From day one I knew you were a good person. You put a smile on my brother's face and I'm forever in debt with you for that. I will miss seeing you but I'm happy you're not suffering anymore. Rest in Peace my friend. Love always.

I had the honor of working with Erin at the Hudsonville Metro location. She was a kind and beautiful soul, who loved her family and friends deeply. I will miss our conversations, and her wonderful insight as true Woman of God. She always had great advice, and had such a positive outlook. Erin, You are an inspiration to so many and touched so many lives for the better…. Rest in Peace Friend ✝️
