Amy Donohue is one of my "new" daughters acquired when Ruth and I married in October 2008. She has a birthday on April 24th. Amy is married to Bobby Donohue and has four sons, Andrew (16) Anthony (14) Avery (9) and Aiden (8). They live in the mountains above Knoxville, Tn. near Smokey Mt. National Park.

Amy works part time as a hair stylist, teacher's assistant, and staging homes for sale. Most of her time is taken up with her busy family. She is a wonderful Christian lady with a heart for helping people in need. Most of all, she is her mother's dear friend. They talk by phone almost every day. It is a joy to watch Ruth's eyes light up when Amy calls and to listen to their loving conversations.

Amy was the first of Ruth's family for me to talk to....she wanted to know "my intentions" and grilled me for several minutes on the phone. I must have passed the test though, because she has received me warmly and treated me with daughterly respect.

I feel blessed and greatly enriched for having her in my family. Thank the Lord for this added benefit to being married to Ruth!
