When life's curtain calls for me
Let it be said, I lived for Thee
This earthly house I'll need no more
So I'll take my bow, someway, somehow
You'll give me wings to fly
Far beyond the vast blue sky.

I pay tribute to my best friend, my sister, my rock. Always there, always willing to listen, to laugh, and to drag u when u need it. Honest, loving and kind. I always knew with certainty she was always a call away. She made every outing an adventure even when we were just hanging out. She never forgot He who made all things possible and you could always feel His presence when you were with her. She loved unreservedly...was uncompromising in her faith....and was a true friend. We always supported each other as we made our way through this life....Her path in this life has ended and we said goodbye on 7-28-2018. I miss u my friend, my sister....sleep well and may His light perpetually shine on you.
The first time I remember meeting sister Erica, was in late 2004, when I was just a teenager who struggled in hard times and came across this church. I was greeted by the Hawthorne family, along with sister Erica, the Dennis family, and the Hunter family as well.
I will never forget the time when she always stood by my side when I was in deep concern with family issues, school, etc. She was like a big sister to me and gave me such big hugs when it was the end of the service.Gentle, loving, and sweet, I felt a great connection to her and to my church family.
Rest in peace and thank you for being with us to the very end.
Erica my sister, my friend, a gem, I thank God for having met you. The bars of flesh has burst wide open and you have taken your flight as a mighty eagle, home at last, cares all passed ever to rejoice.
I will always cherish your memory.
Rev: Sharon Bloomfield
Our dearest Erica has left this earthly home. However, we can rest assured that she's lying in the arms of Sweet Jehovah. Condolences to her family and friends. May God grant comfort to all.
The first candle represents our grief. The pain of losing you is intense. It reminds us of the depth of our love for you. The second candle represents our courage to comfort our sorrow and to comfort each other. The third candle we light in your memory. For the times we laughed and cried and the silly things you did. The caring and the joy you gave. The fourth candle we light for your love. That it will shine always for your family and friends. We will cherish a special place in our hearts that will be reserved for you. We thank you for the gift your living has brought to each of us. We love you and we will always remember you.

I met this most charming and beautiful soul many years ago, found Erica to be so patient and calm, never seemed ruffled easily, her finesse, charm and grace will be permanently etched in my mind. I am so very sorry that when you called to tell me on your last trip to Jamaica in February of this year, that you arranged a ride to come visit me but was disappointed that the arrangement fell through, little did I know that was to come say goodbye! Sigh, my eyes are filled with tears, if only I knew that would be the last time I would have seen you, I will always remember your pretty face and beautiful persona, my family and I are better off for having known you my darling. It pains my heart that you had such a painful journey, I bawled, but now there'll be no more pain! Sleep on my beloved and take your rest. Love you.

To Erica's loved ones, my sincere condolences to you at this very difficult time. We pray for God's peace and comfort for you all. Erica and I were in the same classes at Mobay High from 1st to 3rd form. She had a quiet, humble spirit. She'll be missed. So so sorry for your loss.
Sincere condolences to every family member.. We'll get through this together.
Wow where do I begin. I reflect on our good times of almost 40 years of friendship. From first form until now you were so brave fearless and bold with a determination like no other. Humility was your middle name. Reflecting on our walks home coming down from union street hill.. me, you, Sonya and Pauline then Karlene was added to the group. Many fond memories can’t believe I am here writing this ...your levelheadedness was beyond your years. I am so happy I was given the opportunity to spend a few minutes with you. Your support of my ministry was also awesome. However nothing could top those last few minutes we shared. Thanks Rosie for allowing me in Erica’s caring moment at such a critical time. I will forever live with the hope that you died in Christ and we will all be reunited on that great getting up morning. Rest well my friend until then... Vivia O Haye💕💕🙏🙏
My deepest condolences to Erica's family and friends. You were the most sincere, always thinking about others. You had a heart of gold, you were always just a phone call away you will be missed by your GK Lawrenceville family. A great soul sleep in peace my friend.
I extend my sincerest condolences to the family and friends. Erica has left her smile in our hearts and she will always be remembered with love. Rest in eternal peace Erica.

To Erica’s Family and Friends,
Words are inadequate for me to express my deepest sympathy and condolences to you all.
Erica was the sweetest person anyone could ever meet.
She was humble, Godly, pleasant, honorable, loving, respectful and meek.
She suffered a great deal on this earth but I am positive that God is going to be rewarding her with many stars on her crown.
Pastor Clarke and I will miss you but this is not the end!
Thank God for the hope that you passed with, that although your body is destroyed by death, I am assured that God has a new house for you one not made by hands but eternal in the Heavens.
Family, I am sure you are grieving like many of us but please do not weep as those that have no hope cause we will see her again.
Love and miss you Erica.
May your soul Rest In Peace and light perpetual shine upon you.
We have lost a wonderful friend 🙏💖💔😭
Your crown awaits! Erica you have certainly ran your race well. Always the encourager... always on a mission for God. I won’t forget our 5K walk...or our plans for the homeless ministry...or when you just provided a book of encouragement for my daughter on the spot...you just happened to have in your car.😊 You were truly led by the Holy Spirit and used by God. I thank you for the strength that you displayed, even in those difficult last few months. I have been blessed to have known you and called you friend. I know that God has used you, a powerful Woman of God for His greater glory.
🎶 May the life I’ve lived speak for me, when I’m resting in my grave, and there’s nothing that I can say, may the life I’ve lived , speak for me 🎶
Erica did well. She finished her course with excellence, grace, faith and confidence. Her earthly life book has been completed but her heavenly book has just begun and will never end. Our short years of knowing God ‘s special gem and the impact of her heavenly disposition, strong faith ,love for God and others and her words of encouragement will continue to keep the spark within us until we see her.
To Rosie, Dr.Floyd and all family members; may the presence of God bring you great peace!!
Erica is already resting in perfect peace.
