To the entire Perruchio, Schafer & Hyde Families-
We are so sorry to hear of Amy's passing, and she will be missed. Everytime we went to the hotel I would ask for her as my waitress. She was honest, blunt and told you how it was with that great laugh she had. Our sympathy and love extended to you all! Dara (Bulterman) Oliver and family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I had not seen Amy in a long time but I remember her from her younger years and the girls dressing in the same outfits. Amy was full of laughter then and I am glad to see she never lost the laughter. I hope the happy memories help ease the pain of her passing.
