Eric

And he said:

"Naked I came from my mother's womb,
And naked shall I return there.
The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away;
Blessed be the name of the LORD."

Job 1:21


Eric went home to be with the Lord today. Please pray for his grieving family and our church family.

God is good, all the time. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Heather and children, We are so very sorry for your loss. Holding you in prayer.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day. Psalm 91:1-2, 4-5

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Psalm 116:15

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

We were so sorry to hear about your loss! We are praying for you!
God bless you!

Jessica NicDhòmhnaill said...

Dear Davis Family, y'all are in our prayers! I cannot begin to imagine the grief you must feel at the loss of your beloved father and husband.
All I can say is that the Lord's ways are perfect and He will never leave you or forsake you. He is faithful always. All we can do is lean on His everlasting arms, and look forward to that day when we will all meet together in Glory - face to face with the King of Love.

God be with each of you. Love and blessings from all of us here in Illinois.

Your Sister In Christ Jesus,

Jessica McDonald

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance.."
(Ecclesiastes 3:1-4)

"I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice,
and to do good in his life.
And also that every man should eat and drink,
and enjoy the good of all his labour,
it is the gift of God.
I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever:
nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it:
and God doeth it,
that men should fear before him." (Ecclesiastes 3:14-15)

Heather- I had lost touch with you as I had searched for your blog. It saddens me to no end that I found your blog again by a friend who knew I knew you. I am so so sorry. Words cannot express what to say as we grieve with you. Please know that our thoughts and prayers go with you today and your beautiful family.I will get in touch with you when things settle down.

Stacy McDonald said...

Before I go to bed, I just wanted you to know that I read again the words of Mary Love and I can picture you speaking her words tonight...

"…Farewell, farewell, my dear, till we meet there, where we shall never bid farewell more; till which time I leave thee in the bosom of a loving, tender-hearted Father, and so I rest till I shall forever rest in Heaven."

May the God of peace be with you and the children tonight and give you the rest that comes only from Him.

We love y'all.

Lisa said...

I am trying not to cry as I type this and I know we don't know each other (I have come across your blog from Stacy McDonald's), but I just want to let you know prayers are being lifted up on your behalf from me.
I was just reading all these comments and I am sure there will be many more in days to come and I was thinking "wow...look at this...this family is surrounded in such a huge web of prayer from all over the world".
Rest, knowing that all of us are interceeding on your behalf.

Hugs from Germany,

Heather,
I am so, so sorry for your loss. I know we have only "talked" a few times in cyberspace, but I hold you and your family in great regard. I can't imagine what you're facing, but I want you to know I am covering you in prayer. It sounds like you have a wonderful support system in place, but do not hesitate to let me know if there is any help I can offer you. I am not too far away in Oregon, and would be willing to help in any way I can.

In times of loss I have found it shocking that the rest of the world just keeps functioning when my world is not. Just to let you know that in our family (and many others) we stopped many times yesterday and just cried and prayed for you all. Our regular day did not happen. Even Dan called me from work 3 times to talk of your loss. You are being held up in prayer and even our thoughts are sent your way, as the unsaved often say. It's true. Thoughts of you all day and night.
With much love,
The Dunfee Family

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." ~ 2 Timothy 4:7

I read this quote from St. Augustine and I hope it encourages you as it has me:

"You build up my courage by whispering to me, 'Go ahead and run, skipping into your future. I shall hold you in My arms until you win the prize and then go on holding you forever and ever.'"

May you all be surrounded by the peace and love of God at this time. You are all in our prayers.

Much love,

I was widowed on May 21, 2006 as a 38 year old mother of 8 blessings of God, 7 homegrown and one handpicked. I know the path you walk and all I can tell you is GOD has not left you nor forsaken you. If anything now, according to Isaiah 54:4-5 says the Lord your God is now your husband. His Promises over the fatherless are TRUE and AMEN!

I'm praising God that Eric is now worshipping with my Jeff today! I know you will grieve and miss him. Oh how I know that. I walk with you sister, in this precious to the Lord club of 'widows'.

Prayers that the Lord will hold you and bind up your broken hearts, give you peace and joy you don't understand, and that the tears will flow as much as needed!

your enormous loss. But God is still good-all the time. You were an encouragement to me in your desire to praise God and rejoice in His sovereignty during this trial. I can only pray that I could bring myself to do the same in times of trial. I am crying with you now, in this sorrow. But I am also rejoicing with your dear Eric in his first day face to face with our savior. We'll continue to pray for you. Our children are praying for yours,specifically, also. -kathy

Heather, kids & Friends of Eric,

I was reminded ot this rendition of Amazing Grace by Chris Tomlin as I mourn the loss of Eric.

He will be sourly missed over the coming days, months and years and yet the picture of his chains being removed as he entered the throne of grace is a comfort to me in my loss and pray it will be the same for you all.

The tears will continue to come and yet what a comfort we have as Eric was a recipeint of God's amazing grace

Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)
------Chris Tomlin

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, Amazing grace

My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, Amazing grace


The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine

You are forever mine

DeniseinSC said...

Heather, Denise--another AOH family. I can't tell you sad I am for you and the children, yet I found strength in seeing your verse from Job. You WILL be prayed for in the coming days. I praise God that Eric is with our Lord and Saviour, even now, yet I now how much you all miss him.

We are lifting you up and holding you in prayer. May the God of peace comfort you as only He can during this time.

May He give you strength and courage for each new day.
Children, I pray your hearts will be bound to that of our heavenly Father who is holding your Daddy even now!
Heather, I remember your post a while ago about that big road trip you took to Oregon (?) for a wedding driving through the mountains...I pray that God gives you that kind of strength and determination. I also remember in that same post that Eric was having trouble breathing and I can't help but rejoice that he is now breathing perfectly, in perfect condition, in a perfect place with perfect love. Praise Jesus that you will see him again!
In Christ,

Oh Heather...We just heard about your loss this evening and it seems nearly impossible to find words.

Eric had a stronger appreciation and zeal for life than probably anyone I know. He could accomplish in a week what took most of us a year. He never lacked new ideas or better ways to solve a problem. He had an inspiring sense of spirit and adventure and the drive to complete whatever he set his mind. Yet somehow he always managed to stop and smell the flowers and truly enjoy the world the Lord gave us. He lived more in his short lifetime than most who will have surpassed him in years.

I am glad to have known him. I glad that he was a friend to our family and an example to our children. We are all so sorry for your loss and for the loss to your six beautiful children.

We rejoice in the knowledge that he is with his Creator and the Author of the world that he so deeply loved.

With sorrow and prayers,
The Bateman Family
