Please Give Your Hope and Best Wishes for Eric Arvin and his Family

eric-arvinIt is with the heaviest of hearts that I type these words but Eric Arvin will be needing our support and love for a final time. He has been critically ill and the family has just issued a statement through CL Etta, a family friend.

From CL Etta: Good morning. I have learned from Eric Arvin‘s mother that he is scheduled to be taken off his ventilator on Monday a 9:00EST. I’ve had inquiries of how the community can help. This Go Fund Me page was set up a few weeks ago and can be used if you wish to help with funeral expenses. It’s going to be a long heartbreaking weekend for the Arvin’s. Please help to relieve them of this financial burden.

This decision is never one to make lightly and we are always torn about the whys of life and the when do we let someone go. The world has been generous with me in that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and speaking to Eric. I celebrate his intelligence, his humour and most of all, his bountiful heart. He is loved immensely and loves intensely. So it is with the most sorrowful of hearts, I share this news with all of you.

If you can, please help the Arvins during this time. It is possibly the hardest thing in the world to do for a loved one and for it to be your child, I can’t even imagine the pain and grief.

Eric, you are a fabulous soul and I look forward to seeing you again.

(Half Moon Bay: Book Two)

Angel Daniels grew up hard, one step ahead of the law and always looking over his shoulder. A grifter’s son, he’d learned every con and trick in the book but ached for a normal life. Once out on his own, Angel returns to Half Moon Bay where he once found… and then lost… love.

Now, Angel’s life is a frantic mess of schedules and chaos. Between running his bakery and raising his troubled eleven-year-old half brother, Roman, Angel has a hectic but happy life. Then West Harris returns to Half Moon Bay and threatens to break Angel all over again by taking away the only home he and Rome ever had.

When they were young, Angel taught West how to love and laugh, but when Angel moved on, West locked his heart up and threw away the key. Older and hardened, West returns to Half Moon Bay and finds himself face-to-face with the man he’d lost. Now West is torn between killing Angel or holding him tight.

But rekindling their passionate relationship is jeopardized as someone wants one or both of them dead, and as the terrifying danger mounts, neither man knows if the menace will bring them together or forever tear them apart.

Is it Tuesday?

Tomorrow is the last blog stop for Hanging The Stars but I really don’t want to talk about books. God knows, I’ve been drowning in words and all of that this past month.

What I want to talk to you about right now is this month…this very stressful, hard, fraught, nerve-wracking month.

I want you to know that you’re not alone if you’re having a hard time. If you are in a bit of a slump or if your skin is a little bit tight, I’d like you to know you are not alone.

People are going to tell you to take it easy or to breathe or whatever they need to say to you. That’s normal. I get that. We need to comfort.

But I ask you to please…. please… make sure someone hears you when you say you need room to breathe… or a hug. Reach out and don’t let the darkness dim you.

You are the light. Trust in that. We all want to see you. You brighten the world, even if you can’t see it.

*hugs all of you*
