I worked with Eric for many years and he was such a joy to be with plus he really liked me, he would feel my hand and wrist and once he realized it was me working he would give me a kiss on the cheek, Eric will be missed and loved by all who knew him, i Pray that God comforts the family at this and that you all find comfort in knowing that God is and always will be in control of our destiny, humbly submitted.
