I found Aimee's bulletin through a dear friend. We all need to help each other and when I found Abigail my life is now validated. Thank you Abigail xoxo

I found Aimee's bulletin when I searched for advocacy help to navigate this system known as adult special needs. I said two things: I need help. I need help now.
I believe that there will be changes soon as this system cannot continue to destroy families, Families that have met their edge, and are in need of help. It is an epic failure. And I mean failure. Change. Is what follows. I have asked for help and believe that on the wings of angels my help is here. Thank You Abigail and your friends.

Dear Lisa,
So incredibly wonderful to hear from you. I'm touched by your words and memories of our beloved Aimee. I remember the swimming and how much Aimee loved the water, her songs, which I play when I go to visit her at the cemetery, and of course, dear old Captain Noah, and her coffee.
What a comfort that you took the time to share your memories with me, you can't imagine what a comfort it was to read your note.
Aimee's legacy lives on, Aimee's Team is still advocating with in Harrisburg, step by step, inch by inch.
Would love to catch up.
With Infinite Gratitude,
Ab

I was Aimee's caretaker for a few years when she was at Lynch Homes. I remember her with great fondness. My heart regrets not keeping her in my life longer. I had called about her when she went into hospice-I had thought the end was near then. I had no idea of the challenges she or Abby faced!
I used to take Aimee swimming at the local YMCA. She loved it so much and I think she was at her happiest in a pool. We sang songs together-she loved Captain Noah. And coffee! She really loved her coffee!
Abby- from the first day I met you I knew you would do something important!
I'm so glad that I was able to get to know Aimee. I will never forget her.

Abby, yesterday, on the anniversary of Aimee's passing and today as you prepare for the memorial service to send your mother to join Aimee in her final home, I just want to thank you again for your tireless advocacy and passion for all human beings especially those some would deem "The least of these". You are a true angel!

Thank you for the sharing the story and what you have think about the people who live in the real world with special needs that is not easy life for both .
There is more to do for the world for special needs as human being.

I believe Aimee is having wonderful time wherever her soul and spirits are.
Thanks

As the sister of a young man with special needs who's had her fill of non-constructive conversations with caseworkers and group homes, I wanted to say I really appreciate Abigail's tenacity and the good work done by creating this site. I am anxious about my brother's long-term care and it's nice to know there are good people out there advocating for these issues at the policy & lawmaking level. What seems like "common sense" to us caregivers is often a long hard fight. Blessings wished for this family.

Abby in honor of Aimee's birthday which just passed, I know we have much more work to do! It was great meeting with the team in Harrisburg but now it is time to light a fire under their feet. I am so eager to see some training and a simple one-page guide rolled out for families around the state of PA. As we celebrate the new year, let us re-double our efforts!
