Eren was born in Houston Texas on June 3, 1981. Soon after her birth, it became evident she was a special child who faced many challenges throughout her life. She saw the world through different eyes and could find beauty everywhere. She was a loving child who shared hugs with everyone. Her unique personality and idiosyncrasies made her memorable to all. She attended special education classes in the Pearland School District, where the district placed her at the Child Guidance Center, a wonderful day hospital program, for several years. She graduated in 2002. She received HCS services from All the Little Things Country following school and lived with a godmother, Joanna Rankin, for ten years, while maintaining active contact with her family. She converted to Catholicism and was very proud of her religious beliefs. She was a cancer survivor and kept an upbeat attitude throughout her treatments. She came back to live with her parents this spring. She was an avid Texans fan, enjoyed listening to music, playing computer games, and embraced her role as an aunt. She will be deeply missed by her family and all who knew her.
