Condolence & Memory Journal


Erin Olivia Shigenaga; aka: Erin O Shigenaga! Was born on St. Patrick's Day 1994. Me, being Irish was bound and determined to get an Irish baby out of a Japanese family!! She was the largest baby born at Hoag Hospital that day. I had the doctors wear green derby hats. I had a visor that read: 100% Irish. My husband, Gary, had a visor that read: 0% Irish. Anyone who visited Erin that night was given a Guinness. Erin was a real life leprechaun. She had a smile like a pot of gold. She was such a happy child. Erin never walked anywhere....she skipped. She was very bright and talented. She played four instruments and had a wicked wit. Her whole family misses her daily. We love you, Erin O! Rest in peace baby.

Erin was one of my good friends throughout the middle of our Eighth Grade school year all the way through our Sophomore yeah in High School. We shared over a hundred memories, and have over a thousand pictures of us hanging out. She will be greatly missed by me and my family. The world is just not right without her smile shining so bring. However; I have developed a new beautiful guardian angel. If Erin has taught me anything, it is to love and forgive. She has made her point across, and will never be forgotten as one of the nicest, prettiest, funniest, all around amazing friends of mine. ~I love and miss you, Erin. Rest in Peace<3
