    Amy and Joe were our dearest friends at Ft.Riley, Ks 1964 and at Ft. Rucker, Al. 1965-1967. To this day I still remember her taking me to the hospital when our son was born yelling at me. “Cross your legs and don’t breath” in 1967, then taking our daughter home with her until George could pick her up. All the bridge games between the 4 of us. Amy and I against Joe and George. They never let us win. We then lost track of each other for many years and then the phone rang one day and there was Amy wanting us to come for Joe’s 70 birthday. It was like we had never stopped chatting all those years. Amy was a wonderful woman, loved her husband and children and grandchildren. Her family was her main priority and she was one of the dearest friends I have ever had. She was taken way to soon and will be greatly missed by all.
    Our deepest sympathies to Joe, Beth, Mike and Eddie along with all their children.
    RIP Amy, we love you.

    Joe, when we were new residents in Fairfield Glade, thanks to your neighborly friendliness, we fortunately came to know you and Amy. Amy, of course, graciously invited us to your upcoming landmark 70th birthday party where we met many new friends and your wonderful family. She embodied “Southern Hospitality” and was a true lady. She will be missed! Fondly, Larry and Pam

    Joe, Beth, Brothers & ALL the family . . .
    I am so sorry for your loss of Amy (I called her Ames in our emails), Mom & Grandmother.

    Since you moved, we didn’t speak often but we emailed a lot. Ames thought she was sending me too much in the way of her card making crafts, via photo. I loved getting them and told her to keep on sending them. When we did talk on the phone a few times a year it would usually be about 8-8:30 in the evening. . .it was always about 1.5 hours before we decided we should hang up. I’ll miss this, so very much. I’ve always missed Amy ever since she decided they needed to get in close proximity to family.

    RIP my dear Ames.
