    Erin was my best friend all through our elementary school to our mid 20’s. We had a bond that no one in this world will ever understand. It blows my mind that we never had the chance to catch up in our adulthood lives. Erin is and always be a part of my life. We may not have kept in touch in the past 10 years but I love that girl so much and wish that I could have just one more chance to talk with her and laugh and catch up the way that BFF’s do. I love you Erin!! You were my one and only true friend all through our school days. Rest in Peace my Love and Fly High with God and the Angels! <3

    Erin… God has you now darling, he will take care of you until Mom and Dad get there. It does my heart good to know that you are going on walks with Jesus! I will keep all the fond memories of when we were all together, they are special to me in my heart!

    Sally & Dwain, Monte, Chuck (and family) Jenny (and family), My heart is with you all! I wish there were words to express how I feel some of your pain. If there is anything I can do, please let me know!

    Sally and Jen: My heart is breaking for you. I cannot imagine a heartache so great. Although I never had the joy of meeting Erin, I can tell by your stories about her and the photos you have posted, that she was a remarkable woman, full of spunk and spirit! I wish I could be there for you and your family. Please be assured that I am holding you both, along with the rest of your family, very close in my heart and prayers. I love you.

    Elron: sister,sister sister. i see you are now finally at peace that you so desperately searched for. we will always remember you and i myself am going to remember the time you let me play in your wheelchair at the old trailer and i flipped it backwards. i didnt think you would ever stop laughing. we had so much fun when i was around you. i knew you when your mama was carrying you and i was around when you was a baby. unfortuneatly, i disappeared for awhile doing what i felt i had to do. remember the time when you and bill came out to my ex in lawton and ate ice cream with our black cat,Satin.i dont know who ate more,you or her. regardless, YOU ARE my sister and you will always be. i am B2 but deep in my heart, I am B1. clear them clouds for me,sis,because i am coming up there and we all are going to party with the best. i love you Erin
