Wednesday, April 21, 2010

This is Brian, Lori's brother-in-law (Kristi's husband). Eric went to be with our Lord earlier today. Eric was always so excited to be serving our Lord and today he went to be with Him. Please keep Lori, Zach, Maddie and the entire family in your prayers as they grieve the loss of a great husband, father, and most importantly, servant of Christ.

Lori asked if I could make the posting tonight as I'm sure you can understand she is overwhelmed right now.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. Details of visitation and the funeral will follow. Lori is still trying to get a hold of some individuals and make final arrangements.

Thank you for speaking on behalf of the family, Brian. My eyes are full of tears right now. Tears of loss for Lori, Zach, and Maddy and tears of joy for Eric who is now with his Heavenly Father and no longer trapped in his earthly body. You are all in my prayers tonight and in the weeks and days to come.

Lori, Maddie and Zach
I know we haven't seen you all in quite a while..but today I am feeling your hurt and wanted to let you know that we will most certainly hold your family up in our prayers. Eric was a wonderful man and led a valiant life...the fact that we have the hope of a reunion only slightly lessons the pain you feel now but we are sure God can heal your hearts with time...Your family has and is an inspiration to so many others...God will continue to bless you and I know Eric is proud of you all. We will miss Eric, I wish we could have known him better. All our sincerest sympathy..Eric, Karrie, Autumn, Kaylee and Braden VanHam
