I just discovered this branch of the family on my fathers side, being second cousins once removed, but I just had to share that my 7 year old Grandson is named Axel !  The name continues on in the family.   I am so sorry for your loss.

Dear Marty and family,

My sincere condolences.

It’s funny how the world can offer moments to remind us it is really small. Meeting Eric and realizing his family was all of you was one of those times. I will remember the time I spent with him in West Chester as a gift. He always had a serious face when carrying out his responsibilities but when we would talk of family, childhood or other things he love, his smile would fill the room. It is his smile I think of when I have snd continue to think of him.
