My dear friends & family,
  Tonight my heart is heavy and sad for a very dear friend & her two beautiful daughters whose husband died unexpectedly this morning.  Erin Geter, a coworker & close friend surprised her husband Mark with a trip to Las Vegas with 3 close friends this past weekend for his 40th birthday! As we all watched him open his present from his wife and daughters this weekend no one would of thought tuesday morning he would be gone. Mark came home sunday and left monday morning for work in south carolina. Erin recieved a phone call from a local hospital in South Carolina telling her Mark was critical and to get there as quickly as she could, sadly...she didn't make it in time. Mark passed away this morning from what appears to be a heart attack at 40 years old. In this tragedy Mark leaves behind my dear friend Erin and her two beautiful daughters Kennedy(4) and Carrington(1). This is such a huge loss to our CMC- Pineville family, and as we all reach to each other for support I am also reaching to you. I realize it is christmas & we are giving many times beyond our means, but I ask you to take this sweet family into your thoughts & prayers and anything you can do will be forever appreciated. We (the hospital staff) are collecting money & gift cards to help Erin, as she is now a single mother with one income supporting two girls on her own. As a weekender we are not allowed to donate Paid Time Off to her, so we are hoping to raise enough money to help Erin take the time off she needs to grieve & help her girls in this very difficult time. Hold your loved ones tight this holiday season and pray that god wraps his arms around Erin & her family in this very difficult time.
Thank you all so much.

It is hard for me to write anything that would express appreciation for all of you. Whether you've donated monetarily or simply said a prayer for this grieving family your love and support has been felt by Erin.....

I don't even know where to begin. As I sit here, a week has passed of Mark joining Our Lord in heaven. I am truly humbled in the abundance of love and support, and overly grateful for the monetary gifts. A huge financial burden has been eased as I take this time to morn and grieve the loss of Mark. It is very apparent in the response of what a wonderful man he was. Anyone that knew Mark, knew he didn't meet a stranger and he kept a smile on his face. In this difficult time, I am reminded I am not the only one at a loss in this time of his passing. I know that I will never be able to say enough thanks to you all. There is so much I feel that needs to be said, but at a complete loss for the words. I will remind the girls as they grow the LOVE their father had for them and how much he was loved! From the bottom of my heart I Thank You All again for your love and support. Continue to keep us in your prayers as harder times are yet to come.
A Million Thanks and God Bless

As day two of this site being open comes to a close, I am blown away by the generousity I've seen in the last 48 hours. 3,000 views, 180 donors & the number that says more than I ever could....over $15,000 raised for Erin & her girls. The amount of love that you all have shown for this family is truly amazing. I spoke with Erin last night & she has no words for what you all have done for her and her family. She is incredibly grateful to each and every one of you. She said last night she has no idea how she could ever thank everyone who has reached out to her. So I would like to say thank you. You have touched Erins heart in this time of deep sadness more than you will ever know & she will be forever grateful for the love she has been shown.
Tragedy often has a way of making people stop, think & put things in perspective at least for a short time. I ask that each of you hold onto that perspective. Seeing this outreach of love to my dear friend, how much good can be found in people in a time of need has changed me. I am so thankful to somehow be connected to each and everyone of you.

I am totally blown away. Friends, family & coworkers you have opened your hearts and I could not be prouder to call each of you apart of this family that has reached out to Erin. I have raised the goal amount because I believe if we keep this message going we will far surpass it. You all have touched my heart and Erin is incredibly grateful to each and everyone of you. Who will be the person to take us over our original goal of $10,000?!? Keep sharing the love and may god bless each and every one of you.
