Amy was as bright and cheery as the sunflowers she loved. At 23, she was experiencing her new life at Cantor and Soho with all the gusto of a young adult her age. She loved her job and the people she worked with at Cantor. She loved buying new clothes and things for herself and me (her mother). I believe she wanted me to be as happy as she was. She was generous at heart, so much so that if I said I wanted something, anything, she would immediately indulge me. I can still see the pleased look on her face when I happily accepted the things she gave me.
Her attitude about life was that it should be savored, not just lived and she was teaching me how to do just that. With children, she was a master disciplinarian, gentle, yet firm. She once told me she saw herself having at least 5 or 6 children. I loved being her mother.
Recently she had a new “take charge” attitude at home. She communicated to me that she didn’t need a mother in quite the same way anymore. She was taking charge of her own life, making her own decisions, and developing her own independent style. It was a rich and rewarding experience for me to watch. I miss her each and every day.
Amy was my only sister and my best friend. She was living the life that was destined for her at Cantor and in the city. It is heartbreaking that I will have to grow old without her love, friendship, and guidance.
