June 4, 1984- APRIL 5, 2014
Erica Paul was my dearest and longest friend. We were born twenty days apart and shared almost everything, from Jewish Pre-school to Gratz. Erica and I helped to celebrate each other as we became Bat Miztvahs. She loved to chant the prayers of the Shabbat service so much that she would sing them years later just for fun. During college Erica excelled in her studies and enjoyed linguistics. She studied abroad in Italy and came home speaking Italian. Erica was always the charmer and never shy. She was kind, caring, thoughtful and supportive. Erica came to help whenever asked and without question. Erica had a way of bringing the excitement of life alive and having a great time. With her, there was never a dull moment. I am so thankful to have had Erica as a friend all of these years. I love her and will miss her forever.
