From: Jack and Rhonda Swetlishoff
Relation: Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law

God looked around His garden;
And found an empty space.
Then He looked upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you,
And lifted you to rest;
God’s garden must be beautiful
for He only takes the best.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you didn’t go alone,
For a part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.

We’re not sure what Eric’s religious beliefs were at the time of his passing but what we do know is that Religion and politics were two topics that we avoided when talking to Eric. RIP Dear Eric.

Eric, we will miss you! Sharon, we love you. Our deepest sympathy to all of Eric’s family.
