A final flight up to heaven
Larry Mansfield's cell phone rang while he and his wife, Doreen, were at the New Richmond Heritage Center barn June 2. It was a call that no parent ever wants to receive.
"Oh my, that is bad news," Larry responded to the caller. Doreen was curious about who was calling. A short time later Larry shared the news that their daughter, Katrina Erickson, 26, and her husband, Jay Erickson, had perished in an airplane crash in Zambia, Africa just hours before.
