Mr. and Mrs. Nelson,

My name is Andrew Lillos and I am writing you from Canada. I saw the story on Annie today on the Ellen show and would first like to say how truly sorry I am for your loss. I found great strength in listening to you talk about your daughter and her list today. I went online and read through her list and found it to be truly amazing. the two below really hit home,

11. never be ashamed of who I am
12. be a person to be proud of
The list shows what an amazing person your daughter was. I wish everyone could see the list and realize how strong these words are. I have two young daughters and I plan to read them the list. I want them to hear all the amazing things your daughter thought of and how strong of a woman she was.

I am sure people will read this list and feel inspiration.
I wish you and your family all the best and thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this wonderful list with all of us.


Andrew Lillos
