Eric couldn't have said it any better.... this was his facebook status on Saturday.
"I wanted to let everyone know that this morning at 9:15am the Good Lord has called my father home to be in his presence, his passing was very peaceful and he was surrounded by his loving family. Jesus said he would prepare a place for us that is free from pain and suffering, and that is where my father has gone, he is now running through fields of Grace."
"I say this to my Dad you have run the race, you have finished the race, and you have kept the faith, and for that we are grateful. The world will be less of a place without you but Heaven will be better because of you. I thank everyone for their prayers and support and ask that continue to keep us in your prayers as we seek to understand God in these trying times. May God Bless each and every one of you"
Please continue to pray for comfort for my family. I'm heading back down to Ft. Walton for another sad day. Life is just to darn short.
