Today was not easy saying goodbye to my youngest niece, but I am comforted to know that she is once again able to walk, run and dance on the streets of Heaven (and maybe even do a little mud wrestling! ) free from any limitations. We will miss you very much Amy, but you will never be forgotten and will always forever be loved.

When I think of "childhood friends", I think of Amy. My memories of our time together are so special to me. Some of my favorites are of usplaying tennis, ice skating on the pond, jumping on the trampoline (and stirring up a nasty bees nest), playing in the playhouse which we painted the inside multiple times, or just hanging out enjoying our friendship. I remember marveling about how smart she was. I remember thinking to myself, "how does she know so much"? She was a terrific student and a good piano player. But most of all, she was a good and very kind friend. I am very sorry that I will not be in town to say goodbye tomorrow, but I look forward to when we meet again. Maybe a tennis match will be in order? My deepest sympathy to Mrs. Cotterman, Mike, Connie, Karen and Tom and the rest of the family. Linda (Beal) Reall
