To Erin’s family and friends, I am so sorry for your loss. My son, Jason, was in the Youth Group at St. Paul’s when Erin was the director. Erin was a lovely and faithful young woman and we were blessed to have her. Jason has many fond memories and made lifelong friends during his youth group years. I want you to know that Erin’s legacy of love and faith lives on in the lives of the young people she taught, inspired, nurtured and influenced. Praying for God’s healing presence and the comfort of our Blessed Mother to surround you with the love and peace of Christ.
