She was diagnosed with Lupus on 2000.  It did not define her and she chose with purpose not to allow Lupus to be a main character in her life.  She chose people, travel, fun, laughter, pitching softball and to be an advocate of pet rescue.  She chose to live in spite of Lupus.  Because of this choice her ending was quick and as graceful as one can imagine.  She leaves a hole that she would tell you to fill with the memories of her laughter... now... go adopt a pet.
Amy leaves to cherish her memory, Brothers: Jimmy, Ed and Bobby; Nieces and Nephews: Amanda, Joey, Nicholas, Brent, Kasey and Kyle; beloved rescue, Aarlie the dog; and many extended family and friends.  A Celebration of Life will be held from 1:30 pm until 3:30 pm on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at Dobbs Funeral Home, located at 430 N.

 God Took Him To His Loving Home
God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.
He wrapped him in his loving arms and whispered ‘Come with me.’
He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend.
He faced his pain with courage, until the very end.
He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was not in vain,
God took him to His loving home and freed him from the pain.
