My heart, like so many others, was shattered this morning when I learned that Green Turtle Cay’s Eric Sawyer, passed away unexpectedly last night.
Eric was the most joyful soul I have ever known. He was kind and funny and gregarious, and had more friends than any of us could count.
He kept careful track of birthdays and hand-made cards for family and friends. With his funny Facebook photos and comments, and updates about his favourite TV show, “Girl meets World”, he made us laugh.
Eric was a long-time Special Olympian who trained and competed in both bocce and track and field. He loved to travel, and just this past week returned from his annual Buddy Cruise.
As I’m reminded every time I log onto Facebook, Christmas is exactly one month from today. If you’re in Abaco and you’ve got holiday shopping to do, be sure to stop by the gift shop at Every Child Counts in Marsh Harbour.
