    My thoughts and prayers go out to this family. This is so sad. To J, I prefer spelling Saviour with seven letters because seven is the numerical symbol for perfection and my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is perfect.

      You said it. Jesus Christ is perfect and I like to spell Saviour the way I just did.

    I pray that God holds this family in his arms and that the family will find comfort in Amy's memories.

    This is so sad...but folks we have to wake up to this, it seems this is becoming more and more common...wonderful people taken at an early age...and all we can say is we are praying for you...I'm thinking the praying is not working, we have to teach our kids to be more careful..only they can control these situations..if someone else can, why do we keep reading this in the news...nothing is worse than a young life being strong..

    To J, Its sad that all you can think about is correcting someones spelling when someones child, sister or friend is dead, praying for the family of this young lady.

    Really "J"?!? A life is lost and your concern is how to correctly spell Savior? Thoughts and prayers go out to Amy's family, she was such a beautiful person inside and out!

        @ anonymous you're a piece of s---! Why would you even put a remark like that on here? You're nothing more than a heartless moron with too much time on your hands. Maybe that is why you are too embarrased to put your name on here. Amy was a beautiful person. Someone's daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. How do you know she was not a good driver. Car accidents happen every day, and they can happen to anyone, not just bad or careless drivers. Now do us all a favior and SHUT UP!!!! BTW before you even reply, I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but this is not an opinion, just a stupid, mean comment. Praying for the family and all of her friends.

        You really are a piece of s---! Amy was not a terrible driver, and I know this for a fact because she was one of my close friends. This is one of the most dangerous curves in Madison county and she is not the first to di on this curve. Her friends and family are mourning her death and you have the nerve to post something as idiotic as this. Until you actually know the person, you need to keep your mouth shut. Didn't your mama teach you not to say anything if you have nothing nice to say? You're a heartless coward who can't even post your real name on here. RIP Amy. I love you, girl. Dance will never be the same without ("And we were swingin'" Haha!) I'll be dancing for you this year. :)

      Amy was a beautiful person. Always had a smile on her face. I miss her so much already.

    God bless the soul that passed away. I pray that the person knew God as his Lord and Saviour. I am praying for the family.

      This is America. We don't spell Savior with a 'u'.

        Really? Someone just died and you're on here correcting people's spelling. Get a life.
