  1. Tanner Crump, Shelby and Annlee Bryson, Paragould says

    Amy was so kind and caring and a joy to be around. Always happy with a smile. A wonderful daughter, mom, sister, grandma, and friend!!! When I worked in Jonesboro, I was blessed to share many of my lunch breaks with her eating at Los Arcos and the China Buffet. I was also lucky to share my first and only trip to Talladega with her. She was one of the first people to get Annlee a gift when I found out I was having Annlee, and she came to love on my baby in the hospital after Annlee was born. Always there to listen and love you. I’m thankful Annlee and I got to go see her this past Friday. Annlee even left her little puppy dog with Amy to make her feel better. She’ll be SO very missed. Prayers for her close friends and family during this very difficult time!

    Amy and I used to work together 27 years ago. She was one of the first people to meet my baby daughter. We lost touch when we moved away but always kept up on Facebook. She will be missed by so many people! Rest in Peace Amy! Thinking of all the family at this horrible time.
