After the school semester ended, Eric took three weeks to travel in New Zealand. His parents were set to pick him up at the airport on December 17, 1999.
"We thought it was very cool that our twin boys were going to turn 21 on the millennium," Connie says. "So we had anticipated quite a big birthday party."
Just as Connie and Glen were preparing to leave for the airport to pick up Eric, they got a phone call from someone in the State Department. Eric had been in a motorcycle accident.
