Remembering Amy

Did you ever meet an angel?  
I was lucky enough to work closely with one two years ago before I left my seventh grade teaching job. Amy was a walking Barbie doll. Seriously. She was absolutely gorgeous both inside and out. 

We met after my principal asked me to mentor Amy during her first year of teaching. Amy and I shared a fun year together talking endlessly about teaching, friends, family, writing, my move, celebrities, workouts, books, and Amy's upcoming wedding. Not only was Amy easy to work with and an amazing, caring teacher, she was also a softball coach, so excited to snag a middle school position this spring. We clicked instantly and became good friends.

Amy was killed in an automobile accident on April 8th, 2009 on her way to work.  

Although DeMasi Middle School lost a wonderful teacher and coach on that horrendous day, heaven welcomed a beautiful angel. I was blessed to share so much time with you, Amy, on your short visit here on Earth. I miss you.

Keri;
I've never met Amy but your posts makes me wish I had. I can imagine her nodding in agreement to some parts, blushing and elbowing you at others.
I'm so sorry for your loss, your school and Amy's family.
You are all in my thoughts.
