i remember her giving away her toys as a child and just last month driving a huge car load of things to the charity box. She loved doing things for her family and friends.
Her passing leaves a huge hole in our family.
