“Amelia never complained and was always appreciative for the things in her life. None of us can believe this horrible event ever happened to her. We will miss her terribly.” stated by Wurth.
“Amelia has been one of my best friends and neighborhood buddies since our grade school days at Ascension. She was a friend who instantly knew what I was thinking even when no words were needed. Amelia’s beautiful smile will stay with me forever. I love you Amelia.” Annie Mattingly ’13 writes.
