UPDATE : Lone surviving Menasha Park shooting victim in 'good condition' - releases statement
Erin provided this statement through her surgeon, which is being released by Theda Clark Medical Center:
\"I am grateful to my friends, family and the community for their outpouring of support and prayers to me and my children. I have a long road ahead of me, but my doctors say I am making progress. It is still hard.
Jon was such an incredible husband and father. I was so honored God chose me to be his wife. He taught me so much and was so selfless, loving and funny. I could go on and on. Olivia was the most sweetest, dear daughter. She had a heart of gold and loved her family and close friends. I miss them so much and the pain is deep.
However, I cherish my visits in the hospital with Ezra and Selah and, with the help of God, will be strong for them. I look forward to joining them at home soon\".
