Villages Elementary School of Lady Lake, FL.
This year, on the second anniversary of Amy's death, Linda saved $1,000 and donated it to the music department at Villages Elementary School of Lady Lake to replace the music department's 15-year-old wooden xylophones with new, more durable fiberglass instruments. Linda and Bob attend Lady Lake United Methodist Church, and when fellow-members heard of her plans, they took a collection and doubled her gift to $2,000. "For me, this keeps Amy alive," said Linda. "I try to keep a positive spin on (April) and have something to smile about, rather than just being down in the dumps. We all have to pick ourselves up and keep going." Linda smiled through tears when she received a thank you card for her gift, signed by about 100 children.
