    Congratulations Amy as with all the advocacy work you do many people will benefit from it. It was a distinct pleasure meeting you at the luncheon last year as your sister is such a hard worker throwing that function together. Patricia keeps us updated as to what you are doing. I think all of your advocacy work following John’s death helps to give meaning to whatever suffering you have had to go through.As it is for all of us after the loss of our loved ones.
    Your family is very special Amy and getting to meet all of you just shows the closeness you all enjoy with one another.
    I wish you so much success and happiness in all you do in life and I look foirward to hopefully seeing you again in the near future.
    Keep up the good work.
    Feel the love,
    Bob Riley
