Playing for Addy

| May 2, 2013

The River View community came out “Addy Strong” Wednesday evening, May 1. The event was held to honor the memory of Addy Snyder, the infant daughter of Pat and Stephanie (Lapp) Snyder, who passed away a few weeks ago. The event was organized by River View senior Lauren Esselburn, who said that Stephanie is “special to me”. Sporting their blue jerseys with orange “AddySTRONG” lettering, the softball team gathered in a circle of prayer and love prior to the game. The young women gave hugs of comfort to Stephanie as tears rolled down their cheeks. River View senior hurler Taylor Spang said, “She’s been our tenth man all season long”.

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
