My mom was the best mom I could have ever asked for, and she loved me and my brother more than anything in the world. She always wanted the best for us and always made sure we felt loved. I am always reminded of how similar I am to my mother from physical likeness to behavior habits that I do naturally that she did too. I love having those sorts of connections with her even though she isn't here anymore. 

AMF allows me to connect with people who have similar experiences losing loved ones. I can feel comfortable knowing other people grew up without a parent, or lost someone close to them. Most people our age don't experience a huge loss in their life and having AMF for people is huge to helping them adjust to the new normal and feeling comfortable knowing others have lost people too.
