    Im am absolutely devastated to hear about the passing of one of my very dearest friends, Erin. Her and I grew so close over this last year. The last time I saw her was on her birthday. I came downtown after work to give her a present. a silver necklace, that when I saw it thought it was the perfect gift for her. I will never forget her laugh and her beautiful smile. I miss her so very much. My condolences to her parents in this difficult time.
