Amber never seemed to like me bringing this story up( I tried to tell her Children about it once), but I want everyone to know. Many years ago Our Mimi Frances took my brothers, and our cousins to wet&wild(a swim theme park) My older cousin Amber was watching over me taking me to different slides. I told her which slide I wanted to go on, so we climbed up, and she asked me if I wanted to sit in her lap, I said no trying to act like a bigger, braver boy then I was ( i think I was 6yrs old). So Off Amber went, and the green light told me when my turn was. The slide was fun, and scary. When I finally got to the bottom of the slide, and entered water pool. I went straight to the bottom of the pool, i looked down, and could see a water vent that was sucking water down. For the life of me I tried as hard as I could, the downward current was too strong. I stay under water what seemed like quite a long time. I was looking up through underneath the water, and I could see every one above playing, walking, and most of all I could see they couldn't see me. I started to take water into my lungs, and I watched everyone while thinking I was going to die. as the pain raged into my lungs, I saw a sweet angel dive into the water, and grab me up out of the water. I am sure she slapped me on the back. I remember coughing up water. My Sweet Cousin Amber saved my life. She always tried to play it off that she didn't, but i know noone else saw me, but My Older Cousin Amber. Dion I remember promptly guided me to the kiddy area, where I played the rest of the day (I'm sure I scared him)

I had the pleasure of working with Amber in the Mabank ISD. I have many good memories of our work and collaborations, but one, in particular, I want to share. Amber and I worked with and taught students with disabilities which often had its challenges. We regularly planned events and outings for our students. So on one occasion, Amber invited her mom and her mom's friends to come to our classroom to conduct a sewing lesson (pillowcases, specifically). We all had so much fun and it was such a joy to see Amber interacting with everyone especially her mom! I'll never forget how we all joked around and laughed a lot during that event and had a glorious time. Even though Amber could impress you with her level-headedness and get-to-the-point demeanor, she knew how to let her hair down, be silly, and laugh so hard it hurt. Those are the times I'll remember most and the love she had for her family. Thank you, Amber, for those memories!
