It is with a heavy heart I am sharing the news received from another social media site a member of this forum has died. Amy M Coleman & I exchanged messages years ago as novice pumpers.
I looked back and found Amy’s first post was in September of 2017. I thought it was longer ago than that as I started pumping with an Animas Ping and a Dexcom model 7.
RIP Amy M Coleman.

This may be the hardest post I’ve ever had to write. I held onto it at first, but now I have permission to share, since her family has been notified.
My best friend Amy M Coleman, my precious, beautiful, penguin loving lil Peanut… passed away this weekend. I had not heard from her in a couple days and we were concerned, so I went up to check on her today and found her. From the looks of things, she seemed to pass peacefully in her sleep. Likely from hypoglycemia. With her cat Bubba by her side protecting her.
There are so many people who cared about her, and honestly I couldn’t write all the messages personally. I apologize for that.
I lost my TuxieBelle 2 weeks ago. And now Peanut. I’ve lost both of my best friends within 2 weeks of each other. I am not ok. I’m struggling to get from one moment to the next, knowing that my Peanut will never “oy vey” at my again. I just don’t even know where to go from here. One foot in front of the other, one breath til the next. I’m going to do the best that I can, because it’s what she would want me to do. Otherwise she would give me “butt-chin face” and i’d have to give her the “Stern chicken” sticker back. Gods, I’m going to miss that. My world is already emptier. i’m not ok. But someday maybe I will be.
I will notify here when arrangements have been made. Feel free to message me with any questions, just know i’m not terribly chatty, and honestly having trouble putting words together to make coherent thoughts, and to see anything through the tears.
Any of her friends that aren’t mutual, you may message me as well. I have tagged her so it will show on her page and hopefully notify you as well.
I will always love you, Peanut!
