My dad was a passionate and hardworking man. He enjoyed the little things in life whether that was a game of golf or coaching Saturday morning basketball. His dedication to his family and work were evident in his compassionate way of living. I know my dad envisioned my sisters and I to have a love filled life and that is exactly what he provided. Although I am sad my dad is missing my life I also know that he is watching over me each and every day smiling.

Finding AMF holds a similar feeling to how I think Charlie from Charlie and the chocolate factory felt after finding that golden ticket. AMF changed my challenging grieving process into an empowering experience. I know that without the experience of AMF and the people I have met through AMF I would not be who I am today and for that, I am forever thankful to this amazing organization.
