It 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.
