"Please kindly convey my wholehearted gratitude to all the Members of the Council and to the Alums who were able to join you in San Diego and also find time to send personal notes to me. I am very grateful for each and every card that was sent to me and am surrounded by them. This made me feel that I was connected in spirit with all of you—as I was... As I have said over and over again, anything I ever might have done to help others through La Leche League has been returned thousands and thousands of times!!!!"
-Mary Ann Kerwin, La Leche League International co-Founder
