We truly cannot begin to express our gratitude for the tremendous amount of support, love and encouragement for my sister Erin. The many visits, texts, and prayers have been incredibly touching and overwhelming just trying to take it all in. From family, friends, coworkers,
students, parents, and waiting room friends, it is a true example of the strength that Erin will need to get through this. My mom, dad, Melissa, Pat and I appreciate everything that you all have done for my sister and Dustyn. We feel blessed beyond words.
For those of you fortunate enough to have a sister, you know the bond that exists between you. You are best friends at heart, always there for each other, and want to protect them no matter what the situation. Melissa and I thank you for praying for our sister and for most that know her, know she is a very kind, loving and determined person. She is a fighter, she is our hero, and I truly feel in my heart that her giving new life to Melissa, God will give her life and take care of her.
To our superhero Uncle D:
It is beyond putting into words to witness your love and encouragement towards Erin. You are inspiring to watch. So while you thank everyone, my mom, dad, Melissa, Pat and I thank you for being so STRONG for Erin. We are forever grateful for your constant love for her. You have been so awesome. Your wife would be so proud, and don't worry she will get a full report, organized and filed by day, time, and event, just in Erin fashion. She may even freely and cooperatively let you eat off of her plate on Sundays! If you remember at your wedding rehearsal, I said in my toast that we always wondered who the hell was going to marry Erin? We are so lucky and blessed it was you.
Thanks again to everyone, and remember to live a little lighter, laugh a little more and dance like nobody is watching...I've learned that from Erin.
With much love and gratitude,
