I was so sad to hear, by chance, of Amelia's passing. I think of her often, she was always the welcoming and warm person who made me feel at home in "El Centro" so many years ago. Todavia me recuerdo de su voz y la veo riendo.

También siempre tendré bellos recuerdos de Amelia. Me ayudó mucho cuando empecé a estudiar el español y la cultura latina en la universidad de Calgary, y la agradezco mucho su apoyo, su sonrisa, y todas las maneras en que me hizo feliz. Siempre me acordaré de ella con gusto.

It is very difficult to express the extreme sadness I feel at the passing of such a wonderful, sweet, sharing person. After going a long time without seeing Amelia, she welcomed me with open arms when we saw each other in July. Amelia expressed determination to overcome her illness, but her higher power determined it time to call her physically away from us, but she will live on in our hearts and memories.
A beautiful woman, Amelia will be missed so much.
