I first met Erin in the early years at Play Days. We played AYSO together before she gave up soccer for running. We enjoyed weekly carpools to gymnastic. We spent years at swim lessons together and eventually, we became lifeguards together and taught swimming lessons. In high school, there was always choir and seeing her down in the pit during the musicals. I haven’t seen Erin in years, although was connected through Facebook. I enjoyed watching her travel adventures and how successful she was. It was a sad day to hear of her passing. I will always remember her as smart, beautiful, and funny. And although she had life cut way too short, she had a very full life.
