Jane so very sorry for you loss.
Donna Lee Swanson
To the sweet family of Erin Marie, I want you to know how sad I am this very morning. We will meet at the Church to Celebrate the Life of your Dear Girl. I can remember the very same morning when we layed my own sister to rest. It is difficult to realize that it has been over thirty years that I experienced this anguish. I remember being quite confused about why we would be Celebrating anything. It was so painful. It took me quite awhile to realize that I really did have the opportunity to actually celebrate the time that I had with her. I began to focus on each day that I could remember being with her. I could see that we had a tremendous amount of wonderful memories! We had a great friendship. We loved each other in a Celebratory way. I truly began to see that I was given an amazing gift in life. My sister Joy was a treasure from God himself, and THAT was something to CELEBRATE! I continue to focus on those "Joy-full" days and it is what pulls me through the days that I find myself aching and still missing her terribly. I go right back to the great memories and I think of the gift that I was given. May you find a Celebration in each memory you hold dear. I am sorry that you have to experience this grief, however. I read somewhere that it is the price we pay for LOVE. I have always loved Erin and her family. Most sincerely, Jan
We are so very sorry. Keeping you all in our thoughts.
Our condolence to the family of Erin Reilly.
Erin--you will be sorely missed by all that knew you.
