Memorial Garden Dedication Day message from Gary Rieth

(TBI Survivor and Brother of Bethany Rieth)

On behalf of my family, the Brain Injury Resource Center of Wisconsin, and my wife and I, we thank you all for coming today.

This ceremony is to dedicate this garden in honor and in memory of my sister Bethany Lynn Rieth who was involved in a fatal skiing accident.

Bethany was always very supportive of me in everything I did.

With that being said, in 2007 I sustained a traumatic brain injury, which gave her the idea to pursue a career in nursing.

She was always a very compassionate and caring, which would have made for an excellent nurse.

Live, Laugh and Love are the words my sister chose to live her life by. It is my hope as well as the volunteers and staff at the Brain Injury Resource Center of Wisconsin that this memorial garden is a place where you can do some reflecting, think a little deeper, laugh about good memories and be close with others.

In closing, welcome to the Bethany Rieth Memorial Garden
