Hey ladies, (Those of you who 'knew' Erin.)

I'm almost done. I wanted to start a new post for three reasons:

1. So you could look at the book if you want to and make any comments, suggestions, etc. (I CAN take constructive criticism!) I have no idea if this photobucket link is going to work.

If not, PM me and I can email you the album or give you my sign on and password. I don't even want to attempt posting the pics on this thread. Please keep in mind, this is my first effort at scrapbooking but, a lot of love went into it!!

2. To give those that have not posted to her thread an opportunity to do so and be included in the book. I'll check that thread and make the final changes Monday (tomorrow) nite.

3. To do a 'survey' for lack of a better word on whether or not to include Erin's post in the book. I had somebody pm me and say (very nicely) that they didn't feel including Erin's thoughts was appropriate. Others however have said they have thought that it absolutely should go in, because of it's content. (If you haven't read it, please go back to my "with your permission, I'll copy" post.)

So please, let me know.

Hugs everybody,

    This album you have made is beautiful and you are incredible for doing this gift from your heart!!!   I think that you should leave in Erin's post.  Putting her post in the album is like having the anchor that holds everything steady.  This will be really something for her daughter to be able to see how Erin's life touched so many.  Thank you for doing this.

    You have done a wonderful job on the book....Im glad that Kaleigh will have this part of her mom.....I think Erins words will someday be very special to her and for that reason alone I think they should be included in this..

    Thank you for doing this!!!!

    Traci, you are so sweet for doing this for Erin's family, she was so lucky to have a friend like you by her side.

    As far as using her posts, I would think she would want them to see her posts and thoughts throughout her treatment, and how she helped so many others who needed her gentle words of encouragement.

    Wow Traci,

        The book is lovely!!!!!

        How very thoughtful of you, it brings tears to my eyes...first because of loosing such a young beautiful girl, and second because of the love and friendships started and shared here. This is such a beautiful site with so many caring women. I'm amazed over and over again by how many women really care about each other here.

        I think she would want her posts included, like Diane said they were her thoughts thoughout her treatments and journey. Beautiful.....

        Hugs to you  KLynn xoxo

    Hi Traci,

    I did not get the opportunity to "meet" Erin. But I went and was able to read her posts and see how even at the end, she reached to comfort others. I was able to see the pix of her and her beautiful daughter who will grow up not knowing her mother. This is not right. It is so sad. What a beautiful thing you have done for her family. Someday, her daughter can read those posts and realize just how caring and thoughtful her mother was. She can read how her mother bravely faced cancer. It did not take away her spirit.
