We were thrilled to get news yesterday that Eric and Zoe are now engaged! He popped the question and gave her a ring last night at a lovely dinner at their favourite restaurant. And she said Yes! Although they have both talked a lot about it, she was surprised last night, so it was an exciting and happy night for them both. We are so thrilled with this great news. We got to know Zoe a bit better when we were in Ottawa earlier this year. Her strength and love for Eric shone through. And as Eric said “if we can survive almost 2 years locked down in an apartment during the pandemic, we can survive anything.”
Eric’s next chapter will be months of chemo treatments, so this commitment and celebration, along with a positive mind and strength from loved ones, is a great way to enter into it. I am sure they will weather this well together. They will be leaving for New Brunswick later next week, to stay with Zoe’s parents during his treatment period. Bill and I are comforted by the fact that they will have parental support for transportation, caring and anything else he will need.
So Congratulations to Eric and Zoe! We are just so happy you have found each other and will embark on this journey of life together! XXOO
