Thank you letter from the parents of Drew Hunter

We would like to thank all of Drew’s Sigma Chi Brothers for the incredible support you have given us and his family and friends. From the moment Drew lost his life in the kayaking accident, we were enveloped by the love, support and compassion of his fellow Sigma Chi’s.

Several of you came to Vail and gave us immediate support. And when we returned home to Marshfield many of you flew in to help out and attend his Celebration of Life Service. Beautiful flowers were sent from the his Eta Iota chapter and its’ sister sorority, Alpha Xi Delta, to our home and to the church. The White Rose ceremony led by his little brother, Brad Vomacka, was incredibly meaningful and touching to everyone. To have so many Brothers participate, even some who had never even met Drew, speaks for the strong bonds that Sigma Chi develops.

When Drew first pledged, we immediately saw how seriously he took his commitment to Sigma Chi. We will always treasure the letters he wrote to us and the life reflections he made during that time. We have no doubt that the values he was raised with were strengthened due to his membership in Sigma Chi. He even told his fiancee that joining Sigma Chi had changed his life and help make him the man he was.

We thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts who knew and loved Drew, not only for your compassion to us, but also for giving him so many fond memories and strong friendships over the years. We will always consider you his brothers, and offer our home to you as he would have.

With affection and gratitude,

Gail and Jeremy Hunter
