Dear AMH Family,
It is with a heavy heart I will write this next update. I am asking for prayers for Dr. Kitty Humphries and her family. Her beloved husband "Jamie" passed away last month while I was in Haiti. Dr. Kitty and Jamie have been long time supporters of AMH and the children we bring to the Roanoke Valley. She has helped us so much over the years with so many projects I can not even begin to list them all. Now she needs our prayers.
I am posting a photo of Dr. Kitty and Jamie 8 years ago at their wedding. His Memorial will also be posted. We all want to thank everyone who has donated in Memory of Jamie Humphries.
Thank you all my love V
James (Jamie) M. Humphreys, 38, Bedford
