    My heart is broken. I loved when Erika called my salon I work in to make an appointment for a perm or a roller set. I always hoped I was the one who was there to do it. I so loved talking to her she made my day. It was a joy getting to do her hair such a happy glowing lady with wonderful happy stories. She will be missed at our little salon and by me. Prayers to the family RIP Erika love you!!

    I had the pleasure of knowing Erika thru the medical field. I saw the obituary in the Shoppers Guide. She was a ray of sunshine. Such a sweet lady. Loved talking to her. Would have of been great to have a cup of coffee and chat with her. I loved her accent. May your memories comfort you.
