1) Always use a subject pronoun when the pronoun is part of a compound subject. Ex) Amy and John wrote often. Amy and he wrote often.
2) Always use an object pronoun when the pronoun is part of a compound direct object or a compound object of a preposition. Ex) She missed John and Amy. She missed John and her.
