    Sending my deepest sympathies to Erica’s sons and to her parents. I was so sad to see that she had passed. I worked with Erica for many years up at the hospital, and we always had a fun time. She was such a sweet soul. I pray that God gives you the strength and comfort for the days ahead. Rest in peace, Erica. You will be missed.
