Donna & Family,

Very sorry to hear of Eric's passing. I remember him well from years ago. Much to young to leave us. So enjoyed seeing the house all lit up at Christmas time.
Rest well young man!!

So sorry to hear of the sad news. Reconnected with Eric through Facebook a few years ago. We went to high school together and I remember him as one of the nice guys. Obviously he carried this through his life. No longer in the townships but always vowed to visit his Christmas display. My condolences to the family. May the memories you hold dear, warm your heart and dry your tears He was loved by many people and because of this, his memory will live on.
