I am proud to have known Mary Elizabeth Yoder as a dear friend for over 15 years. I am honored to have been there at the inception of The ACY, and have witnessed her going through trials & errors, ups & downs, hardship and heartaches to get her foundation to where it is today. Although it still has a long way to go, TheACY has alreadymade huge impacts on so many lives. For each milestone accomplishment for The ACY, I have seen her endured sweats and blood, jumped hoops, pulled in countless allnighters, and exhausted her own personal resources and pocketbook. Watching her work relentlessly on her cause was a humbling experience. I can say with conviction that The ACY is on its way to becoming one of the leading voices in helping and empowering children cope with a death of a loved one.
