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”.
