On the afternoon of June 22nd, Erin Brenneman, manager of the Hungry Heart Bakery, was struck by a hit & run driver in the Montavilla neighborhood. She was rushed to the ER with life threatening injuries, & after surgery, remains in critical condition. If you've been to the bakery, we're certain her smile brightened your day; she's truly the heart of our little shop, & we're committed to making sure that she has the funds to recover from this devastating accident. Any help is appreciated. ❤️

Hello again everyone,

This is Jesse, Erin's brother. Thank you again for all that you have done and continue to do--your generosity is extraordinary. And thank to those of you who were able to make it to the memorial celebration in Montana. It was a wonderful memorial, worthy of Erin and her incomparable spirit, made so by all who attended.

I wanted to announce the finalized details for the Portland service, which will be held in a week:

It will be held on Wednesday, August 16, at 6pm in Glenwood Park in Portland, Oregon. All are welcome. There will be lots of time for group sharing and a communal cork board for posting anything that reminds you of Erin--quotes, photos, stories, art, poems, etc... After the service, we will continue to celebrate Erin with dinner, desserts, and non-alcoholic drinks. You are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair, unless you don't mind sitting in the grass.

The Facebook info for the event is here, and we would appreciate you letting us know if you can make it:

We hope to see many of you there. Thank you for your love of Erin and all that you do to keep her spirit alive.

Celebrating Erin

Hello, everyone. This is Jesse, Erin's brother, again. I want to let you know about the upcoming memorials planned to celebrate Erin, so that you can join us if at all possible.

There will be a memorial held in Kalispell, MT on the afternoon of Sunday, July 30th.

There will also be a memorial held in Portland, OR on Wednesday, August 16th.

All who loved Erin are welcome at both memorials. Exact location and timing details will follow soon.

It is a terrible thing to have to memorialize someone so young and so dear to us all, but we hope that you will join us in making these events, and the following weeks in general, a celebration of her life and enduring legacy of love, joy, humor and service.

And, again, on behalf of all of us in Erin's family: your ongoing support of us and Erin is so moving and humbling. Thank you for everything you all have done; most of all for how much you love Erin.

Love,

Jesse

Hello everyone. This is Jesse, Erin's brother. We are sad to say that Erin passed away early this morning. Obviously this is not the outcome any of us wanted, but rest assured that she was at peace, in no pain, and surrounded by friends and loved ones. The medical care she received was truly top notch and we have no doubt that she received every shot and opportunity possible. This is heartbreaking for us all, but she is well, and we will be too.

Your generosity and support through this terrible situation has been truly humbling, and we cannot say how moved and grateful we are. The funds collected here will be put toward Erin's medical expenses and end of life costs, with more info to follow. Please check back soon for updates regarding memorial services. We hope that you'll join us in mourning our collective loss and celebrating Erin's extraordinary life.

With love,

Jesse and the Brenneman family

Your love & prayers continue to offer comfort during this process, & you have our endless gratitude for all the support so generously given. ❤️
