To T.J and Erin's kids . I was Erin's boss at Denny's and I called her little mama .
It's still hard for me to grasp that she is gone but she is with jesus and he is taking care of her

I am in shock reading this, Erin was such a sweet soul. Whenever my Brother and I would go to Denny's, we would request Erin as our server. She had an infectious smile, and would beam with pride as she talked about her children. Erin, may you rest in the arms of Jesus, and may your family find peace in knowing how you touched the lives of everyone you met.
