The family would like to extend special thanks to Susie Helmer. She was not only a remarkable friend to Amalia, but she spent countless hours visiting, caring for, preparing meals for and advocating for Amalia. She was instrumental in the well-being and comfort of Amalia for many years. Amalia's life was happier and more meaningful due to the selfless commitment made by Ms. Helmer. The family will be eternally grateful.
