    Thank you so much for letting me know – I will surely record this so that my children and grandchildren will learn, hopefully understand, and maybe as they grow in age and knowledge, they will be part of a long awaited solution. Again my thanks Margaret

    Your devotion to the fight is awe-inspiring. I’ve watched and read and participated with you for several years. Covering all the bases, grabbing every opportunity. A wife, mother, quilter, and aching-heart daughter who is living the belief that one person CAN make a difference! You go girl!

    Thank you so much for letting me know about “The Forgetting”. It was sad, heartbreaking, yet hopeful.
    The quilt auction is a brilliant idea. You are my hero, Ami. Keep up the good work and God bless you.

    I had seen “The Forgetting” before and was just as impressed this time. The Doctors & Scientists have made some progress (in fact quite a bit of headway) since I first say the film. At 84, I have my Senior Moments and thankful that none in my family have had this curse and I may escape.

    I admire you for all you have done toward the solution, and feel it has been a great contribution. May the Angels stand at your shoulder as you pursue you goal.
