Pray for Erin

Mom and I wanted everyone to know that last night at about 4:00am Erin’s battle ended. It was very peaceful. She is now at the Throne of Christ enjoying her heavenly feast with Dad, Grandpa and so many others, maybe even us.

Erin’s wish was to be cremated so we are taking care of those details and will likely take some time before planning anything else. We will be sure to post once we’ve sorted out the details for a service.

Another wish of Erin’s was that her tumor be donated for research. We will be signing off on slides from her first surgery to be sent to Sloan Kettering in NYC for the Small Cell Carcinoma of the Ovary Study (link to their site below). Also, there is a link to the recent study at the Small Cell Ovarian website below.

    One of Erin’s favorite passages:

    2 Corinthians 5

    Awaiting the New Body
    For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

    Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

    Anna and Karen, my thoughts are with you and I wish peace to your family and especially to Erin, the bravest young woman I ever had the pleasure to know.

    Karen and Anna, I was saddened to read your message this afternoon. Erin was a favorite person of mine even across the miles. I so enjoyed having her visit us years ago. But even more I loved how she built our farm website out of skill and understanding of my passion with the Morgan horse. She was a remarkable young woman who loved both of you and posted to me about her wonderful sister and mom. Take care and I am so proud to have known Erin.

    Erin’s life and her faith were an amazing testimony. Karen and Anna, my love is with you. May you have peace and comfort in God’s arms.

  16. Rae Parmeter Says:

    Praying for the love of God to surround you and your whole family. We know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord and the hope and certainty of heaven give us all the knowledge that this is not the end. Erin lived her life to honor God and her courage is an inspiration to so many. Love to all.

  17. Janie and Terry rohlin Says:

    Erin’s fight is now over! She fought a hard battle and now has won. She is with our Father and comfortable. May God give you and Anna strength as you are left behind. She was a wonderful woman. Blessings to you.
