He passed away on Thursday, January 14th. See Obituaries. I want at this time to express my most sincere and humble thanks to the people of Forest Park who have stood beside me and my family for the pasK27 months. When Eric became 111 in October 1968, It was the people of Forest Pirk who opened their hearts and showed thetrue meaning of human kindness. It was through the efforts of Pastor Roth and the good people of St. Peter's Church that the kidney center at St. Peters Parish House was established which gave Eric the past 2-1/2 years of life and has helped countless others in their fight against kidney disease. Special thanks must go to the fire and police departments who responded so many times. There are no words to express my feelings to Dr. Muekrcke, Dr. Moles, Dr. Lawrence and Marian Sheehan who fought so hard for Eric and will continue this fight against kidney disease. I know that the past two years of Eric's life were not in vain and to the people of Forest Park, I thank you.
