Great blog, Lisa.   :)

And I couldn't agree more with your observation about having a spectacular time.

Is it 2007 yet???

Dearest Lisa

I loved reading your blog..it brought tears to my eyes as I rememberd all the wonderful nights and days we had as a group and the reasons we were all there, I had never experience so much love and compassion between a group of people before as I did on the day of the memorial and at Ric and Thoms wedding...it was an incredible feeling, it finally brought all of us together as a family...the bond has been sealed and I doubt it will ever be broken.

I don't think any of us will forget it, but I thank you for the great reminder of an amazing trip.

Love and hugs
Jan :-*

As someone who wasn't in Montreal, after reading your blog and hearing some of the others talk about what a time they had, I hope that I can attend the next AMG.

Thanks for giving me a glimpse as to what it was like.

Hugs

Lisa honey,

This is a great story!  Thank you so much for your kind words about the Chapel of Hope.  We are all forever linked together, by the wonderful memories we made in OUR Montreal.

I really do believe that people come into our lives for a reason.   I'm so glad you came into mine!

Love,
Alan  :-*

Lisa, what a truly beautiful picture you painted for all of us, those who attended, and those who had hopes to.   I hope we all, in time, can have this opportunity of a life time to find the peace, the joy in knowing others like "us" in this close and very personal way..

Love

Lisa

All I can say is:  THANK YOU!

Your blog warmed my heart, it lifted my spirit, and it reinforced what I experienced too

This was my favorite part of your blog (especially the part I underlined!):

Quote
I cannot recall being so excited about anything in my entire adult life at that moment, aside from the births of my grandchildren. I wept, I kissed, I hugged, I loved, and felt more alive than I had at any time my memory could conjure. I was actually in the company of all of the people I had come to know and love for so long. It was truly an electrifying time.

Makes me feel bad to have missed it (though I was fortunate to have met Lisa in Nashvul).

So avoid August for the next one, OK? I just can't go places in August due to work commitments.

Hey Lisa........

                      I share your feelings on attending Montreal and do consider it a memorable experience.  Like you I was like a kid in a candy store meeting everyone who attended and will always cherish those moments.  Thank you for sharing your journey with us and for reminding many of us of how very fortunate we were to attend.  I thoroughly enjoyed our little chats together and the long walk back to the hotel that night.  You're one special lady and a very funny one at that. ;D  All my love......... :-*
