    Amy was a wonderful friend to me and everyone that knew her. Everytime we see each other we would stop everything and talk. She had a sweet and loving soul. I will truly miss my friend!

    No words can express my sorrow. I was terrified babysitting and feeding Amy as a premie. Brenda assured me that I was doing it right. We always had fun when all the Griffin kids were together. Much love and many hugs to Shane, Caleb, Jacob, Brenda, and Alicia.

    I was blessed with the opportunity to meet and spend some time with Amy when i was visiting my daughter Carla Madjar and her family for a month. It was obvious Amy and Carla had a great friendship. I am sure there is an empty spot in Carla’s heart no one can ever fill..I know my daughter knew Amy’s friendship was a gift from God…And Amy left a mark within Carla along with many happy memories. In life everyone we share time with in life leaves a few pages in our lives. Yet there are those special people like Amy that leave a chapter. We don’t realize what we get and what we give. .. And i know Amy loved Carla’s children and Amy as well as Tommy and Jessika were always happy to see each other. I know in my heart Carla and her family will always miss Amy. And will be speaking of her many year’s from now. Because you don’t forget a gift from God…
