    Maria Amador, RN

    Such a shock this morning to hear of the tragic murder of Maria Amador,RN who was in a key position in patient advocacy and education at the Miami Project. Many of you may have known her. She will be missed. I cry for her family and remaining children.

    Maria was a wonderful and kind woman. I have been contacting her since 1996 for myself and clients. She was also a member of the Paralysis Task Force.

    I read of this last night after an already terrible day and simply cried.

    May you rest peacefully Maria and your son recover.
    Every day I wake up is a good one

    Why, why, why take the children with you? And the wife?

    Condolences to the surviving children. They'll have a tough road ahead.

    I hope it wasn't due to the economic crisis.

    What a terrible thing. Will there ever be a time in which we will be able to not only diagnose mental illness before it erupts, but also cure it?

    There was a family secret that came out in the local news at noon. One of the girls told freinds of sexual abuse a while ago. The friends told their parents, but it was never reported to authorities. Such a sad story....

    What a shocking & sad story. Maria was a very kind & caring lady. I met her several times when she traveled up to my area from Miami to speak at Spinal Cord group meetings that I attended. May she rest in peace & may her surviving son be ok after suffering such a tragedy in his young life.
