From my childhood and throughout my life, I remember Amelia as a woman of genuine warmth and humor who was also a source of strength and support to her family and friends. She surely touched the lives of many people, as she did mine, who are all the better for having known her and who will sorely miss her.

Patricia: I remember your mother one day when I visited, she was so gracious and sweet. You and I have laughed about your nightly ritual several times. I am so sorry she has passed but realize she has had a wonderful full life. Its a blessing to have a family member as long as you all have had her. You have been a wonderful daughter and caregiver, all of your family are in my prayers and thought over the next few days and months.
