Erik Alsaker was a wonderful son, brother, cousin, uncle, nephew, and friend to all who was taken from us too soon. On the night of March 21st Erik was riding his bike in Gilbert, Arizona when he was struck by a hit and run driver and later passed at the hospital. The Alsaker family would appreciate any and all donations to go towards the cost of final arrangements. No donation is too small. All prayers, thoughts and condolences coming their way are appreciated and needed during this difficult time.
Here is an excerpt from Erik's sister Karlee and brother Troy as they learned about the news,
I wish I could sleep, then wake to know this has only been a horrible nightmare. Knowing that I will never see this smile, hear your laugh, or hear your voice ever again is something I can hardly stand to bear. I wish I would have known I would never get a chance to see you again when I saw you last week. I would have hugged you longer, I would have told you I loved you. My life, and our families lives, will never be the same without you in it. I will love you always.
My friend, my heart is strewn about the floor in a million pieces. I could only dream to bring you back to help me put it back together. There is nothing in the world that can take the pain away of loosing you. You had yet to meet your Nieces, although there is no question in my mind they would have loved you with every ounce of their beautiful souls, as you would have them. My son asks about you all the time too and it pains me deeply that he will never have the pleasure of your company again. My dogs even felt the heartbreak in the air as you had also such a positive influence in their lives, as you have every life that you have touched.
I'm really not sure how to proceed forward sir. I've never cried this hard in my life as I've never lost someone so close to me. If you could give me some guidance from above I would greatly appreciate it. You will never be forgotten dude, the metal music will always play on and "Uncky Erik" will always be in conversation. I love you my brother, until next time...
