On January 27, 2011 Eric Merkley was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. An aggressive cancer that we hope and the doctors to this point seem confident that is contained to one spot on his leg. Prognosis is good. Treatments and recovery will be long and painful.

Dare Devil Eric

Part of Eric's Make a Wish was a certificate to sky dive in Moab.  Well we were able to have a lot of fun this weekend. 
Eric and Todd getting ready to climb in the plane


If I had not seen the video I would have thought that he was getting sick to his stomach, but he is not, he is blowing a kiss!

Soft Landing...

Then we hiked to Delicate Arch in the evening.

Eric decided to do some rock climbing
Dave came out of the cave not expecting to see a leg :)

On Top of the World

This was at a look out over Dead horse point

 This was such a fun weekend.  Cherished memories.  The Daredevil in Eric is really coming out strong.  He does not want anything to hold him back.  I was asked on the jeep ride if it bothered me that he climbed up on top of those rocks, and there is no way I would try to set his limits.  This world sets to many limits on all of us.  Eric is the master of his destination and will set his limits..... the SKY!
