Even though I did not know this young woman, one with many talents and a loving family and friends, her passing hits close to home. My son graduated from KMHS in 2006, and although he is alive and healthy, anything is possible to alter this. Health and safety are not guaranteed to anyone. I do wonder why she passed at such a young age, leaving family and friends to grieve indefinitely. As a parent, these are always concerns. One can take solace that Ms. Erin lived her life fully.

It's not an article, it's an obituary.

John Jack it's called an obituary, if you look at most, they do not list the cause of death. Praying for this family during this difficult time, May God comfort you with his Love and Grace!!

To inform the people who knew her how and when they can pay their respects. If you are close enough to her to know her cause of death, you should be able to contact a friend or family member. It's not their job to put the details of a young girl's death on the internet for whoever might be curious.

WOW maybe its not your business! BTW she died of a brain aneurysm while shopping with her mom. She was a beautiful person with a beautiful sprit. We pray for the Matthews family and friends. Maybe you should also instead of being ignorant to a family's grieving.
