I was saddened in my heart to hear about Eric. He was my buddy. We had a good time together when he was a youth at GBBC. He always made me laugh. I thought of him often while he was away, and I was very proud of the decision he made to serve in the USAF. I will be lifting you all up in my prayers, and I hope you will call on me if you need anything.

Ray ,Jean and Family,I am so sorry to hear of your loss. One of my earliest memories is of visiting Eric as a newborn.I was so impressed with him that I’m sure my mother had to hunt every store until she could find a boy baby doll for me to play with.

Grandma Grace Curles is recovering from a stroke at DePaul hospital. It is breaking her heart not to be able to attend the funeral services. Our hearts and prayers are with you.
