We are all very saddened to hear of Eric's passing; he was a family friend for more than seventy years. I would walk with Amanda Isakson,my grandmother, to see Norma and her family. They always had a cold Coke to offer visitors. Our sincere condolences to Ralph and Stanley Anderson and their families in the loss of your brother. He was a humble and fine man.
