I met and was honored to meet and get to know Amy as an Upper Midwest Region Hadassah sister a number of years ago. Though I only got to come down to Cedar Rapids a few times, each visit was enriched by Amy's support, encouragement, curiosity and hospitality. We in the Twin Cities always looked forward to Amy's company and input during her sojourns to our Region events and conferences. She always had much to share and valuable input. We had hoped that she would someday be a Region President. Tho we only recently learned of Amy's illness, our focus for many years has been to support Cancer Treatment and Cancer Research through our Hadassah Medical Organization. Our hearts are breaking for your loss as well as for our own. Amy will be deeply missed by those of us lucky enough to know her. We will redouble our efforts on her behalf and in her memory which is and will continue to be a blessing to all of us who cared for her.

Joel, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your wife, Amy. I only met her once or twice but I can tell how much she loved and was loved. Our most heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. Love, Joe and Joyce Jilek Bayma

I am so very sorry for your loss, Amy will be missed by all whose lives she touched. Joel- I am so glad you traveled and shared the many wonderful times. I hope you find comfort in your memories. Emma, Sasha and Gail - your mother was so proud of all of you and the amazing young women you have become, much like your mother. Your mom was so happy to become Bubbie Amy to those beautiful little boys. Sasha, I know you more than the others, and I felt it an honor to watch you grow up. Through all of our 'adventures', I could always count on you for your sense of humor and quick smile and friendships. I know how your hearts ache now. I hope your memories will help dry your tears. Amy will live forever in our hearts. Sincerest sympathy, Susan
