We hope this Easter season was joyful for you and yours. It is unfathomable that Erin left us four years ago as she graduated high school. We wish we could be celebrating her college graduation as well, but God had other plans for her.
Through your generosity we have kept her spirit alive by supporting Ronald McDonald House, Dell Children’s Hospital and St. Michael’s Academy. All of these were so meaningful to her in her short time with us and we are honored to continue the work she started. We sincerely appreciate your past contributions and ask for your continued support.
In closing, please know we continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers. The support and compassion shown since Erin passed away sustains and comforts our family. As we journey through our daily lives we always remember a verse she lived by every day:
‘Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet
is fighting some kind of battle’
May God bless you and yours always...

"TO HONOR YOU"
To honor you, I get up every day and take a breath,
And start another day without you in it.
To honor you, I laugh and love with those who knew your smile
And the way your eyes twinkled with mischief and secret knowledge.
To honor you, I take the time to appreciate everyone I love.
I know now there is no guarantee of days or hours spent in their presence.
To honor you, I listen to music you would have liked
And sing at the top of my lungs, with the windows rolled down.
To honor you, I take chances, say what I feel, hold nothing back,
Risk making a fool of myself, dance every dance.
You were my light, my heart, my gift of love from the very highest source.
So every day, I vow to make a difference, share a smile, live, laugh and love.
Now I live for us both, so all I do, I do to honor you.
