Grieving Eric

This is the video that Randy cut for Eric Peterson's memorial.

I needed to see this. It's helping me grieve.

Losing our friend has all felt so unreal and out of the blue that news of his death was like a bad joke from Eric's comedy routine, or a sick prank he was pulling.

He was here vital and young one day and gone the next. We'll never know what happened.

Randy pulled out boxes and boxes of high school photos from the basement while he was prepping for the video. Eric looked so funny and shiny and alive, all we could do was laugh. It was so unreal.

But the video made it all come home and I finally sobbed, watching it. Not a bad thing. Just the right thing.
