Letter to the editor:

Our family would like to thank you for the overwhelming support that has been shown for Erika since her accident. We are so grateful for everyone’s generosity. We truly thank all of you for your prayers, cards, and gifts.

We also want to thank the Volleyball coaches, staff, team and families for the tournament benefit in honor of Erika. Bob and I walked into the gym and could not believe the support shown. It brought tears to our eyes. It was a very hard day, but a healing one. Thank you.

It is difficult to find the appropriate words to let you know how appreciative we truly are. Erika loved Simpson, and now we understand a little better, as to why.

Thank you for your love and support of our daughter.

The Amfahr Family
