~~• He Only Takes The Best •~~

A heart of gold stopped beating,
Two shining eyes at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
When days are sad and lonely,
And evening shadows fall,
We hear your voice and see your face,
Your sweet memory lingers on.
God knew you had to leave us,
But you did not go alone ~
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

Eulogy        The Rainbow Bridge        One Sweet Day       Together Again


If we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true,
We'd pray to God with all our hearts
For yesterday and You.
A thousand words can't bring you back
We know because we've tried...
Neither will a thousand tears
We know because we've cried...
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too...
But we never wanted memories
We only wanted You.



Amber was a beautiful, vivacious, loving young woman.  She loved sports, animals, especially her kitten, Kitty, and she loved shopping.  No matter how badly she felt, she could always find just a little more energy to go shopping!  Above all, Amber loved her family.  She was a daughter that would make any mother very proud. However, Amber was more than a daughter; she was her mother’s best friend.  

When Amber was diagnosed with lupus and scleroderma, the physician offered a dismal prognosis. The chance for a long and happy life was questionable.  Regardless, Amber planned for a future with her fiancé, Chris, and was looking forward to starting a family.  She had a wedding planned in Hawaii and had just found the perfect dress.   Sadly, she had a flare-up of the lupus and her little body couldn’t fight back; the planned wedding would never happen. 

Amber is gone, but never forgotten. . . .

 Like many other diseases, not much is known and there is no known cure.  Unlike other diseases, there is a lack of awareness of these deadly illnesses.  If you would like more information on lupus and/or scleroderma, links have been provided below.
