    I remember meeting Amy at AMA 2017. She was such a nice lady and she actually got me even bigger into Star Blazers then I already was. She will be missed.

    Dave, I was heartbroken to hear about Amy’s passing. She was a loving woman with a warm smile, a gentle spirit and a kind heart. I am all the better for having known her. My thoughts are with you and her family. She will be sorely missed. I’m grateful to have been able to call her a friend.

    Love,
    Tiffany

    Amy
    Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with the world. You were part of my childhood. Starblazers was one of my favorite shows and I remember rushing home after school everyday to watch it. May you rest in everlasting peace.
