"Today is my beautiful nieces birthday. It is a sad and happy day. Sad because I miss her so, and happy because I had the honor to her being my niece and cherish the memories. She loved her birthday and I miss calling her and wishing her happy birthday. Hearing her laugh and talk about what was going on.

"Our Beloved Erika has gone to a Higher Place to continue her Journey in Spirit.  She will always be with us in our memories and in our Hearts.

One of my favorite memories is when I picked Erika up at Sunshine House in Berkeley.  I couldn't remember how to get back down the hill. Erika, 3 or 4 yrs. old in the car seat, pointed which way to turn at every intersection. She directed me back to Nancy's apartment successfully.  I have respected her sense of direction ever since.

Another cherished memory was when her Mother was diagnosed with cancer and needed full time care.  Erika walked out of her life in New York and came home to care for her Beloved Mother to the end. She loved her Mother beyond words to express as Nancy adored her Beloved Daughter, Erika, as well.

I hold and cherish memories and Love for you both in my Heart of Hearts as I believe your Journey continues together in a Higher Realm in God's Divine Embrace.  Beloved Ones, Erika and Nancy, my Love will endure for you into Eternity."

"Erika, my dear sweet, beautiful friend you where the kind of woman I'd Marry with no doubts in my mind that you'd the one I'd want to have by my side in this world as I'd love, respect and protect your heart with every step we took together.

You where intelligent, gorgeous, funny, sincere, helpful and had a really wonderful sense of humor that will never forget as long as I live.

(She'd say: Hey Sherwin What's Upper!!! I Loved When She Said That)

I thank my buddy Scott Lawrence for introducing me to such a great young lady.

I wish that her passing on was not true but in the wake of this terrible reality that her Family and Friends are taking on all I can say is that it was an ultimate honor to have met such a wonderful woman as...

"Just wanna say if it wasn't for my good friend Scott back in college days, I wouldn't have met this beautiful person. What I can remember about her is that she was easy to get along with, straight forward with her thoughts, very supportive with her friends and family and knows how to have a good time among close friends, anywhere we hangout at, she is the kind of woman you can enjoy her company and have good conversation with.
Erika hun, you will surely be missed, just wish I had more time to get to know you as a beautiful person that you are; sure miss our old hangout gang, you, me, Scott, Glenn, Sherwin and a few others who role with us every now and then. RIP luv."

"I was deeply saddened today to learn that my very first childhood best friend passed away. Erika McCurty was my very best friend when I was three years old and living in the Bay Area. We met each other at Sunshine House when we were going to the Montessori school in the Berkeley hills. She was so fun and and had the most amazing and infectious smile. We kept in touch with one another over the years like pen pals, only seeing each other a handful of times, which I fondly remember involved the buying of stickers and taking the bus to her favorite shops. Years went by and we lost touch after high school. After friending numerous Erika McCurty's on Facebook, I found her. We exchanged numbers and I was quickly dialing...we talked a long time that night, giggled and laughed. It was so wonderful to hear her voice and we had lots to catch up on. We agreed that we would try to see one another soon and sadly we never did, just birthday posts and comments on Facebook here and there. I completely regret not seeking her out and making it more of a priority. Her passing pains me deeply and I can only imagine how hard it is for family and close friends. The moral of the story is don't wait, there may not be a tomorrow, you may not have another chance, so say what you need to say, do what you need to do, be good to the people you love. Rest in peace dear sweet Erika."

"My heart is broken right now. I want to send prayers to the family, Auntie Sally, Auntie Mary, Grandma. . .I know this isn't easy at all. She was such a joy to be around and always a listening ear. She was my go with the flow friend and I loved that about her.

I am grateful to have gotten the time that I did with her in Dallas. She was a high school friend and was always the same Erika. We share over 20 years of friendship and she never once changed. That's what you call genuine. We are going to miss you E.

You have touched a lot of lives and friendships that go back forever. I'm praying for the family. She loved you guys soooo much. I felt like family just hearing how much she loved you guys. Thank you for setting up a page for us to celebrate her friendship and send prayers for strength. . . We are really really really missing you Erika.
