She could sense immediately that there was a strong, family-like community that existed there. She knew she was one of the “newbies” and had a lot to learn but she was anxious to be part of your community. She loved everything about it. She found doctor’s offices and felt at home. Thanks to a long time resident, she found a neighborhood mechanic she trusted and, of course, Castle Island and Sullivan’s.

Since this tragedy has happened our hometown, Wilbraham, has embraced our family in their love and support. Friends, neighbors - everyone - have been trying to think of anything they can do to support us. One of the things they have done is to place white ribbons throughout the neighborhood and around town.

Someone close to us shared the statement below that was put on Facebook by the South Boston Community. Our family was incredibly touched. This is a perfect example of the close, caring community that Amy knew existed. Tragedy can and does strike in places and ways that are unimaginable and we want everyone to know that we will never believe that it defines the South Boston Community. 

Thank you so much for your show of solidarity and connection to us. But, most importantly, thank you for embracing Amy. We are sure she is smiling in the vibrant, infectious and loving way that only Amy can.

-The Lord Family
