ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – When a University of Central Missouri student died in a car crash in early March, it left her family and friends devastated. In the aftermath, Erin Hook’s family set up a Facebook page to honor her life and urge people to pay it forward by doing random acts of kindness.
Erin would have celebrated her 21st birthday Sunday. She and her sorority sister Jennifer Reeder as well a man from Clinton, Mo. named Paul Stankus were all killed after a head-on collision on March 1.
