  1. Dear Liz and Rachael,
    in 1974 I was a young French student who came to Rhodes Island to learn your language. I met you and immediately liked you. Amy’s kindness, her smile, her intelligence spent during that summer with her and with you touched me and has never left me beyond the years.
    It is with great sadness that Cindy Harrison (Reilly) has learned me only today, this terrible news.
    Receive all my affection. I accompany you in this difficult moment and embrace you with all my heart.

  2. Amy was a wonderful person. My condolences to her family.

  3. My condolences to all of Amy’s family and friends. I knew Amy first as a mom of 6 and law student and a helpful and fun roommom to my first graders at Prim rose Hill school. l was lucky enough to be David, Charlie and George’s teacher. After I retired, she was our lawyer as we made our wills. I know Amy had to leave her law practice early. The years since were, no doubt, difficult for Amy and all of you . I will keep you in my prayers.

  4. Thoughts and prayers from Ruth Porter and family. Such fond memories to treasure of a caring, giving and faithful friend, wife, mother, gracious hostess and selfless advocate for those in need. May you find peace in knowing our Lord had a special place ready for her in heaven and her crown is filled with beautiful stones. Rev 2:10. John 14:2

  5. From the Fournier family to the Page/Oberg family our deepest condolences for your loss. May Amy rest in eternal peace.

  7. Dear Liz, Rachael, and Amy’s family-remembering a woman that was always kind. Cutting the grass last night, I thought about your dad religiously cutting the lawn at the girl scout house for years. Knew Amy from girl scouts and from school. It’s hard to believe 45 years ago we were going to prom and senior activities and now we have lost another Townie-class of 76. Go with God to rest eternal, Amy. In sympathy, Cathy (McConnell) LaSalle

  8. Rachel so sorry to hear about your sister Amy. She’s at peace resting and chatting with mom & dad, Aunt June, Uncle Rick and family. She will be well remembered by family, friends and classmates.
