The poster was accompanied by a letter from the group expressing their gratitude for speaking the the Treatment Center. Here are a few excerpts from the 3 page letter I received.
"I can only imagine what it takes to speak with complete strangers about what you've gone through. However, it is such a Divine and positive thing that you do this and have found a way to help other people by doing so."
"If just one single person can walk away from your story and use it to do the right thing, imagine what you have accomplished, imagine the lives you have saved. Mrs. Neff, saving lives is a miracle."
"If that one person you have touched with your story may turn around and reach out to two more, .... Then once again you have accomplished something worth fighting for."
"And all of that just because you were willing to be a voice when someone was willing to listen."
"We ask that you never stop striving to make this world a better place."
"Always remember that 96 people got together, 96 strangers, and the first person they wanted to do something good for was you."
To all this, I say thank you. I am touched that 96 men, some whom I have not spoken to in class yet I'm sure, chose to honor our Abrielle. I am touched that they took the time to put their feelings into words and send them to me. I am grateful to hear and see the impact my speech is making on the men and am so hopeful they take it with them for the rest of their lives.

The journaling reads, "The girls and I loved to spend the weekend baking and sugar cookies were always a favorite. We made them for every holiday. This time it was Easter cookies ~ bunnies, butterflies, tulips, and eggs. 2005"

We received a donation from someone that asked her employer to donate the amount they would have spent on a gift for her for Administrative Professionals Day to the Foundation.
I had two classmates that I had not seen in years send donations to the Foundation after they recently discovered we had lost our little girl.
We received a donation from someone close to the legal proceeding and who was a support for us during that horrible, confusing time.
Thank you all.
