Finally laying Eric to rest

August 24th, 2010 by alison

I know a lot of time has passed since the holidays. And many of you had expressed interest in coming to the final services for Eric whenever they were scheduled. Well, the time has come. Further details will be posted soon, but wanted to get a date out to everyone who may be interested in attending. So please save the date of September 11, 2010 for services in Buffalo. We will be laying Eric to rest in St. Stanislaus Cemetary in Cheektowaga (Buffalo). We expect the services to be in the early afternoon. I will post more information shortly, but feel free to contact me at ali@aliladd.com.

Hotels

December 28th, 2009 by alison

I am still waiting on a full list of hotels from those that know the area better than I.  I am booked at the Millenium Hotel Buffalo, as is most of Eric’s family.  Many of his friends will also be staying at the Hampton Inn in West Seneca.  When I get a list of more hotels, I will post them.  This should get you started.

tentative arrangements

December 28th, 2009 by alison

 So things are starting to come together. I will update with times once they are scheduled.

Visitation will be on Wednesday evening @ Paul A Kloc Blossom Chapels, 4680 Clinton St. (corner Borden Rd.), West Seneca, NY  (716-668-5666)  [this is a township near Buffalo].  Time is not certain yet, but we expect it to be in the evening.

A funeral mass will follow on Thursday (the church is still being confirmed).

But at least this will allow people to start making travel plans if they are planning on coming.

Our new angel

December 27th, 2009 by alison

For those of you who haven’t heard, my husband, Eric passed away on Christmas unexpectedly.  Many people have heard this news and don’t know what happened.  On Wednesday we flew from Chicago to Syracuse to spend the holidays in Clinton, NY with Eric’s family.  The weather in Chicago was frightful and flights were all canceling, but ours left without a hitch.  Thursday morning Eric was making french toast for everyone when severe chest pains overcame him.  We rushed him to the hospital.  He had had a heart attack.  They we able to reopen the clogged artery (I got to see all the video of the procedure and everything looked great).  After the procedure Eric was doing great.  Feeling wonderful and trying to figure out how to get the doctors to let him still go on our New Year’s vacation.  I went back to his parent’s house to get some stuff for him, and when I returned to the hospital he had developed a bleed.  This is a normal risk of undergoing catherization, especially when they are inserting stents (which they did).  So in the end, they were not able to control the bleeding.  The care he received was wonderful.  The result was shocking to everyone.

Services will take place in Buffalo, NY.  I do not know exact dates yet, but we believe it should be in the latter half of the week.  I will post the specific details here when I have them.

Praying for a Christmas miracle

December 25th, 2009 by admin

Haven’t used this blog much since the last time I was up all night in
a hospital. But I need everyone’s prayers for Eric, my husband. A long
day at the hospital with everything getting worse as the day went on.
Now we need our Christmas miracle.

welcome to the blogasphere

August 3rd, 2007 by alison

I have now officially wasted 24 hours creating both a Facebook and a MySpace page.  Yes, I am a bit behind the times.  I’ve spent years keeping myself away from the blogasphere, hoping certain people wouldn’t find me.  And my fears were well founded…… my first foray into blogging was my wedding website, and it definitely brought up a couple blasts from the past.  But here I am.  And now that I am here, I’m finding it odd that I have nothing to say.
