Oh what sweet joy this sentence gives, "I know that my Redeemer lives." Only had a chance to reconnect with Amy a year ago once I was on the Hope Center board. She carried herself in such a way that no one would ever notice that she was battling cancer. I remember marching LVW with Amy and Joel. Always a blast even if she was a woodwind. :) Amy will be missed but only for a while. I will see her again when God calls me home. My prayers for surviving loved ones, Believe in Jesus and be saved!

Romans 8:9-11English Standard Version (ESV) More than know this, Amy believed this: 9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. 10 But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus[a] from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
