Although I did not know Amy, she is now an Angel of God. I will keep her family & friends in my prayers and ask the Lord to guide them through their tragic loss.
We are not to ask why and wonder "what if" - He has a plan for each and every one of us & one day we will all be reunited and have the answers to our many questions.

God Bless -

Amy is looking down and saying, "I'm fine & at peace, don't mourn me; rejoice, for I am now with the Lord".

Alena-Eatontown. Let's not make any assumption when you do not know the family personally and could not possibly know any facts.

I want to focus on saying rest in peace Amy, may you be in a happier place then here. You had very pretty eyes- you will never be forgotten-ever.

I agree to not make assumptions over such a tragic thing. The teen years are hard on every child in one way or another, suicide is nobodys fault and nobodys choice but the person who does it. Her family needs support, not criticism at this time. Any mother with children can relate to the pain that her poor parents must be going through right now. Please keep opinions and ignorant statements to yourself.

Teenage years are hard on almost every kid. At some point in everyones lives, they feel like they wished it was over , or like it is the end of the world. However, I do know that her parents loved her more than life itself. And when a child butts heads with a parent, and the parent does their best to discipline them, it is not an excuse to blame them for the tragedy that took place. Im sure it was many factors, but the point is not who is to blame, it is to keep a happy memory alive and to support her family which is completely changed forever.
Amanda, I am truly sorry for your loss of your cousin. I hope that others on this blog will realize that publically speaking some of the words that were written is not supporting Amy or anyone close to her.

im a good friend of amy's, you have no right to say that about her friends, NO ONE KNOWS why she did it, except ay, you dont know what she was thinking that exact second, yes she had a fallout with many of her friends at the end, but that doesnt change that some of those friends she considered a sister, she loved her friends sooo much and she also loved her family, she talked about her cousins alot, so please dont blame anyone, not the family not the friends, no one amy made her own decision let her rest in peace

I didnt really know amy all that well. But the thought of losing someone that you've met, and talked to, it really hurts. i went to her wake, it has seriously been the saddest thing ive ever been to. looking down at her and thinking " i knew this girl. if only i could get to know her better." even though i didnt KNOW her, i love and miss her more than anything. We had small talk, but that small talk is no more. Amy rest in pease. You were seriously amazing in every way and we all miss you and love you.

rest good:]

i know that a lot of people who have posted here were close with her, but so was i, and i just want to say that it is completely unfair to pin blame on her family or any of her friends. so please don't. i'm definitely no expert on suicide, but i know enough to understand that if you think that anyone kills themselves because of one thing, you are no expert, either.
rest easy, amy. love you.

I didn't know Amy, and now I never will, but I cried for her anyway. Death is so sad...it's like a dark hole and no matter what you do, as far as anyone knows, you can't return to the body you used to call yourself. Who knows, she could be in heaven, she could be a new person. It just kills me how when something tragic happens, a lot of people who used to gossip about her or hate on her suddenly love her. It's really sad. But Amy is and always was loved by God. Because everyone has a good side and a bad side, but sadly, the bad side got the best of her. In the hours after I heard about it, and that she was still alive, I prayed for her to live. There are so many lucky people who barely survive after attempting suicide and realize it was a mistake, and it crushes me that she didn't get the chance. May she rest in peace, wherever she may be now.
