Amy Barba Bottom's Headstone

For those us who knew Amy Barba-Bottoms from Troy know she had a heart of gold.  Amy would do anything she could for others.  Amy fought a long fight since 2010 with neuroendocrine carcinoid cancer and passed away last year leaving her 2 young daughters, Abigail & Gabriella,  her sister, Elaina, her mother and Zac, the love of her life.  Her sister Elaina Barba Ramos was by Amy's side from the start.  Endless trips to MD Anderson in Houston for treatments and several admissions into Scott and White hospital was not an uncommon thing for the 2 of them.  Elaina juggled a full-time job, motherhood of 2 young children, caring for her elderly-grieving mother along with her ill sister, Amy. 

After speaking with Elaina, funeral costs were very expensive and both she and Zac did all they could to give Amy the best farewell she deserved.  We can all offer our thoughts and prayers to the family....and I want to do more:  I want to help Amy's family with the expenses for her headstone.  Having a headstone for Amy's gravesite will be a memorial of the great life she lived.  It would mean so much to Amy's children, her mother, her sister, and Zac to have a memorial headstone.

I asked Elaina to get a quote on a headstone; I had no idea what to expect.    She, Zac,and Amy's daughter went to Terrell Monuments and picked out a single headstone which costs $2700.  The costs will include the headstone, a vase for flowers and engraving at the top.  

If you know Elaina, she carries a big-load on her shoulders and never asks for help; if you too want to help her and the family, please consider donating for Amy's headstone.   

Thank you!
