Yvonne and family,
There are no words that can express how deeply saddened we are by Eric's passing. I saw him just a few weeks ago at my dad's 90th birthday party. I will treasure the conversation that we had in my heart forever. He was like another brother to me. Please accept our deepest sympathy.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
