I never got to meet her in person but I heard many great things about Eryn from her brother. I hope to one day meet her and all of my brothers and sisters I havent met yet. Just looking at the pictures I can tell that she is a truly amazing special and wonderful person. My deepest condolences to Eryn's family. I hope to see her one day in Heaven

Eryn had a special light about her. She overcame serious trials of life with her tender heart intact. I’m not sure she even understood the miracle she was. She leaves behind a tribe and a family who profoundly feel the absence of her beautiful light. We love you, Eryn “Liz.”
