Erica was a beautiful, spirited, passionate and compassionate young lady who loved animals, cherished her friends, adored her brothers, respected her grandparents and wanted only to live and let live and enjoy life on her own terms. She was a talented artist, writer and jewelry designer. She had so much to live for but for some reason never felt good enough about herself. She was a bit of a rebel with a huge heart. She was the most generous person I know.
