She was born at just 24 weeks on January 25, 2012 in Florida, where her family recently moved from Erie, Pa. Hope's beautiful life was much too short but she touched many lives on her journey. Hope is also survived by a sister, Alexandra and three brothers, Matthew, Allan and Christopher, all of Riverview, Fla. She is also survived by maternal grandparents, Martin and Jeanne Drabic of Erie; paternal grandparents, William and Joanne Riker of Erie; a great-grandmother, Mary Drabic of Erie; aunts and uncles, Martin Drabic of Erie, Daniel and Christine Drabic of Erie, Matthew Drabic of Arlington, Va., Jamie and Kristen Riker of Erie, Geno and Valerie Riker of Erie, and Lisa Riker of Erie; cousins, Riley, Lilly, Owen and Laina Drabic of Erie, Katelyn, Britny, Brianna, Ryan Riker and Brandon Wilson of Erie; also many great aunts, uncles and cousins. A Memorial mass will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, 1553 East Grandview Blvd in Erie. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the March of Dimes and we invite you to join family and friends as we walk in Hope's name at the annual March of Dimes Walk on Sunday, April 29th at Presque Isle State Park.
