So sorry for your loss, love to all.

My condolences to Amos’s family. I knew Amos from the fitness center and when he brought his ponies and cart to Camp Good Days for rides. The kids looked forward to the cart rides and loved the ponies.
Rest In Peace Amos, you will be missed.

Very sorry and prayers to the family. Amos was known to me first as the silo man and later as the originator of Oak Hill. Always friendly where ever he was, a true people person. He will be missed.
