Condolence & Memory Journal


It was with much sadness that I learned of Erin's passing. She was a beautiful woman...both inside and out.
I met her over 40 years ago and we remained friends until her death. Because of my friendship with Erin, I was introduced to her parents as well as her five sisters. What a great family! Erin was a classy lady with a warm and kind personality and great smile! I will miss her dearly. I am so glad I got to know her. God bless Erin and may he bring strength and peace to her family during this difficult time.

To the "Gardner Girls" and all their family members,
I am devastated to hear of our loss of Erin. As her oldest cousin (5 months older), I have a lifetime of memories of her from Christmas celebrations in Belton, vacations in Carrizo Springs and as a freshman year roommate shared with her at the University of Texas. As adults we stayed in touch through the joys and tears of our lives. In our later years it was Facebook and email that connected us. I will miss her and love her forever. It is a testament to her character that so many people in San Antonio and Texas will have felt her touch through her volunteer work even if they never got to know her. Thetis Kathleen Bragg Wright

My wife Priscilla and I send our heartfelt condolences to your family. There are so many memories I can think of about our families and Carrizo Springs. Some of the earliest I remember are their couples club remember those! And swimming in your huge cement swimming pool! I always felt so welcome in your house, and it was so different from any other house in Carrizo!! I was touched hearing about Erin's passing because it brought back so many memories of our growing up together. And who could ever forget Erin's orange convertible!!! God bless you each, Michael Power

Erin was a wonderful person. She, her mom and dad were some of the first people I met when I moved to San Antonio. My dad and I saw them often when we were in carrizo on business and thetis, her mom, often had us over for lunch and Erin would come over to join. Special memories for me. Her mom and dad were so nice to me as was Erin. They all blessed my life. I send my heartfelt condolences to the family. I know she leaves many wonderful memories. God bless. Duke Dresser
