  1. I wish all of the best to Ed and the rest of the family during this difficult time. Amy was a delightful friend. She will be missed by all who enjoyed her sweet and considerate ways. I do recall the great testimony her brothers gave to Amy’s essential guidance, nurturing and care during their upbringing.

  2. Miss Harley, as all of her first graders at Larkspur Elementary called her, was our favorite teacher. She loved each and everyone of us. The first year that Larkspur opened she was there to greet us with that wonderful smile of hers every morning. She gave us the gift of herself. Years passed before I saw her again. I was taking my daughter to Fabra Elementary on her first day of first grade and there she was…still giving of herself to more students. We would run into each other around Boerne, usually at Mague’s during lunch, and after a warm hug she would remind me of the scare I gave her in first grade. She blamed all her gray hair on me and the day I ran away from school. Miss Harley you will be missed and thank you for the love of learning that you instilled in me when I was just a first grader.

  3. Thinking of you and how so very blessed we were to have such a precious “Aunt Amy”. She added so much to our lives and we loved her so very much. Love always, Shirolyn, Teela, Jess and Genie Moffett

  4. Amy will be missed. She was such a wonderful and loving educator. Her warmth added so much to our school. Blessings to her family. Dianne Kyle Former Principal Curington Elementary,Boerne
