Our hearts were filled with sorrow and disbelief when we learned of Erin's death.
She was an amazing person with many, many positive qualities...caring, loving, enthusiastic, bright, and funny. It seemed as if she always "held the door open" for others. We were privileged to go through that opening and share in a small part of her life...many wonderful memories.
We'll miss you.

I am shattered.

Losing Erin is like losing my own daughter, Stacey. My late wife Sharon and I spent years, usually in the company of Bob and Jan, watching Erin and our daughter participate in soccer and basketball for what must have been more than seven years of rainy falls, hot summers and chilly winters.

Erin was always in the right place at the right time. She had a lovely attitude and listened to her coaches and, thankfully, ignored the yells from those of us on the sidelines. Her graceful play and her careful passes were integral to the success of both soccer and basketball teams leading to the back-to-back state basketball championships victories in 1987 and 1988.

Sharon and I prized the memories of these games and the great friendship of the OíBriens. Graduation from Bainbridge High marked the end of our close relationship as the girls went from their teen years off to their respective graduate degrees and their chosen adult responsibilities. But we were happy to hear of Erinís successful marriage and her beautiful family.

I know how the feeling of this terrible loss affects everyone, as my bother also passed away suddenly at the same age of 46. There is no way to adequately express the feeling of extreme loss of a close friend at such an early time of life.

I extend my sincere best wishes to everyone in the family and especially to her husband who I was pleased to meet only a few months ago.

I find no explanation for taking a young person so early in their life: God has some explaining to do! As long as I have known Erin she has been a bright star in this world. I can't conceive of the pain you are going through but I can share in your sadness.
Care for yourselves

On the journey of life, it is a rare privilege to know someone who is so truly beloved as Erin Mead. Erin enriched our lives and touched our hearts with her genuine warmth and gracious presence. Whether Erin had just met you or knew you her entire life, she had a natural way about her that made us all feel welcome and comfortable whenever she was around. Erinís positive attitude and charitable nature reached the lives of so many people, reminding us all how giving of yourself for the benefit of others is defined.
We will forever miss the light in Erinís eyes, her endearing smile and her trademark hugs.

My thoughts have been centered around Erin and her family all week. I am heartbroken at the loss of Erin but wanted to share a couple things. I keep coming back to how she made me feel when we were together. Erin always had a way of making me feel welcome in any situation and on top of that Erin always showed extreme kindness to me, my family and pretty much everyone who was lucky enough to know her. I've known Erin for 20 years and although we didn't spend a lot of time together it never seemed to matter when we would run into each other or meet up at a gathering. Erin was always smiling and ready to catch up on our kids and life. Her life was too short as I am sure we would all agree but I feel so blessed to have known her and will miss her smiling face.
