Bill & Rita Ament need your help. As so many of you know, they have served this community for over 30 years through teaching dance to 2 1/2 to 75 year olds, plus day camps for children, Zumba, and much more. Bill is experiencing advanced lung cancer. He is currently recovering from radiation treatments while continuing to take immune boosting supplementation. The radiation may have zapped too much of Bill’s energy because it is quite a struggle right now, however, he could be on the verge of getting better so we are envisioning a celebration dance with Bill and Rita in the middle really kicking up their heels! Your prayers and good wishes do make a difference.

As is so common, between this event and previous health challenges, their income dropped & their savings have been exhausted. They are beautiful people who have contributed joy, love, compassion, and consciousness into the lives of so many over the years. Our goal is to raise $40,000 to help with Bill & Rita’s various medical costs, food, mortgage, etc. over the next year and I hope we collect well above that amount to give them a bit of a cushion. They will also be very grateful for any contribution of relief time, prepared meals, etc.

You know in your hearts that Bill & Rita bless you for who you are.

Inspirational cards can be sent to PO Box 636 Friday Harbor WA, 98250

Bill Ament surrendered his precious body and is

Bill passed feeling so loved and feeling deeply grateful. We were both so touched by the Loving, Caring, and Generous support from the community and beyond. We never dreamed that receiving this touching, brilliant support was possible in one lifetime.
A Huge thank you to all that contributed with so much love and caring to "Go Fund Me". "The Fundraiser" at the San Juan Community Theater, and all the beautiful donations. The delicious meals from the "Meal Train". The beautiful cards.
The positive, loving energy that Bill and I have been and are surrounded with, held us in faith, trust and tenderness, through the sacred adventure we shared together.
Being with half of my soul, my dearest love, friend, companion, and so much more, through this time culminated in a very brilliant, unforgettable experience of all the spiritual work we did alone and then shared together for 45 years.
Thank you:
The San Juan Community Theater Staff.
Elementary, Middle and High School and District employees.
Hospice for your kindness on his last days.
My dearest immediate Island Family, I bow to you for all the care, love commitment, gentleness, warmth.
Our dearest loves, all of you, we BOW and THANK YOU!
