Erin Hogan Curcio
Feb. 9, 1982-Oct. 18, 2013
I can't believe it's been a year since you passed away unexpectedly. When I moved to New Jersey I was always happy that you were the first friend I made in ninth grade at freshman orientation. Through life's twists and turns you were always a great friend, and a caring, giving, loving person. Whenever I think of you I smile. I often think of you and your family, especially today, one year after your life ended too soon. We only live once, so we must enjoy every moment, I believe you did.
