Amy Maryann Anderson Leininger,

This intelligent, sensitive, beautiful woman continues to amaze us! Her love for her sisters, reading, fairness, knowledge, friends, equity, family, decency, dogs, truth and country is incomparable. One of Amy’s life goals is to see genders treated equally and fairly throughout the world. Amy gently enlightens others through her actions and words – written and spoken, and likewise, seeks to always learn from, listen to and care for those around her. She is a true friend.  Amy, we wish you all of your dreams and plans. We will always be present, loyal and your foundation from which you will continue to grow. We love and are so very proud of our first born daughter. Thank you for all that you have given and brought to your family.

Love, Mom and Dad
