Capt.Flock has lost one of his phlock.

Post by PartofthePhlock »

Hello BNers.

With heavy heart I share with you some sad news.

At 3:50 Saturday (4/9) morning Capt.Flock's father and greatest hero lost his extended battle with cancer. Some of you have had the pleasure of meeting and building friendships with Eric's parents at Buffett tailgates; a true blessing to all.

On Saturday, during one of the saddest times of his life, Eric shared these loving words:

" Even in his last days on earth he showed me that love does conquer all. Love each other, give someone a hug today, smile at a stranger. Try to make this world a better place like my father did."


Sail on Jim.

Sincere condolences to Eric, Nancy and family.
