Hi Doug. Been a few years. Great hearing from you. Welcome to the site. I just retired as well. Thought about you numerous times through the years. We had a lot of laughs back in the day.

I was at a banquet last week and saw someone that worked with Eric for a number of years. He told me of Eric's passing. I was sorry to hear it. My memory of Eric was that he was a really good guy. Here's his obituary I found this morning:

Eric Nilsson | Visit Guest Book

BARRY COPELAND has left an In Memory comment for MICHAEL MURPHY.
Feb 08, 2018 at 3:33 PM

Mike and I were in school together from First grade - Senior year.  He did like fast cars, but a skill that is probably forgotten was that he could run like the wind. My mom and his were close friends. His dad made me a ceramic Snoopy and dog house for my 11th grade birthday.  I've kept it all these years, but in our last move a few years ago, the dog house was broken. Kind of a silly thing, but I've always loved it.  Mike was a great guy.  I'm like you guys, I think about him when I pass his old house on Fosterburg Road.

Connie: I had a board member suddenly pass away and I have to be at his funeral on Tuesday. I don't know what your plans are, but if you are joining us this week at WBGL, I will not be there until late Wednesday, or possible Thursday morning. What are your plans?
