It is with the heaviest of hearts that we offer a way to support our dear friends, the Bartlett's, after mother and wife Amy Black Bartlett
passed away unexpectedly a week after the birth of their third child, and long-anticipated daughter.
Amy and her husband Jerry have both contributed many years of time and caring to Yellowstone National Park and to the small, tight-knit community that surrounds them. Their adventurous, loving family has been a model for many of those that are blessed to call them friends. Their children are raised with an appreciation for our natural world, it's systems and our connectedness to it and to each other.
Known for working hard, being creative and sharing her generosity with others, Amy's core strength has always been her family and her faith. It's hard to imagine motherless children, especially one just new to the outside world. Their sons, Hayden (7), Jackson (3) and one week old daughter Ella Faith Kathleen will be infinitely cherished by Jerry, their families, and the “extended family” of close friends.
The crushing weight of this unexpected loss will be soothed by the outpouring of generosity. Funds will be used for immediate associated expenses and as a way to ensure her family is cared for in this time of grief and forward into a time of solace. The children will benefit long term from anything we, as a community with our extended reach, can pull together now. Please share within your circles. Your thoughtfulness cannot be appreciated enough.
