Dear Joss, Christie, Nicholas and family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of uncle Eric. I spent many wonderful Sundays on the farm playing catch and basketball with him and my dad. He always put up swings for us in the maple tree beside the house. I loved when he played hide and seek with Heidi. I always thought he was super cool driving up the lane on his motorcycle. He gave me so many wonderful memories; he will be greatly missed. He was always smiling and laughing. My deepest condolences xo Shannon
