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.

He will land in SL on July 22. The really cool thing is, he entered the MTC with 2 other young men and went through the language lessons together, then flew to Sacramento together. They will all walk off the plane together on their journey home. What an incredible journey they have been on together and I am sure they will remain great friends through life.
I truly look forward to where the road will lead these young men, more particularly Eric... Of Course. They have their whole life ahead of them. I know Eric is very anxious to get his schooling lined up.
The first thing on his agenda is "Get a phone!" .. Okay, first he needs to hug me! :)
His mission report will be on July 27 at 11:00am at our chapel:
LDS Chapel/ Elk Ridge 3rd Ward
259 E Alpine Dr.
Elk Ridge UT 84651
If you can make it, we would love to have you join us!
