    I’m so sorry to hear of Amy’s passing. One of my first jobs as a young girl was at Glik’s in Frankfort and Amy was the assistant manager (I believe). She was a joy to work with and be around (always smiling and happy), and just a very kind and genuine person. Sending my heartfelt sympathies to Ken, Susan, and her family and friends.

    Ken and Suzi…
    My name is Mark Travis and I used to be the “mobile closer” for Amy and Sean when they had the Urban Financial Office. I moved to Fort Myers, FL about 12 years ago but I tried to stay in touch with Amy as they sent me SOOOOO much business over the years I closed for them. Anyway, I sent Amy a Thanksgiving message and didn’t get a reply then also sent a Christmas message and again, no reply. By chance, I “Googled” her and OMG….. that’s when I saw the bad news. I am so so sorry about your loss and will always remember her and Sean and their generosity towards me. We had a well oiled machine for many years.

    Again… please accept my deepest condolences and if you are ever in Southwest Florida, feel free to look me up.

    Deepest Regards,

    Captain Mark Travis
