Today is a sad day, my friend Amy Pepper (Gwenique) has tragically lost her battle with cancer. My heart is broken for Amy, her husband Brandon and Amy’s family. I was lucky enough to have met Amy early on in my No Doubt obsession. Her and I used to trade concert bootlegs and various No Doubt memorabilia. We talked on the No Doubt Community, through email and on IM. She was always really sweet and a positive person. Back in 2006 I started hosting Amy’s website: www.lambcollections.com and giving her tips on html and websites. Many of us lambies are addicted to her website and can’t thank her enough for her dedication in chronicling the L.A.M.B. collection. It’s hard for me to understand why such a sweet person would have to go through everything she went through. Her positivity was an inspiration for me and she will be greatly missed. Amy touched so many of our lives and was well known with No Doubt fans. I never got the chance to meet her in person but I was hoping to one day go to California and see No Doubt with her and Brandon. The both of them have the biggest hearts and I’m so glad they met each other. Two No Doubt obsessed fans meeting each other and getting married was the cutest thing ever! They really complimented each other and Brandon’s unconditional love and support amazed me time and time again. The news of her passing has left me feeling empty and sad. Even though we didn’t meet in “real life” it still hurts to lose her, I’ve been talking with her online for about 13 years. Knowing I can never talk to her or ask her L.A.M.B. questions again is depressing. Knowing Brandon is going through this loss is gut wrenching. I hope posting this isn’t crossing any lines, I’m not trying to be disrespectful, I’m just hurt and sadden by this awful situation. I feel angry that she is gone and I’m angry at cancer, it seems to take the best of us. If anyone wants to talk to me about her or share your memories of her I’d love to hear from you: amynxdx@gmail.com.

Thank you to everyone reading this and Amy may you rest in peace <3

With all my heart,

I'm 32 years old and married to the best man on Earth! No Doubt is my favorite band, they inspire me everyday. I remember getting my first computer when I was 14 and wanting to make a website about them. Now, 18 years later, I'm a Computer Programmer/Web Designer and STILL making a website about them. I'd like to thank No Doubt for that!

    I don’t understand it either. It’s so difficult. My Father was taken by cancer also. It’s an evil disease. Good people don’t deserve this!

    Amy was such an inspiration to those who knew her. 🙁 She will be missed. My condolences to her family and her friends. I used to read her posts and reply to them on the forum when I went under one of my old usernames. So glad she doesn’t have to suffer anymore, she’s in a better place. It was amazing to know two people who had the same taste in music were brought together…especially the band of No Doubt…I’d love to find someone who loves No Doubt as much as me. <3 Rest in peace, Amy.

    Thanks everyone. I’m just so shocked by her passing. It seems so unreal. She touched more people than she’ll ever know. I’m glad she doesn’t have to suffer anymore but I also can’t understand why cancer even happened to her. It’s not fair :'( Has anyone talked to Brandon? I hope he is okay.

    I was so saddened and shocked to hear the news. Amy was a beautiful person, and I’m really glad I was able to know her. I had always wanted to re-visit Brandon & Amy up in the bay area after the one time I went up there and never got a chance to. My love & condolences go out to the Pepper and Griggs family!!
