Carol,
Your story really moved me. I have to agree with all your friends who found Eric's secular funeral most heartfelt--I've always felt that religious mumbo-jumbo detracts from solemn or joyous (ie. weddings, etc.) events.
For a long time, I've told people that if I were to die young, I would want to go doing something that I loved. From what I've read about Eric, it sounds like that's the way he went. I realize that that's not much consolation for you and the others he left behind, but there should be some comfort in knowing he had a good (albeit short) life.
I truly feel your pain. You are strong and brave.
Keep up the fight,
Javier
