Eric McClure Quotes:
“This has been a very challenging week for me, both physically and emotionally. Having a newborn and four other little girls, among other things, has also presented a challenge to my family. Recovery can be a slow and frustrating process, but thankfully we are seeing signs of healing. I can’t thank everyone enough for all of the prayers, thoughts, and well-wishes during this difficult time and I can’t wait to be back behind the wheel of the Hefty®/Reynolds® Camry.”
