This week was a difficult week for the camp. Jill Palmer passed away unexpectedly this week. Jill had been living and working here at ABC for over 10 years now. She was an integral part of the everyday life here. She was one of the managers, helped keep up the land, decorating and cleaning the cabins, taking reservations, working with the ever present firewood process, and offered countless hours for the rehabilitation of the property over our time here.
Jillybean left this world far too soon. Over the last week we have been delighted by the stories of the strong and positive impact that she had on so many lives. We weep every time we hear them, for our own hearts were changed too…
This world is a better place because of the selfless advocation that she offered this camp and all those who came into its boundaries. Her sweet spirit always brought joy along with it. Jill’s soul will be so dearly missed. We are so grateful for our time with her, and know that heaven is sweeter now that she has crossed onto her new life.
We’ll miss you dear friend.
