The Daily Echo: Remembering Jak….. April 23, 2017

April 22, 2017

April 22, 2017 our family had to let another family member return to heaven. Jak our toy poodle had been apart of the family for over 5 years. A few years ago Jak lost his beloved Bianca and life was not quite as fun after his “girlfriend” passed on. That didn’t deter Jak from his daily “happy dance” and always on his perch at the top of the couch. Jak was the leader of the pack (the other 3 toy poodles) but rarely did he ever have to put them in place. He gently and quietly was the leader of the other ones. His heart was always full of love and his “momma” Inger was his everything. He would take every chance he could to sit in her lap and then and only then would he show those teeth to the other dogs trying join him. He wanted her all to himself. Over the past few weeks he began to get sick. Liver problems, then diabetes. It seemed as though he had turned the corner and Monday-Wednesday our little “happy boy” was back. He was spinning around, licking everyone in sight and we felt relief. I think Jak wanted us to remember him with a smile, and him at his best. I left town Thursday night and Jak had began to stop eating again. When he did eat he couldn’t hold it down. Finally yesterday morning Inger had to take her little “love” Jak to the vet….. somehow she knew it would be her last ride with him. Today’s echo is for Jak and all the wonderful dogs that enrich our lives. How blessed we are to have these wonderful companions who never care about anyone but US….. There is an empty hole in our hearts now, but I believe Jak moved on to bigger and better things and we will get to watch his “happy dance” as he spins once again.

The Daily Echo: His “Love” and “Life” Live On. Echo Hall of Fame: D. Grant Lane…. April 20, 2017

The Daily Echo: His "Love" and "Life" Live On. Echo Hall of Fame. D. Grant Lane…. April 20, 2017 from Dr. Eric Lane on Vimeo.

Another inductee into The Echo Hall of Fame…. Another Hero of mine. My older Brother Grant passed on to bigger and better things February 18, 2011. Not even 50 years of age he accomplished more in his time than most could do in many life times. On today’s echo I try to depict the unconditional love of a Husband, Father, Pa (Grandfather), Son, Brother, Uncle, and friend. Anyone who knew Grant knew he was bigger than life. Yes literally he was a “Beast”… He could bench press a house, always sported a “six pack”, and by merely “staring you down” could cause instant fear to come over you…..But as big, strong, and tough as he was on the outside, he was gentle, loving, compassionate, kind, and forever charitable on the inside. Tears flowed easily from Grant. You might think real men don’t cry…. Well Grant was about the biggest man I knew. His heart was soft, tender, Christlike, and he was never afraid to show his emotions. Grant is missed by so many every day. With Grant by your side you alwasy knew you were protected. Not only by his mere physical size but because his empathy and compassion reached out to make sure you were O.K. I was the recipeint many times of late night calls where he had to check on his younger brother. He had a way of humbling you when you were a bit more cocky than you should be, and would be right there if you fell to pick you up and carry you back to safety. His grandchildren called him “Pa” and if you watch this video you will see….They were his achilles heel, his gold, his everything… How much Grant loved children. A special smile came across his face when he had the chance to spend tiime with children. At family gatherings many times Grant was not at the adult table. He had wondered off and was laughing, wrestling, and spoiling the children. And Lauri…..Well let’s just say Lauri was Grant’s Buttercup of “Princess Bride”… In fact occassionally I heard Grant say “As you wish”. I have had many close spiritual experices with Grant since he has passed. I have felt his influence in my own life. I have felt his love and pride in G-mo, Heidi, Darryn, and VER…. How proud he is of the way his children are living their lives. In tribute to this great man I can only hope this short video captures Grant in a way that will show his true colors. I finish the video with one of my all time favorites of Grant. That final picture embodies this “larger than life” man I am blessed to call my brother. Sure love him and can’t wait to see him again.

The Daily Echo: Happy Birthday Douglas… Love you Brother… April 19, 2017

April 18, 2017

Today’s echo is dedicated to my ‘brother from another mother”… Douglas Knoles. Although Doug is not genetically related our family has embraced him as our own. From the earliest of ages my children have known Doug as their Uncle. On today’s echo I share a great clip on the value of friends in our lives. One of my favorite sayings is “We become who we spend the most time with, so choose wisely.” I am thankful I have spent and will continue to spend much of my time with Doug. Doug is never afraid to call you out when you even contemplate a “poor choice”. He will be the first one persuading you back to reality. If that doesn’t work you might get tackled physically back into reality. When you love another you don’t really care what they think…. You just care about them. That’s my man Douglas, and although he may not appreciate the picture I displayed of him today (By the way Doug is the one on the left, not to be confused with Lloyd…. He knows one thing I am sure. How much he means to me and how much I love him. For those of you in that period of your life where you think you have to have certain friends…..Remember to Choose your friends carefully. They will greatly influence how you think and act, and even help determine the person you will become… For a few of my good attributes, I can certainly thank Doug for influencing me… Love you buddy and Happy Birthday…

The Daily Echo: The Truth About Vaccines 7 Day Docu-Series… April 18, 2017

April 18, 2017

One of the questions I get asked often has to do with Vaccines. I’m happy to see parents wanting to gather as much information as they can about Vaccines. While I don’t ever want to make the choice each parent should make, I do believe it’s vital to study and research ALL the information out there. On today’s echo I show a teaser in a currently airing series on that very subject. For many the question is either A) To Vaccinate or B) Not to Vaccinate. It is black or white with no gray area. For some that choose to Vaccinate they don’t like the timing there pediatrician gives them. For others they may select only a number of Vaccines and so no to others. The answer may not always be A or B it may fall somewhere in the middle. The tragedy I feel today, is that the parents are condemned no matter what choice they make in the best interest of THEIR child. I have parents tell me pediatricians will “fire” them as patients if they don’t follow exactly the offices “schedule”. If you have a physician that takes your care or your child’s care out of your hands….. Fire them before they fire you. Ultimately no one loves your child more than you and no-one should ever dictate the care they “deem” correct. Paradigm’s are meant to be challenged and I think this short series gives both sides of the argument for parents to better choose. Remember years ago Galileo said the world was round…. Everyone else “KNEW” it wasn’t. He was tried and suspected of “heresy”. He spent the rest of his life in house arrest. But guess what….He was right. Take time to watch today’s echo and tune in for what I have found is an excellent series.
