From the moment I saw your shocking pink hair at college I knew we’d be friends. The Rocky Horror Show cemented it and for those few years in Bath we shared everything, including a house. Days that I look back on so fondly, you were so world-wise and so much fun to be around; a real force of nature. I truly regret letting our friendship slip, I saw you’d joined Facebook but was too...
she really liked noodles and had her own red chopsticks
The decluttering demon
Reading Ps’ comments about Amber’s fierce de- cluttering stance at work - believe me , same applied at home !!! General principle : if you haven’t worn it for a year, it has no place in the wardrobe! Also strict policies on number of saucepans allowed in cupboard and appliances on work top!!! The process was always painful (I like pans) but result fabulous.
Amber joins LSE
This ‘cutting’ is from the LSE IT Services Newsletter which announces Amber’s arrival at LSE back in 1999 - at a time when the big concern in ITS was the Millenium Bug and preparing for Y2K. In the next issue of the newsletter Amber wrote the cover story under the headline “Major new staff IT training initiative”, so it didn’t take her long to make an impact. ...

Can’t help thinking this beautiful spring weather is somehow linked to our lovely Amber, seems fitting that the sun should shine so unexpectedly & warmly for someone so bright & sunny & who brought such warmth to so many people’s lives. She’d be loving it for sure can just picture her in her shades at some alfresco cafe sipping a cappuccino or prosecco & enjoying...

Peach granitas in a beach bar in Siracusa– Amber tweets September 11th
I have the BEST family and friends ever. Thank you everyone for all your tweets...– From Amber when in hospital
When I close my eyes I can see her face Her smile Her eyes Her expressions Conveying happiness and affection And sometimes a little mischief When I close my eyes I can hear her speak Not just the sound of her voice But the way she spoke And how she said things Softly. Calmly. Sweetly. Even rare frustration was gentle When I close my eyes I can feel her love The warmth of her friendship Her...
Amber - a bright memory
I worked with Amber for several years and she was one of the nicest, most helpful and considerate people I ever worked with. She was also great fun and could always see the funny side of things. It is hard to be writing this in the past tense. Amber will remain in my mind as a bright memory.
I first met Amber when I started work at the LSE in 2002. I used to always like going in to see the training team and always ended up spending longer chatting than I meant to! I remember conversations about exotic holidays and films. I also remember the toy cat that purred that gave me a bit of a jump the 1st time I noticed it! I got to work more closely with her a few years later and always...
Amber learning to punt
Amber being taught to punt by Vince Woodley in July 2010 during a UCISA Conference. Amber did very well and we had a great time on the river. I will miss you Amber.
It's not real
I keep staring at the fact she’s gone but still don’t see it
I always found Amber to be warm, friendly, welcoming and approachable. Amber would always do her best to find some time in her hectic schedule whenever I needed to speak to her, and would always take the time to ask how my team and I were. Amber would always volunteer her help should it be needed. Amber is, and will be sorely missed by me, the department and LSE as a whole. To know that I will...
Miro (Butterfly) Amber
Gate crashing a party, cheep beer, fried egg sandwiches, trips to the pub (many),cinema, intense nonsence led to an endearing bond, even at distance, but how this butterfly bloomed to happiness is a wonder to be loved Lizzie, my love to you and the wonderful memory of Ambers.
An extraordinary person
The online scrapbook got a mention in the funeral service by the lovely vicar, Ginny. Yey! (amber’s love of sparrows too)
Very much missed
Amber worked along the corridor from me and I met her probably around 10 years ago when I started work at LSE. She was always smiling and wearing something fabulous (and often red). She was thoughtful and well respected and had an amazing memory for details about people, that meant she always lifted you, even just saying hello when you met her around the campus. I will always remember an evening...
Amber and me at the Dorchester 2008
In 2008, we were shortlisted for an Institute of IT Training award for a project that Amber started and I worked on. We didn’t win on the evening, but we had a great time and I remember having a really good long, leisurely, personal chat with Amber over dinner. Naturally, she had her favourite smartphone in her hand and was wearing red. - Jeni Brown
Amber Miro - I'll miss you
Your were such a warm, kind and caring person. And professionally inspirational. I often think how would Amber do this. Such a tragic and sad loss.
