  13. Janice, John and Jessica I hadn’t talked to Amy in 6 years, so I googled her name and was shocked and deeply saddened to see her obituary. She was a wonderful person and we had many good times traveling around and showing her some of the nicer places around the world. She will be dearly missed. May she now rest in peace. I’ve posted a photo album of many places we’ve visited.
