    Where to start, Erin Black, you have always been like a sister to me. You had a heart of gold and never met a stranger. You made everyone feel important. You greeted people with a hug and a smile. You helped people in need. Not to long ago, you bought a 200 gift card for someone and ended up giving it to a cashier at Walmart because you knew she needed it around Christmas. I remember years ago when you still lived in Denver, we were heading home after work and we came upon a motorcycle wreck. We stopped, you gave the guy a blanket and let him sit in your truck bleeding until help arrived. You cared deeply for everyone. I have so many wonderful memories of you and will cherish you forever. I miss you . Fly high with your Mom and mine you sweet Angel. I love you

    Erin was one in a million woman. She made everyone she met
    feel like they belonged and were part of her extended family. I will never forget the time I spent with her and
    will miss her infectious laugh and smile. Her love
    for people and animals endeared her to both. Heaven gained
    A special soul and while I know she is in a better place I will miss talking with her and think of her fondly and often here on earth. I have a little peace knowing she is now with her Mom whom she missed terribly and loved fully.
    She was one of the good souls that I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to know and grow to love. RIP SWEETLADY until we meet again on the heavenly side.

Hugs, kisses, and much love sent your way. I love you, little Erin.
