In looking for information about my cousin Eric Nordgren, I came across the obituary of a young man I do not know named Eric Eustis Nordgren. His beautiful spirit captured me immediately. Although I never knew this Eric, I feel a great sadness in his passing. He was clearly a kind, compassionate, loving soul. I would love to have known him. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

Terri and Gordon, everything we have is only on loan from God. He gives and He takes away. Eric was God's greatest blessing to you. Now he is where we were created to be, in God's presence. My heart hurts for your lose but rejoices in heavens's gain. You are in my prayers. Love you. Denise DeLatte
