Fred & Georgia,
That young man will never be forgotten. I think about all the fun Jennifer, Pete and myself had the night we went to the hockey game out in the quad cities. I never laughed so hard. He will always be in my heart.
My heart goes out to all of the family. God bless.

Kelly, Joe and I are so sorry for your loss. We are glad that you brought Eric into our lives. We saw how happy he made you. I loved teasing about my Kelly time. He will be forever watching over you. We love you and we will miss Eric's smile.

Dear Fred and Georgia,

Dave and I are so very sorry for your loss. I had said many prayers for him when told he was in the hospital. I guess God had other plans for him. Please accept our heartfelt condolences.
