I have met many people in my life, but few have made as much of an impact on my life, as Erika had. Erika was always thinking of ways to help others, in a non-reciprocating way. She was genuinely concerned about others, before herself. Erika was a strong woman with a heart of gold. She loved her Friends & most of all, her Family. Many a time, Erika would share about their successes & endeavours. She was a proud Wife & Mother. To My Dear Friend Erika, Thank you for being a wonderful Friend, my Voice of Reason, my Mentor & Advisor. I will always remember you with much love & gratitude for your friendship & love. I will forever cherish the memories of the times we shared, esp. on those 'day trips.' I will miss you terribly. You will always be near & dear to my heart. Rest in Peace, Erika. I love you very much.

To Chuck, family and friends, Those of us in the ADR community, who knew of the struggle for health that Erika went through with your devoted help, are saddened by this news.
