Students at Fredericksburg's University of Mary Washington are remembering the life of senior Robert Ericson, who died in his dorm over the weekend from epilepsy complications. He was a campus leader and a singer. Tomorrow at 4:00 p.m., there will be a balloon release, in his honor, on Ball Circle. Students and those who knew and loved him will have the chance to tie messages to their strings. Then at 8:30 p.m., the "One Note Stand" concert in his memory will take place at Dodd Auditorium. Ericson was to have had a solo perfromance in the show, but his peers decided the show must go on in his honor and a way to remember his life and contributions.
