"It's beyond words. Like I said, I've run out of words. It's overwhelming. I don't know how to express my feelings. The niceness and kindness that people have shared with me since the middle of December -- it's unreal," Lamping said.

Lamping was inducted into the Packers Fan Hall of Fame in February.
