Eric's Family:

We are sorry to learn of Eric's passing, but grateful that he knew Jesus as his Saviour and Lord, and is now in God's glory in perfect peace. We remember Eric as a dependable, humble, very likable man with a quiet sense of humour. He served the congregation of Edmison Heights Bible Chapel well as an assistant treasurer in the 1980's. We thought highly of Eric and pray God's peace upon his remaining family. Sincerely Pam and John Goss
