            Amy had planned on spoiling her grandchildren and watching them grow up.  She wanted you to know this: 

            I was given the gift of life on April 7, 1967 and now have to give it back.  Finding out that my cancer came back in 2016 and that it was terminal was the hardest thing to hear.  But that is the circle of life. 

            Amy joins grandson, Eldon Dean McKean; grandparents, Wm and Ethel Schwab and Howard and Etta Bell.
