  1. Lisa and Peter, I am so sorry to hear about Erin. I remember the days of our younger years. What times we had. As life progressed we lost touch. But as always when the good or the sad enters our lives those cherished memories come flooding back. Uncle Leo and Aunt Evie, such robust people. Your brothers Daniel and Michael always smiling. Erin such a beautiful young lady. I send my deepest condolences, and fondest memories. My love goes out to you both. My prayers will be shared, and we are better people for having the times we all had. God Bless your families.

  • Peter and Lisa… I am heartbroken to hear of the passing of Erin, a wonderful woman. Many heartfelt, warm memories I cherish of all of us in our younger days. She and Danny flipping on and off of everything, so close they were, and now they are again together w/ Michael and your Mom and Dad. Such a lovely family. Time goes so quickly, I can blink my eyes and see us all again in the memories of our childhood, such wonderful times we had. My prayers to you both and your families. May God continue to Bless you and know how often you have been and will continue to be in my heart, my thoughts and my prayers. Much love, Cousin Margaret T. Coughlin
