Erin enjoyed writing, philosophy, and making music; she wrote the lyrics, "Don't let that light out, I know you want to; things get better than this, because they have to." A vegan for many years, she loved animals. She was smart and sarcastic, with a unique charisma and a penchant for melancholia.
