My heart aches for Erica's family, I met Eric around 30 or more years ago. I met her through the Dental Lab, when I started to work there. Erica had very contagious smile, and was so friendly with everyone. We developed a friendship that will last me a lifetime. My husband John always enjoyed giving her a bad time, but she would come back on him full force. We are honored to call her and Ken our friends. We will miss them at the lab Christmas Party. I loved her Taco soup,no one could make it like your Mom. May they both rest in peace, and may the family fill comforted knowing what special people both Erica and Ken were. They will be greatly missed. Much love to you all.❤
