I was in choir and vocal groups with Amy at Tascosa and Amarillo College.  She was an amazing vocalist and was very strong in her faith.  She was an encourager with a great sense of humor.  She was a good friend to me in high school.

Amy was our "Unsinkable Molly Brown" our senior year.

I am just now learning of Amy's passing and I wish that I had kept up with her through the years.

Just ran across photos of Amy when we were at the Tri-State Music Festival with the choir and photos from church camp and church bus trips.  What a beautiful voice and person -- when I think of Amy I remember lots of laughter and smiles and a good Christian witness.

I now think I remember Amy. It has been such a long, long time ago since we were in school together. If my memory is correct, I was in one of Neil Hess' musicals with her. Didn't she play the title role in in Tascosa's production of the musical "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" (1970)? It is the story about the feisty and irascible Margaret Brown, who survived the sinking of the Titanic and her rise from rags to riches with her miner-husband. I had a small role of the bartender, Christmas Morgan. I didn't know Amy well, only as the persona of her character -- who was full of vim and vigor, a person who was always optimistic, unstoppable and as the title suggest... unsinkable. In the first part of the play she is a tomboy and the role required her to be very physical in fighting scenes with her hillbilly brothers. It was a very difficult part to play and she did a bang up job with it. 

Considering the context of this memory, learning that she passed away is even harder to accept. Very sad news. And yet I'm happy that she had a good life with a loving family. 

(Someone please let me know if I have this right. Okay?)
