A lovely tribute to your friend. It is always so hard to lose a friend and especially one so young. Blessing to you and Amy´s family.
Thanks, Darlene. It was a day that we all shared memories and photos and it was really healing in some ways.
No words. Just tears. <3
Thanks, Miranda. It is hard day for a lot of people but I am so happy that I got the chance to be her friend for a short time.
Aww. I love this! Ugly crying…
I didn’t mean to make you cry, Alicia, but you get it. I wrote this about a month ago and never went back to edit or change because it just seemed like it was my gut writing. She is so missed by so many.
I am so sorry, Beth Ann!
Thanks so much, Marci.
Love it and you! It’s one of “THOSE” days today! Hugs!
Clearly she was a good friend and a great person, she is sorely missed. This is a sweet post. Sorry for your loss.
Thank you, Josh. It was a day of sharing pictures and memories for sure. She is still in our hearts.
Dear Beth Ann, please feel my hug right now. It is so difficult to lose a friend like Amy. May peace be yours today as you remember your friend. This is an endearing tribute. And how wonderful that you sent grief booklets to her parents for a year. You are a kind, caring and compassionate soul and I am blessed to call you my friend.
Thank you so much. I felt all the love coming our way and the day was a good day of remembering and sharing with all the bloggers especially memories and pictures.
I think about Amy quite a bit. And her family and her fiance. When the truck safety group met in DC this past October Amy was there in my heart. Hugs to all of you.
Thanks so much, Dawn. That means a lot to me.
I love this. Thank you for such a beautiful poem. And thank you for writing this for those of us that just couldn’t. You said it beautifully.
Thanks so much, Mary. I just had to get it out and this is what happened.
Back at ya.
