This memorial website was created in memory of Eris Ritchie, 80, a faithful husband and father, devoted Christian, entrepreneur, and civic servant. He was born on April 18, 1935 and passed away on January 17, 2016.
"It is with a very heavy heart that I pay tribute to Mr. Eris Ritchie. He influenced my young life, as well as so many others, in such a positive way from being our band director to being a devoted church member. I remember the hard work and determination he had to take the horrible screeching noises coming from our band instruments and turn them into music. He taught us that practice, determination and perseverance pays off. Anita, I pray that you and your family will be strengthened and comforted by God's love."
"My heart is sadden today & breaks for Anita. Eris & Anita Ritchie have always been great role models, with Christian values, that have always believed in & been a huge part of Cisco. My prayers for this beautiful family, may God comfort you in the days to come. Jo Nell (Wheat-Maples) King"
"To the family,
Though I don't know you personally, please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. When I have lost loved ones in death, I have found comfort from the promises found in the bible. We see God has promised that we can see our loved ones again.
Acts 24:15-" there is going to be a resurrection." God has the ability to bring back those that have past away in death. The bible says that " with God all things are possible." We can trust God will fulfill the promises he makes.
Please visit jw.org for more on the hope for the future."
