Amy and I were collaborators and friends for more than ten years. I am saddened by her passing and I miss her already. My thoughts and prayers are with Nathan and Fred.
I followed your work from afar for the past 20 years. You were a fantastic scientist who produced some of my favorite papers. The early work trapping the transition state of maltose transport was truly remarkable and then seeing it in its atomic glory...wow! Thank you for giving us that. And such a nice, humble person to boot.
I will miss sitting with Amy at West Lafayette High School football games. She was a great person to share a blanket with during cold football games and she was always generous in sharing what ever she brought to stay warm with. She greatly enjoyed the band which Nathan played in.
I will miss sitting with her and talking. She had a great smile and laugh--her face could convey a lot of merriment! I will miss her friendship very much. My condolences to Fred and Nate.
It's hard to believe that you are gone, Amy. I can see us chatting at ATPase conferences, exchanging notes about our sons, and planning excursions after the talks. You gave the most beautiful and precise presentations! The maltose transporter was lucky to be in your sights.
Amy was a wonderful colleague, and she will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
