Condolence & Memory Journal

I want to express my family's heartfelt sympathy at the loss of our beloved Amy. I've known Amy for most of my adult life but would only see her probably once or twice a year; either at the Yosemite Big Time Gathering or at the Spiritual Walk. Every time I saw Amy she'd say "Barbara's daughter"; referring to my mother, Barbara Summers Hess - my grandmother, Marjorie Farrington Summers was Amy's first cousin. Amy would always ask about her relatives in Bishop and I would update her on everyone. I will miss her smiling face but am happy knowing that she is with her loved ones who have walked the "star trail" before her. May the Creator bless us all.

Safe journey, Auntie. You lived a long & extraordinary life. Anyone who lives as many years as you did, to see all the changes the world has gone thru is truly an amazing person. You are pretty much the last of our line & for that you will be greatly missed. I will never forget growing up & having you & Uncle Al in my life. Take all the love from your family with you on your journey to be with the Creator. Say 'Hi" to Uncle Al for me, too. Love you much. Rest well.

"When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice."

Aunt Amy was a very special lady; your family was truly blessed... She will be missed. I am praying for all you that loved her.

Gram, You have left so many memories in my heart - its terribly sad that I will never hug you or talk to you again. One of my fondest memories is when you called out my name, you always pronounced it as Leenay...it always reminded me of your grandma, Leeanna. Remember the rides we took and the pretty rocks we found? They didn't look so bright when I got them home. I always thought it was because you weren't there to make them pretty anymore. When dad brought us to your house, your kitchen always smelled amazing. I will miss you!!
