Nov. 26, 1932
Shirley M. Erickson was born.
The greatest mother any son could ask for!
Due to circumstances we could not control, this memorial is late.
My family and I drove to the Grand Canyon to honor my mom's final wish.
That wish was to be buried at the Canyon, and she was!
My mother, father, and our family member, Molly, was laid to rest forever at the place they loved so much through pictures and shared images.
My mom flew over the canyon twice, but was never able to actually go and see the canyon in person.
We made sure that she will be able to see it every day, forever, along with her husband and faithful friend. Molly.
Hers and her husband's remains were laid to rest, and their ashes were set free on the winds of the canyon, forever to float free.
An extremely sad and difficult time for me to deal with emotionally.
We have honored your wish, mom, now you and dad and Molly will be together, for eternity. Nothing will break you from each other.
I will always love you so much. I can not promise how often we will be able to return to sit and visit with you, but we will make the journey, somehow!
Mom succumbed to liver cancer, and left us on 4.28.2012
My wife was with her and provided real comfort to her as she slipped away from us.
REST IN PEACE MOM!
You deserved so much more from life, and I am so sorry you were not able to be with us.
You memory is faithfully carried and remembered by your family.
Ernest, Sherri, Kyler.
You will NEVER be forgotten!
