We will truly miss the laughter and jokes of Uncle Amos. He shared his experiences and wisdom with us and for that he will be dearly missed. God needed someone to make him laugh, now he has our dear Uncle. We Love You dearly. The Key family

To James and the rest of the Amos family. My condolences to you at this time for your lost. May Christ comfort you at this time and may his peace surround your hearts. May The Lord continue to bless each of your lives with the gift he gave to you that only you had a opportunity to experience personally in knowing him in an intimate family atmosphere. Hold on to that memory and cherish it. Now unto the only wise God that is able to keep us and present us faultless before his presence in glory. The only wise God both no and forever, be dominion, power and glory forever. Amen

Amos took care of my grandmother, mother, all 3 of my sisters as well as myself as we all worked at Hendricks. He always made sure we got to our cars safely. He was a wonderful man. Very kind and always helpful. Because we all worked there he treated us like family. Even my husband remembers him fondly. Prayers for your family.
