      Hi Kim

  2. I had the honor of meeting Rich last Thursday night at an Angel Fund Walk of Hope Team Captain’s meeting.
    I was moved by his ability to make me feel like family right away. At the time I did not know of his recent diagnosis. After the meeting he gave me a big hug & I got teary eyed. Little did I know, Rich you needed the hug much more than I did. I am more focused than ever to raise money for research to cure ALS along with our Team Amy’s Army in honor of my niece Amy Leland Davis.
