A spirit of adventure and much laughter you shared,
With a true heart, people knew that you cared.
You crafted a journey unique just to you,
Independence you showed to more than a few,
The friends you collected, some new and some old
All have such memories and tales to be told.
A lasting impression you created with style,
And warmed up the world with that Amy smile.
