Untimely Death of J. Eric Grimes

On behalf of Eric's Family, we are raising funds for his memorial and his 4 children. On September 1, 2018 at 1:23 PM, Eric quietly passed away with his children and Family at his bedside, the day after we buried his Mother.

Eric was a photographer ... vibrant, funny and witty, incorrigible, encouraging, and a "survivor", as ironic as it may sound! He was  49 years old at the time of his passing, and loved life, music, being with his family and friends, but best of all, he loved capturing the moods of people through his eyes ... the camera lens.

A little over 6-months ago, Eric was diagnosed with leukemia ... Chronic Myelocytic Leukemia. He spent 5-1/2 months in a hospital bed, where he fought desperately to beat and survive this disease.

Any amount will help ... nothing is too small. You’ve shown him love in life, we ask now that you continue to show him (and his children) love.
