An update from Eric:

To everyone who donated and gave their prayers for me and my family thank you. I am overwhelmed with the love and support I've seen. It truly brings me to tears to know that so many people have been touched by Sarah's story. The gifts that you given me and my children have lightened the load that I must bear. It's such a great blessing to know that I can continue to give my children a faith based education and provide them with their daily needs because of your generosity. I know that I will never be able to repay the favor and I know that it is not expected which is why I am so grateful. The words I've read in the comment section are such consolation for me. To know that so many people who barely or don't even know me care so much. Thank you once again for all the love and support.

God Bless,

Eric

My prayers and thoughts are with your Lady and family - those of us in law enforcement are a family and therefore share in your grief and loss - at the holiest part of the Catholic Mass we say the words of a police officer of that time - the Roman Centurion, who asked for a miracle from the lord Jesus Christ and said to the lord - "Say but the word & my servant shall be healed..." in the spirit of that officer, the Lord takes care of us and will take care of your family

Eric I am so heartbroken to hear of Sarah's passing. We are praying so hard for you and the kids during this awful time. I have some precious photos of her when we were roommates, she was so much fun. She was a cherished friend even though we didn't see each other that often we kept in touch. She will be missed greatly. I am so very sorry.
