Dear Emily, Becky, so sorry for your loss we are here feeling so bad first your dad and now Erica. There are times in our lives that we question why and how things could happen. From all the pictures I have seen I can tell you girls were very close and truly enjoyed each other and the great pictures of your dad with all of you, so beautiful. Today I had a good cry as to all of this and am so sad this has happened, to you girls and your families. Take care of Erica's daughter she is going to need you and I hope all the best for you and your families. Love Maria
