She continued: ‘Mama was loved by everyone. She was selfless and gave her all to get my sisters and me to 40 activities a week.”
“She brought so much light into the world that we didn’t realize her heart was in so much pain.”
She concluded the tribute: “Mom, I hope heaven treats you better than we ever could. She’s no longer ours, but we’re hers forever.’

Erin’s youngest daughter also spoke and told those in attendance, “My mother was the best person ever. I will always love you, dear mother.’
“I can’t say much because she was so wonderful and wonderful. You were the key to the whole galaxy and the world and the whole country to me.’
“My three favorite things I liked to do with Mom were taking a morning walk, lots of hugs and kisses and cooking because once we were cooking and I spilled flour all over the table and I didn’t get in trouble.”
“Me and my mom are such a great team. Her beautiful eyes glittering in the sun were always so cool.’
‘I will never forget my mother. I love her so much that I even cry at my school.’

The Studio 10 host died unexpectedly last month at the age of 42, sparking wild online conspiracy theories that she was a victim of the Covid vaccine.
But devastated friends have since confirmed she committed suicide after a long and protracted battle over mental health — leaving behind a heartbroken husband and three children.
“I want to share her pain,” a friend said in a tribute. “She hated nothing more than being a burden. I wish she knew it was a weight we were happy to help carry.”
A loving mother and ‘loved her girls without limits’, Erin struggled during the Covid pandemic and hadn’t been her ‘jumpy, energetic self’ in recent weeks.
“I wish we’d found a way for her,” a friend said.
