(Sacramento Bee) In the last four weeks, Sacramento urologist Dr. Louis Giorgi and his wife, Joanne, have received countless cards.

Envelopes, in a rainbow of colors and sent from people across the nation, overflowed from a bowl on a counter in the Giorgis’ Carmichael kitchen. Personal notes offered condolences for a young teen who died too soon. And some expressed gratitude for the message of her grieving parents.

The Giorgis’ 13-year-old daughter Natalie died on July 27 from a severe allergic reaction to peanut butter. The married couple have since used Natalie’s death as a rallying cry for more education about children’s food allergies.
