Amaya Stethers Celebration Of Life

Yesterday our family changed forever!  My sweet niece Amaya passed away unexpectedly.  I have been asked to set up a central place for friends and family to give well wishes and donations if desired.
Amaya had such a zest for life...she lived up to her name with "Joy" in every day!  Every day was a party (all night long of course).  She had a passion for fashion, and a catwalk like nobody else!!  While we are talking about cats, her companion and friend YoYo the cat is missing his best friend as well.
Amaya had many health struggles throughout her journey in life, but this is nothing any of us expected.  As a matter of fact we are still waiting for answers ourselves.  I felt this would be a good place for us to keep you all updated as we go through this process as well. 
Debi has been so overwhelmed by the love and outreach from family, friends and community.  Amaya was a star in the Syracuse community.  Please feel free to share this page, any donations will be used towards memorial expenses.  From our family, we are so very appreciative for your outpouring of love, prayers and practical support.   We do not want anyone to feel obligated to give, but please share this page so that our community of family and friends has a place to express their love and cherished memories of our girl Amaya!!
