Some sad news about one of our members
« on: December 18, 2016, 09:03:11 PM »
Hi All,

I have some sad news about one of our members.  Bridget Stahl, Eric Stahl's wife wrote to say that Eric passed away on June 20, 2016.   His wife wrote:  "He was a remarkable man and we miss him every day.

He was a great and compassionate man who could listen to my harmonica playing and find something good in it,  Rick, if you could share that with his wife I would appreciate it.  Truly enjoyed my limited relationship with him.

Hi Dan,
I sent you a private message with his wife's email address in it.  I think you have already found it by now.

Sad news indeed. I've probably got some of his harp on one of my hard drives. Might see what I can dig up.

Very sorry to hear about Eric. He was a great guy who had thougtful comments. I enjoyed corresponding via PMs with him. He contributed some great harp fully of personality - going back to the early days of the site.
