Erin Wall and Richard Strauss

This was planned to run in our 3rd week. But with the tragedy of Erin’s passing, two days ago, at 44, this seems especially powerful now. 

Re “lost a battle with cancer”, on August 29, this is what she said: “I HATE that phrase and I’m coming back and haunting anyone who uses it to describe my death. HATE with a burning passion.”  We will hold her to that promise of “coming back”. Such promise. Such achievement.
