Compassionate Friends of the Kenai Peninsula steering committee members listen to Kit Hill discuss the death of her daughter Amy Hill Saturday, Dec. 20, 2014 at the Joyce K. Carver Soldotna Public Library in Soldotna, Alaska. Amy Hill died from a heart attack 15 years ago, Kit Hill said. "She was a recovering heroin addict and was working at Toys R Us and just loved it," Kit Hill said. "She had moved in with two friends, am so grateful she got that time of joy in her life. I live every day for her for all the things that she wasn't able to do."
Sitting in the Joyce K. Carver Memorial Library conference room Saturday afternoon, five of the six Compassionate Friends of the Kenai Peninsula chapter steering committee met for what evolved into an open discussion on addressing the death of a child.
