Eric talks sometimes about his dad (Wayne), how he is ultra-patient, ultra-easy going, ultra-forgiving.
People always talk about how Eric looks more and more like his dad every day.
I have to say, I absolutely adore Eric's father.
Nearly two years ago, I snapped a picture of Wayne on a typical summer afternoon. He was sitting on an easy-chair, surrounded by grand-daughters, reading a picture book to them all. That's a pretty typical scene for Wayne. He's often surrounded by grandchildren. They adore him and he adores them all right back.
I'm sure there are many reasons for this, but I'm pretty sure that one of them has to do with his gentle patient manner.
So, when I see Eric like this, it warms my heart, and the rest of me from my head to my toes.
