My name is Howard Lenett. I've had a business relationship (URstore) with Erin for about 7 years now.

I was shocked and saddened to hear the news of her passing - My heartfelt condolences to Erin's Family!

Erin was a very respected colleague and entrepreneur - she will be missed by myself and our team at URstore. Erin worked extremely hard and was always busy but was always able to share stories about her boys whom seemed to be her #1 priority. She was always extremely dedicated in all the endeavors i saw her participate in, including her tireless volunteer work with her boys sports activities. She was the epitome of 'give the busiest person' more and it would get done!

Once again my heartfelt condolences and best wishes go out to Erin's family.

RIP Howard
