Thanks for supporting Stellmach family

To the editor:

Sometimes people ask us why we choose to live in Amesbury and we typically give some standard answer but now our answer won’t be so standard. All’s we can say now is wow!

The outpouring of support for our family as we adjust to the loss of Drew has been incredible. We feel so cared for by this community and so many people were involved that we needed to write this public thank you. We saw teddy bears, food, drinks, ice, coolers, outdoor furniture, tables, flowers, canopies, tablecloths, tissues and even toilet paper arrive at our home. People were here to coordinate all of this while we were able to focus on Drew’s memorial mass and each other. The support still continues with food, prayer shawls, cards and even more flowers arriving. It’s difficult to find words big enough to express our appreciation to all of you. This community has truly made a difference in our lives.

Marcia, Courtney, Sean Stellmach and Hannah Horton

Amesbury
