According to the Metrowest Daily News, funeral services for Eric Green, the Trottier seventh grader who passed away last week, will be held on Monday at 1:00 pm at St. Matthew Parish (105 Southville Road).
The Southborough community continues to mourn Eric’s death, particularly his friends and peers at Trottier, many of whom have penned touching tributes to their classmate.
Students in Southborough do not have school on Monday and Tuesday, and Trottier Principal Keith Lavoie said the long weekend is a good time for families to come together. “The sadness and grieving process will continue for many students for some time, and we know that the upcoming long weekend will be an especially important time for children and parents to connect,” Lavoie wrote in a letter to parents last week.
In a letter to the MWDN, Eric’s parents Peter and Suzy said the popular 13-year-old had experienced occasional mild seizures for the past 15 months, but doctors told them the condition was not serious and did not require medication. His parents say Eric’s airway may have become blocked during a seizure on Thursday leading to his death.
Update 1/15/2012: More details on the funeral arrangements have been made available.
A funeral Mass will be held Monday, Jan. 16, at 1 p.m., at St. Matthews Church, 18 Highland St., Southborough. Burial will be private. After the Mass, Eric’s family will gather at St. Matthews Parish Center with family and friends to celebrate Erics life.
