This is so sad. I haven't seen or talked to Erica in many, many years, but I have very fond memories of our time together as young women. I was just trying to track down the family again, and came across this. Sending love to you all!

I miss Erica very much but am thankful to have wonderful memories of her from our time together at work - from our "laugh out loud" moments to the gratifying occasions when we figured out a customer's super complicated order (Erica was, of course, usually light years ahead of me). Through her many improvements and innovations I feel Erica's presence throughout my workday. Erica is gone much too soon but she will never be forgotten. My sincere condolences to her family, Millicent Yee-Wilson

Every spring when we were growing up, Erica would say this poem: "Spring has sprung, the grass is ris I wonder where the birdies is? Birdie, Birdie in the sky Why'd you do that in my eye? Gee, I'm glad that cows don't fly!" I say this to my kids every spring and get lots of giggles from them. Treasured memories from their auntie. Kristen

We drove to Penn. State together and when she needed fortification to continue driving she would say "cookie" which was my cue to pass another cookie. A good sense of humour and unfailing kindness described her. To know her was to care for her. I miss her.
