My most heartfelt condolences to the Samuelson family and all of Erics
friends. I was saddened by the news of his passing. Please know he is
walking in Gods white light now. I saw Eric this past summer and he was very
friendly and smiling as usual, I'm glad I had the chance to run into him as he
was always kind , helpful and friendly to me as were all the Samuelsons. I not
only consider them good business associates but friends too. Max, Fran,
Stacey and Katie and all of your family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
