It is such a loss that your family will never get over. I can't believe you are gone, you will be missed. If there is a god, he needs to be with your two girls, husband and mother. I know they are taking it the hardest.

Again, Shame on you people and your comments. Are you Jesus Christ???? Who are YOU to judge???? Do you not think about Amy's family that will one day possibly read these offensive comments. Amy was a true Christian she believed and followed and when your mind is playing tricks on you, you can't see your way out. I believe Amy was an angel here on earth and now she is in heaven with God. Our God is a merciful God!!! If nothing else people think of her family possibly reading your hideous comments.

I can not imagine anyone being so cold hearted that they would attack someone who has passed away. God is a God of mercy, and grace. God's love endures forever. I am confident that Amy had accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and because of that she is now in heaven with Jesus and her mental illness no longer haunts her. She is free in Christ. WE need to pray for Amy's family especially her little girls!

I just found out about Amy yesterday. I worked with Amy at her gym in Burlington. She was a good poerson with a good heart, who loved her little girls very much. I can understand her mental state during the time before her death, because we talked about it on a daily basis. She was in the midst of a bitter divorce, struggling to keep her passion, her dream , her business alive, and the daily worry of keeping a roof over her head and caring for her two little girls. She poured everything she had into that business, hoping to make a difference in the lives of the women in this county, empowering them to lead healthier, happier lives. Though we did not part well, my thoughts and prayers go out to her, her family, and especially, her daughters. The only comfort I can find is that she may be at peace now, no longer burdened with the overwhelming stress and worry that she had been drowning in for some time. Let us all not forget, these time of extreme financial hardship can take their toll on anyone and everyone. Make it a point to help someone, or even simply offer kind words of encouragement. Those of you who cast judgement on her, beware, for someone you know, love, or care about could be silently struggling.

I am so saddened by her passing, but even more by some of the comments from bloggers here. God bless her friends and family

I didn't know Amy very well but was a member of her gyms so I knew of her. I am so sorry to hear the terrible news and extend my sympathy to her family. Life can be very hard on us. Some are blessed with the personality that allows us to let things roll off our backs but then there are personalities that are very serious about everything and worry and stress to the point that confusion takes over and we just can't find our way through. Amy must have been very sad and scared.I feel so bad that her fears took her life.
She is free of the panic and fear now and is safe at last. Pray for her children....

That person was sharing from their heart just as everyone else. Shame on you for judging them and belittling them . Clearly they are questioning things in their own life and greiving for Amy. I think supportive words and speaking of what a wonderful God he is would have been more appropriate. It saddens me that a Christian would not take that oppurtunity to share a peice of your heart and provide that person with some peace and good will on behalf of our wonderful savior.

What you did not see were the other posts that were here that have since been taken off that were VERY offensive to Amy's passing and her family. If you will look at my other posting you will see I did indeed share my thoughts on God and Amy that were positive.

I too was a patron of Bodies in Progress. Although I did not know Amy well or know the exact circumstances of her death, I have surmised from the posts that her death was self-inflicted. As the daughter of a person whom committed suicide, I am deeply saddened to hear that we have lost another person in this way. My heart goes out to her family. Losing a family member to anything is difficult but losing them to suicide brings a whole other more complicated level of emotions and challenges for those that she has left behind. Her family, especially her daughters are in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that they will have the love and support they need to withstand society's prejudice and misconceptions of mental illness & suicide.
