And so we start another day. The grassroots tributes below bring us much comfort. The Dear Erin video was created by an extremely talented young woman that Erin went to school with at Jane Long Middle School, Emma Raleigh, who took quotes from classmates about Erin and combined them with photos from this website and set them to music.
On Tuesday evening, my boyfriend Garrett DeAtley, a second grader at Erin's old elementary school, called me when I was out walking Willie and Teddy. He invited me to come to his baseball game on Wednesday. The Rattlers usually wear burgundy and black, but you can see from the team shot below that they switched out for the evening. What a handsome group, and their inner beauty (handsomeness) is as bold and radiant as their outer selves.
