You will be missed

Today I learned a dear friend of mine passed away this weekend.  I have not seen her in a few years, but think of her often.  We met while I was living in Colorado, we worked together in my first "real job" out of college.  She was a wonderful friend and was there for me at my must needed hour.  Most of my best memories of my time living in Colorado have her in them.  From Holiday parties, including Halloween to Christmas cookie party, to gossiping over lunch about work, to all the hours we spent together scrapbooking, to just sitting around chatting. She was a wonderful, beautiful person who was truely an Angel here on earth. 

To my dearest friend, Errika.  You were a beautiful, wonderful, cheerful person.  You are and will always be missed.  God Bless you and your family, as I cannot imagine the pain they feel.  I love you, Eriika!

This was at Eriika's Halloween party in 1999, me as Queen Amidala, Eriika as Marge Simpson, and another friend as a cat.

And, for my 29th birthday, Eriika gave me a Star Wars Trivial Pursuit Collectors Edition.

Dayna! Thanks so much for your sweet message on my blog. It was so good to hear from you--you were one of the last few friends we needed to track down. We have been looking for your information all week, thanks for reaching out to me!

I love this post--it's a very nice tribute to my amazing and dear sister. I know how much you meant to her, and I hope you know it, too.

I have been carrying on the tradition of the cookie exchange. It will be extra special this year.

Love to your family from ours,

My sympathy to you. Know that she is smiling down on you.
