Don't know who Amy is but she appears to be yet another entertainer that was killed by drugs and more drugs. Suicide? I don't get it...sad, sad, sad.

I should have seen this comming when we had 4 "extra questions" on our post cruise survey at the end of our March Panama Canal HAL cruise. Sounds like a good idea to me.
