    I am so sorry for your loss. Amber and I were old friends in high school. High school was a very tough time for me, and she was always there for me when I had a bad day. She was one of the sweetest people I know. My thoughts and prayer will be for Amber

    It's hard to find the words to describe the loss of someone like Amber. There's a permanent hole in the hearts of so many people that she had touched so gracefully in her lifetime. Simply put, 21 years was never enough for her. She was an angel on this earth and she will forever be an angel wherever she is now. May she rest in the most beautiful, sweetest peace. Your memory will go on undoubtedly forever, beautiful. You are missed so terribly. 🤍
