  3. A tragic loss of (2) promising children and a parent. As an alumni of Boston University , Class of 1975, I will be attending the services here in the Atlanta GA area at my church home Cascade United Methodist Church. May they rest in peace.

  4. She accomplished so much in just 20 short years. It’s heartbreaking to think what she could have done with her whole life. I’m a BU alumni myself and wish I could have been half the student and leader she was. Rest in Peace, angel.

  5. The sadness that I feel about the loss of Erin, her brother, and her mother cannot be conveyed in words. These are not losses that will be forgotten soon. They are unbearable, really. These are losses that will be felt for many years, in depths that cannot be filled.

  6. As an alumnae of BU School of Social Work , I am saddened by the tragedy of three loving family members, but continue to study and remember Erin as you continue to live with her memories. Be Blessed!
