On behalf of myself and the Milton Baptist Church I want to express our condolences and prayers to Eric’s Family and Friends on his passing. We pray for his family who are expressing sadness at his passing and His hope to give you comfort and joy even during these moments. We have appreciated him as well within our ministry, for he was a good singer and he started to learn more of the hymns to play during a few services and meetings which he enjoyed. We are praying for his family and friends as they seek comfort and peace at this time as well, The Lords blessings and our prayers are with you.
My sincerest condolences to Eric’s family…I knew Eric most of my life…We were classmates in Milton school…Later in life we hung out a lot,played broomball on the same team,went to rock concerts,parties in our backyards ,camping trips at Ponhook…You always drew a crowd with your singing and guitar playing …Many years of good memories that I will cherish…R.I.P. my old friend.
It has taken me a number of days to be able to sit here and write condolences to my Aunt Rona, Cousins Gerry and Ted as well as Eric’s children. The disbelief that first hits, shock and the sadness of loss. Memories of the times we shared as children, playmates and cousins have been circulating in my mind. I shake my head because it is still difficult for me to accept that he is no longer here to chat to or get a hug from. I am so glad that in his life he was able to do the many things that he once talked about. I loved you and I miss you already.
Bill and Anna Cox
Ted, Sherri and family
Our deepest sympathy in Eric’s passing.
Donna and Dale Peverill
So very sorry to hear of Eric’s passing. I spoke with him shortly after he became sick. One thing he said to me when I expressed sadness that day was, “I’ve had a good life.” May he be at peace and may those left behind be comforted by memories , music and good times.
I was saddened when my Dad told me today of Eric’s passing. I spent a lot of time at his house growing up as I was close friends with Jessica. My condolences and thoughts to Jessica and Ryan.
