I lived in Photo House with Eric; he was such a kind, laid back, and overall great guy. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing.
To Eric's family: You raised such a wonderful person. I feel lucky to have met him, and I am so sorry for your loss.
To Eric: Thank you for your spirit and your kind heart. I still remember how you happily helped me move all my stuff at school; your great, warm smile; and how you wrote your name "Eriq." You will be missed and remembered fondly.

Can't believe this precious, lovable, always smiling young man could be gone from this earth,so soon. My daughter, Natalie, was very close friends with Eric,and he showed her so many things, including photography.. He photographed her older sister's wedding.. And, was such a personable and sweet person. I know Eric will be remembered and missed by everyone who ever knew him.. Please ,Dear Lord Jesus, take care of him.. He is so special. Sending Love and prayers to his parents and family... Hoping we will see you again One Day,in Heaven.

My heart is broken. There is no one in the world like Eric. I love and miss you always. You were the most amazing friend I've ever had. I wish more than anything that I could tell you that again. I think of you every time I play the djembe, take a photo, longboard, wear big sunglasses, and go on a spontaneous hike.

"here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)." -e.e. cummings.

I am so sorry. I pray for peace for you and your family. I saw the picture you posted last week of the three sons.
They are so handsome. Eric was a joy to be around. Mom very much loved him and I believe they are laughing together in Heaven now. Love Dale

Although I was never that close to Eric, he was a light in a dull world...He had a smile that was contagious and I know that a little bit if him lives in the hearts of those he has left behind. My sincere condolences, and I wish his journey to the other side rewards him for the joy he brought to this world.

No words can explain how special and unique Eric was, how he was a light to so many, and befriended all. His story lives on, here on earth, and with our heavenly Father!
God is right there with you, I pray for comfort, and relief, to be brave and strength within!
Much love to each family member, who shaped Eric into a beautiful being, he was.
