  6. Erin was a force, she would let you know exactly what she felt and not back down. She lived and loved with that same intensity. I remember going over to the house and she would be gathering food or clothing for a friend or family member in need.

    Erin also loved her children fiercely, and would defend them and their choices even if she did not agree with them.

    I had many conversations with Erin that I will never forget. She was a force and she will be missed.

  7. Erin RIP no more pain you are our angel in heaven. Make sure you get your wings. You were a double sister in law love you always

  9. Jacob, Sarah, and Ken.. I just heard news of Erin’s passing on election day, this past week. One of my fellow election workers (Cristendra S-S) is a former associate of yours, Jacob, from Butterworth days. Anyway, I was so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I will remember her as a very kind and generous person, always welcoming me into your family as if we really were related! My heart goes out to each of you, wishing you the best of memories, smiles when you recall the good times, and virtual hugs from your Mom/Erin as you dream and/or need her most. Ken, thank you too for allowing me into your family’s life. I can only imagine the depth of your sense of loss.
