Amy Pressey was called home by Jesus suddenly on September 8th, 2023.
Along with the tragedy comes expenses, I wanted to start this page so her parents who traveled from Virginia would have one less thing to worry about and I’ve had people ask me how they could help. Whatever on your heart collectively with others will help her family , the money goes directly to Andrea Pressey , Amy’s mom.
Those that don’t know they have to travel from Virginia to Mississippi , do a life celebration here and a funeral in Virginia so it’s a unique situation. If you can’t help please pray for the family. Prayer is the most powerful gift we can give to someone we care for! Prayer provides peace and comfort.
