Erin’s good friend, Shannon Brink turned 50 today. Shannon, hope you don’t mind my telling this secret to the world! Shannon wrote that she saw the movie, Lady Bird, which was filmed in Sacramento, not far from where Shannon and Erin shared a house a few blocks from Colleen when Wheeler was a year old, so about 1997. It brought back many memories of Shan’s time with Erin in their old neighborhood.
I also heard from Ulysses, one of the young men who had gone to high school with Erin and who came to Erin’s Celebration of Life. Ulysses wrote: “I’ll be reflecting on the impact that Erin had on this world. Merry Christmas to you and your family.”
Steve wrote that he and the boys were skiing in 22 degree weather near Traverse City, MI. It was the opening day of skiing at the resort and they skied free if they brought canned food for the hungry. Steve said that it was especially cold on the side of the mountain facing the wind coming off the lake.
And I was cold in Sacramento’s 55 degree temperature!
Merry Christmas to all.
