Memories Timeline


  1. Every weekend it was Taco Villa, Mr. Gattis, and Blockbuster. He was the funniest guy I knew and he thought I was funny, which made it even better. We used to argue over who was the biggest Mac Daddy. Erin was one of a kind!

  2. Erin was always spending time at the arcade. One of his favorite games to play was Killer Instinct. We were always at the mall playing that game. He was an amazing and very talented friend. He was always willing to help me whether it be video games or even school work. I will never forget how he used to make me laugh.

  3. I could write a novel on all the hilarious stories I have with my Bub… I could also write one for all of the things he taught me, gifts he gave, and advice he shared. There was no one in this world like him. I love you forever, Bub.

  4. There are not a ton of things I am certain about but I am certain that Erin loved Kendra, Cooper & Finley, his Momma and me. I came with Kendra whether he liked it or not and I’m so glad that I got to experience what it was like to have an “older brother.” When Miss Janey would run an errand, she would tell Erin to “keep an eye” on us-and he would literally put his eyeball on my forehead. My dog bit the crap out of him once when he jumped the fence to pick Kendra up from my house. He shook it off like it was nothing and jumped the fence again instead of using the gate. I will forever miss his giant hugs and how he always made us laugh. Erin was one of a kind and will be missed forever.
