  23. Lois,

    I met you in Mexico. I was there with my sister. Amy was such a beautiful lady and a strong fighter. She lit up talking about her little ones and talked about how they were counting the “sleeps” until she came home. I am praying for you, her dad, her husband and little ones and family. I am feeling this impact from Colorado USA and remembering your dear Amy. May God comfort your hearts at this time. My heart is hurting with you.
