Dear Lynn and family,
I am so sorry to have read of Eric's death. I always enjoyed him for his easy manner, his warmth, his good nature, his personable presence.
It was fun seeing him at YHS and in our Town Landing neighborhood when he lived here.
[We have been away, so I am just now reading of his passing.]
Hope the visiting hours and his service offered you some comfort and peace.
With love and gratitude for having known him,
