That is so beautiful – thank you for sharing. The Safe family & the AGF should be very proud of the legacy they have created in Amy’s memory.
Hi Mary Denis Simon Rhys.Thoughts and Prayers to you always. A pleasure to be and help the Amy Gillett Foundation and to have done Amy’s ride 4 times already and will be doing 2015 with you all. 2005 is special to me in remembering Amy as its the first master’s games i had done and always followed Amy Alexis and girls on their journey. And Races Germany. Thankyou for all you do with Amy gillett foundation and see you next ride! Keep in touch with next launch!
I was just going over the story of Amy, as we have just lost our 17 yr old cuz hit by a car whilst cycling. It has just broken my family especially my uncle, aunt and cousin. Funeral this Tuesday 7th July in Mount Martha vic. Joel was a very careful rider. We will remember those lost on our roads!! In our hearts always
I never met Amy, yet feel like I know her from all her family & friends I’ve come to know since the Foundation was established. What an honour & a privilege it has been for me, to play a part in creating Amy’s legacy – the Amy Gillett Foundation – and watch it evolve into an influential voice in the road safety space. With best wishes to Mary & Denis (& Georgina) for their strength; and to all the Board members & staff, past & present, for your commitment & passion.
to Mary, Dennis, Georgie, Simon & all those who new & loved Amy, my thoughts are with you on this day 10 years on.
Today whilst out riding I found myself shedding a tear, thinking of what you all went through 10 years ago and what all families, including my own experience when losing a loved one or ons, in this way.
Thank you too, all those involved in the Amy Gillet Foundation. For your tireless work and the difference you are making, for the safety of cyclists in Australia. Also for the potential impact, that the changes you are making will have on the attitudes of Australians towards each other out there on our roads and therefore, as a result of this, everywhere.
To Mary, Denis and Georgina such a lovely tribute to Amy. I cannot believe it is 10years, I still remember the shock of Denis telling me that tragically yes it was your Amy. You have worked so hard and made sure that Amy’s spirit and love of life and sport lives on forever. It was so nice to hear your voice on here Mary took me back to our days teaching together (other lessons in life on safety). 🙂 Cheers Irene and Michael xxx
