Extreme grief visits my family right now. The loss of a brilliant and loving daughter and sister leaves my brother, his wife, and son reeling. The loss of a kind and inspiring granddaughter and niece leaves a grandmother, grandfather, step-grandmother, aunts, uncles, and cousins dizzy with heartsick. The loss of a loving and fierce, brave and generous friend and colleague creates endless pain.

Rest in Peace, darling Amy Elizabeth Wadley. You leave behind echoes of laughter and memories of warm hugs. Your wise, supportive words and loving gestures continue to comfort. Each of us privileged to know, meet, work with or be tended by you is left with a broken heart. Too many hearts aching. The love you shared and that shown through you will shine on.

Amy, what you wanna do? I think, I could stay with you for awhile maybe longer if I do . . . (from Pure Prairie League, Amie)
