I hope there was some joy in her life at some point, but it seems she had a tough ride for a large part of it. I'm feeling so sad for her.
I really don't know how Stern lives with himself. Not one ounce of sincerity about him as he makes a huge joke out of these poor souls revealing their tormented lives. Yes, they chose to do so, but that doesn't mean his attitude or demeanor was morally OK.
Anyway, didn't mean to divert. RIP Erin.
