Eris was my oldest sister. I am the youngest of the family that now includes only my brother Garland and my sister Rima. We are so very sad that she is no longer with us. She was so sweet and loving, and always made others feel loved. But our sorrow is for us, those she left behind, because she is now with her Lord Jesus Christ in heaven, where there is no sickness, pain, or sorrow. She is now dancing on streets that are golden.

She made such a difference in the lives of so many people. Just by knowing her, she made us better. She deeply loved her family, her husband, her children and grandchildren, her brothers and sister, our dad, and had a special relationship with our mom, whom she and Robert personally provided for after dad died years ago, not because she had to, but because she wanted to, right up until mom went to be with the Lord just a few years ago.

Mom said she wanted to see all her children in heaven, and I believe that she was waiting there on Sunday to greet Eris with open arms.

Thank you Lord, for giving us Eris for a while. She was such a wonderful example and such a special gift to us.

Uncle Robert, Angela, Amanda and Robert,

I just want to express how sorry I was to hear about Aunt Eris. I know that we were not really related, but you both had such a special relationship with my parents, Lee & Bobbie. Growing up, my brothers and I always called you our uncle and aunt. I remember your visits around Christmas and New Years and the other gatherings of the Duke Power Co. employees. Aunt Eris was always so upbeat and happy. She was the life of the event and we kids couldn’t wait for her to get there. God bless you all.
Love, Teresa Ennis Donovan

Condolence from Pat Christie on October 17th, 2006 12:00 am

Uncle Robert,Angie, Mandy and Robbie,It is so wonderful that during my lifetime, I have been blessed with such great family and friends that have made such an impact on my life. My Aunt Eris was definately one of those people. You know, I don’t even think I ever even saw her with a frown on her face.From the time I was just a kid until now, she was always smiling and seemed so happy. I know that it was from all the love she had in her heart.I will miss her so much as all of us will, but I know we will see her again along with Grandma who she loved so much. I thank the Lord so much for blessing us with her presence in our lives. Please know that you all are in my prayers….I love you and know that I am here for you, God bless you, Pat.
