    The sunshine of your lives was a bright ray of sun to everyone who knew her! She was a real sweetheart! I have loved her ever since the day she walked into my classroom at NHES. She was a pleasure to have in class and a friend to each of her classmates. She loved and cared for everyone! What a special young lady she had become. The Lord blesses us all when he gives us the opportunity to love and cherish the past. Your daughter, Erin will always hold a special spot in my heart. Thank you for allowing me to teach her and the chance to enjoy being with her for a small part of her life. May the Lord bless you both with strength, his love, and peace.

  21. Perfect Stranger. My name is Aaron. I was at Huntsville Hospital over the weekend. Once I came into the ER there was a massive crowd of people congregated. I knew this person must be loved by all the people there. It was so surreal and sad to see the pain. I am a perfect stranger but one thing I have in common is. I am a child of God. I know this beautiful young lady must have been remarkable in life. She was on Earth for 16 years but her spirit and gift of making people come together will keep them together forever. I am a parent of sons. I can never imagine the pain but I could only picture the joy she brought to the many in the ER and life. My heart crys a tear for her parents and all of her friends. I watched the young ladies go to the restroom hiding their pain every second while many parents and church members were there praying in fellowship for this beautiful Princess. She must have been an Angel but God has on and she is on the Wings Of Love Forever. Prayers and Respect to the Family of this Angel. RIP Princess Erin.

  22. Johnny, Lori & Jonathan,

    Sandy and I are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of your beloved daughter and sister Erin. We didn’t get the chance to meet her, but we can tell from the tremendous community outpouring of care and love that this is one very special young lady. Know that you are all in our hearts, minds and sincere prayers.
