Little Eric died of cancer at age 2 years. As a baby he was a big strapping boy. At the time of his death he was just skin and bones.
He was baptized into God's family on Sept. 9, 1962. As a family we are certain that he is in heaven with Jesus. We will see him when the Lord calls each of us home.
Children are a gift from God. They should be loved, nurtured and cherished as such. The years we spent with him are sealed in our memory forever.
This photo album is a collection of pictures taken during his time here. It has been put together as a gift to his parents by his Aunt Chris.
Note: If you order the book in soft cover, the photos and text you see on the dust jacket will not be included.
I was born in Standish, MI in 1950. I am the middle child of three children. My father was born and raised in Tawas City, MI and my mother in Alpena, MI. We lived in Tawas until I was 10 years old. When I was 8 years old our father passed away suddenly of a heart attack at age 39. In a flash our lives went from happy and carefree to sad and lonely. In 1960 our mother remarried and we moved to Davison, MI Where we were taken in by the Thompson family and loved as their own. They have been very good to us over the years. I married Bob Pocza in 1971 and we have four adult children and 15 grandchildren. We reside in Grand Blanc, MI and are members of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church (WELS).
