My wife lost one of her five sisters one week ago today, a bawdy, boisterous woman who wrote poetry, collected wacky gadgets and in her lifetime taught more than 15,000 children how to swim. We should all have a legacy so meaningful to so many.

Amy was Roman Catholic, but she loved this song and asked that her sister, Martha, sing it at her memorial.
