She loved art, painting and viewing art. One of her greatest joys was spending quality time with her Mom, enjoying movie nights and engaging in heartfelt conversations through phone calls and Facetime. She held her boys and family close to her heart and treasured the moments she shared with them. Amber loved her boys and protected them fiercely. Amber had a special bond with animals, recognizing the unique and unconditional love they bring into our lives and was a dog groomer.
