Eric's Birthday

I like to keep my posts upbeat, and informative, whenever possible.  I'll try to keep it that way today.

On May 30th, eleven years ago, the world lost a great human being. He was intelligent, talented, athletic, spiritual, kind, and one of the best people I ever knew. He was my son. He passed away at the age of 31, way before he should have. An autoimmune disease dubbed PNH, for lack of a better term, claimed his life. PNH is a bone-marrow affliction where the marrow cannot produce viable blood cells. The platelet cells are the clotting cells, but instead of clotting in a PNH patient, they clump, thus getting hung up in the liver; and consequently destroying the liver. Enough said.

Today is Eric's birthday. He would have been 42 today. He's gone but not

Happy Birthday, Eric. I love you now just as I always have, and I will always love you.


  1. Happy birthday to both. Your daughter is 12 days older than mine.
