Amy Bleuel wanted to honor her father’s passing, after he died due to suicide. She settled on a potent symbol to help express the hope when a life is saved — the semicolon. It is a symbol of the perseverance that comes from grappling with mental illness.
Sadly, Bleuel lost her own battle with depression last Thursday, March 23. She was 31.
May she rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and all those who mourn the loss of Amy.
