    I would like to continue to say thank you on behalf of our family for these lovely messages of support and love for Amy.

    She would of been so flattered - and surprised.

    I am sure she is with Richard Hunt in haeven, reading these messages and wanting us to stop feeling so low and to get on with talking about the muppets.

    My cousins and I watched a muppet show tonight and we were all laughing and crying at the same time thinking about how much our girl loved her muppets.

    My condolences

    I haven't posted on Muppet Central in a long time, but I visit and read several times a week, and I was very saddened to hear about Amy's death :(. She was always such a cheerful and upbeat presence, and I got a good laugh out of many of her posts. She just seemed like such a positive and kind person, and I know that her light will continue to shine on.

    Such horrible news.

    I normally don't do too many read-thrus of all the posts on the board and only respond to a couple that I frequent.

    This morning, preparing to post about some fun stuff I have going on this month, I find this. As far as I can remember, this is the first MC Family member loss that I've experienced.

    Amy and I had become acquainted through several of the threads, but the one thread that we got to know each other (as best you can in a forum) was during a kind of role-play thing where I assumed the personality of my screen-name name's sake and translated the words of his rubber chicken, Billy, who suddenly became psychic.

    Questions would be asked and, in "Dear Abby" fashion, bad answers would be given. Amy posted a few times, and below follows the first of her posts:

    Dear Billy, the Psychic Rubber Chicken.....

    1) Will there ever be a MuppetFest in New Zealand?

    2) Will I ever get a date with my favourite Muppet Monster - Sweetums?

    3) Will I ever get a date?

    "Dear Amy,

    Your questions are the easiest of all questions to answer:

    1) No, but Lew Zeland may appear at one.
    2) No, but it's fun to pretend.
    3) Yes, what's your number!!?"

    BEHOLD! Billy the psychic rubber chicken has spoken.


    Thereafter came a battle for her attention by Billy the Psychic Rubber Chicken and Sweetums over who would get to date her. Finally, Billy the PRC said:
    ...Besides that, I'm single with my own hen-house by the beach, and lots and lots of corn. I can provide because I am Billy, the Psychic Rubber Chicken.
    To which Amy replied:
    Living by the beach does sound tempting - I could walk around naked all day!!!!! But I'm not sure about the corn, maybe I could eat chicken instead.
    Of course, you can see that her's happened to be a funny personality making her very delightful to chat with here at the Central.

    If these moments on the board here were some of her happiest, then I'm glad to have been a part of it all and wouldn't exchange the opportunity to have known her for anything else in the world.

    Except maybe to have her back.

    Love you Amy!
    Your pal,

    That's a nice way to remember her, Foz. She always having fun no matter what thread she was in. I remember a lot of great conversations with her. Here's one between her and sarah_yzma:

    Amy/ Billy's Girl:
    Sorry to the rubber chicken!!
    Honestly, I never made the connection to the rubber chicken when I changed my name.
    and unfortunately the chicken went into retirement and doesn't return my calls
    but i have my clipboard, ted. he just doesn't know it
    Chickens don't make good boyfriends anyway!!!
    Just trust me on that one
    what about clipboards?
    Sarah - yes clipboards do make good boyfriends because they are quiet (no argueing!) but on the other hand they have beeen known to bite fingers!!
    I guess being a clipboard isn't such a bad idea



    I didn't read this conversation until after I heard the news. I wanted to post back, but...


    It's nice to know she was a fan.:)

    Saying goodbye, going away
    Seems like goodbye's such a hard thing to say
    Touching our hands, wondering why
    It's time for saying goodbye.

    Saying goodbye, why is it sad?
    Makes us remember the good times we've had
    Much more to say, foolish to try
    It's time for saying goodbye.

    Don't want to leave, but we both know
    Sometimes its better to go

    Somehow I know, we'll meet again
    Not sure quite where and I don't know just when

    You're in my heart, so until then
    It's time for saying goodbye.

    Somehow I know, we'll meet again
    Not sure quite where and I don't know just when
    You're in my heart so until then
    Wanna smile
    Wanna cry
    Saying goodbye

    La la la la, la la la la
    It's time for saying goodbye
    La la la la, la la la la
    La la la la-la la la.

    I just started posting here so I did not get a chance to get to know Amy......by what I have read she was a wonderful person.

    She touched many lives though her personality and charm.

    I have no doubt that she is in great company with the number one greatest creator........Our Almighty God.......and the second greatest creator......Jim Henson..........she is in good company.

    God Bless

    I never interacted much with amy, but I loved her posts and personallity. Oh god I'm crying. I didn't cry when a distant relative died. I didn't cry when a neigbor (a real one, not FR) died. I didn't cry when my great grandmother died. I'm crying now. I can't beleive I'm crying now. I'm can't talk from the flu, but if I could i'd be sobbing. Oh god.

    I'll miss you Amy. I'll miss you. I'm adding you to my sig. I hope you're up there now, talking to Richard about Sweetums. I loved so many things about her: her sence of humor, her sig, her avioator, wich I spent hours wondering what it was. I loved the second part of her sig "There's nothing to it but to do it". Oh God.
    I'm going to miss you.

    Does anyone know the name of the cartoon charater in Amy's "'little muppet photo". He looks familler, but i'm not sure. It's not a muppet but that was the name of one of Amy's first threads.:cry:

    I assume you are talking about her avatar. The character therein is Billy Jukes, one of the Lost Boys on a non-Disney cartoon version of Peter Pan. Amy had a strong liking for this character, which is why she asked that her board name be changed to Billy's Girl.

    I still miss her. :cry:

    Yes I knew it was called an avatar I was just putting it in those terms, Thanks for that info Matt, I knew Amy's name was changed but I wasn't sure why untill now,:sympathy:

    OH man! I haven't been on here in a few months. What the heck happened? Her and I used to joke around about who could flirt with Cantus Rock more. And I was gonna take her sightseeing when she came to S.F.
    I'm really really sorry to hear that AMY is gone, she was such a very cool chick. My regrets to her family and all MC that Amy touched in the fun way she did.

    Wow. That's devastating. I didn't see this thread till just today. She was only 22, younger than some of us here even. My prayers go out to her family.

    I saw this thread the day after Phil put it up, but I could never think of anything to say other than the usual cliche stuff one says when someone they know has passed on. Then tonight, as I was looking through the "Dreams about Muppets" thread in Classic Muppets I saw this post from Amy:

    Now knowing that Amy is in a better place where she isn't sick anymore (agggh! cliche! :mad: ), I have to wonder if maybe her favorite Muppet performer was there to meet her when she went to Heaven. It's a nice thought to hold onto.

    So, goodbye Amy, and good luck on your new life in Heaven. Tell Jim and Richard we all said hi.

    I miss our Amy.
