Not sure what to say?

Very much shocked when I heard the news. Amy, you will be always in my memory. Being your first post doc, I still remember your training when I apply it to my daily research till to date. I still remember the day I went to see you at Baylor before you leave for Purdue although I did not know about your joining to Purdue. You told me that every one was coming to visit you although they did not know that you are moving. You said that we have some other connections with you. This time I missed...

I had the privilege of meeting Amy at a number of Gordon conferences and always really enjoyed talking with her about science. I had followed her work on ABC transporters for many years and her more recent work with Jue Chen has taken our understanding of ABC transporter function to new levels. She will leave a big whole in the bacterial transporter community and I will miss her. My deepest sympathies to her family.

I was tasked to help with a portion of the lab move from Baylor College of Medicine. I remember she was just approved for a grant prior to her move to Purdue and had mixed feelings about leaving. She was sad to leave Houston and all the work she had done here but was glad to be going back to be closer to family. I remember she was friendly and very positive during difficult times and situations it was sad to see her leave Houston. Amy we will miss you.

Very much shocked to learn about Dr. Davidson. She was one of the members in my Ph.D. thesis committee at Purdue University and thus we interacted a lot whenever I needed suggestions, guidance to follow a path of success. It has been more than three years that I have moved away from Lafayette but has always treasured the way she mentored me. A brilliant scientist, wonderful person is what we have lost. Truly saddened to know about her demise. My heartfelt condolences for her family. May her...

My heartfelt condolences to Amy's family and friends. When I first met Amy, I was deeply impressed by her enthusiasm for her research, her friendliness and how much she was admired by her students and her peers. I have benefited greatly from her vast knowledge and her willingness to share it. For me, one encounter at an ABC transporter research meeting sums up her wonderful and caring personality (and I have told this story to many people over the past few years): I asked her how large her...

Dear Fred, We were sorry to hear about Amy's death, but so impressed to learn about her wonderful life. It seems that she was multifaceted and lived each segment with gusto; her scientific work, hiking, music and loving family. It is really too bad that we have lost track of this wonderful part of our family. At this time we remember your parents and what they taught us about so many things, most of all love for the outdoors and hiking(in Montana. Please know that we are thinking of you,...
