Lora, It has been many months since I picked up Erika’s book because I was so sad after reading it. She was such a special person. But something drew me to it last night, because I was thinking of her passing around this time, that I thought to pick up the book again. This time I read her blog and laughed and laughed about so many things she wrote about. I realized as time has passed that God puts very special people on earth for just a short time because they are here to teach us very important things about life. Erika was that person. She taught us to laugh in the face of adversity, be courageous and brave and to appreciate the time we have no matter how short. She taught us to accept the love and support of our family, friends and even strangers wanting to help. She touched so many lives and made every one a better person. You must be so very proud of this wonderful person you brought into this world and that her writings still help and touch a lot of lives. I will now go to that book in time of need to remember that life is always worth living, to live it with humor and love and to always help people in their time of need. I want to thank you for making sure this book got published.
