To Everyone in Area VII:
I am humbled by the response of so many of you in Area VII to the news of Amy’s passing. Over the past weeks, we’ve been fortunate to share memories of her with you and are touched by your thoughtful gestures. Most appreciated are the stories of your experiences with Amy. Whether funny or silly or anything else, “Amy tales” continue to comfort me. Amy left her mark, but more important she was so grateful to Area VII for the support. She was truly proud to have represented Area VII to the rest of the eventing world.
It has been my pleasure to get to know you, the members of Area VII, over the last 30+ years and to share your experiences at the events. (I am known to cheer for everyone on cross-country–never having figured how any sane person could possibly consider doing that! At some point I’ll be back fence judging or pitching in any way I can at some of the events. Please feel free to say, “Hi.”
Thank you so much to all of you. It’s been a GRAND journey, and I look forward to cheering you on in the future.
Jemi Cain (aka Amy’s mom)
