In Memoriam


(Amy's mother Lana typed a brief letter that she mailed from her home in Tucson to Amy's friends several days after New Year's Day of 1993.  Below is an excerpt from that letter.)

Amy Hall died on Wednesday evening, December 30, 1992, as a result of a weather related accident on Interstate 90 near Winona, Minnesota.  She was unconscious immediately and did not suffer; no other person was injured.  Amy and her beloved boyfriend Tom were in the process of moving to Eugene, Oregon, where he will begin graduate studies.

Amy was cremated along with her little dog Lou who also died in the accident.  Together, Amy and Lou's ashes will be scattered in a beautiful wooded area overlooking a lake and sand dunes on land that belongs to Amy and her sister Eden.  It is located next to her grandmother's house in Ludington, Michigan.  Amy's mother will take some ashes back to Tucson, Arizona, to place on a beautiful Mt. Lemmon site and to join with the ashes of her family's pet golden retriever.

To those who shared a friendship with Amy, we would appreciate it so very much if you would take a moment and jot down some special memory of that friendship, then send it to the family to share.  If you have photos you would like to share and would entrust to Amy's mother, they will be copied and returned to you.

Those who wish to make a contribution in loving memory of Amy may send them to the Anti-Cruelty Society of Chicago, where Amy had been an animal care counselor for the past year.

I remember having Latin class with Amy. She was very sweet to me. I will always remember she was the first person to mention "Alternative Music" to me. I have never heard that term, and she told me it was her favorite at the time. It's those little things we keep with us that make a difference, it seems.

An angel was among us during our time in high school.  She was a laugh that could animate the dreariest moment, a companion who could soften the harshest angst, a solace that could warm the coldest frost, a light that nourished our sense of togetherness.  Her smile, it beams as it ever has.
