Compassionate, generous, loving, and loyal friend is the man Eric England was almost so to his detriment. Through our ups and downs he helped me grow to be a better person. He left us with fond treasured memories that leave us smiling and laughing. My prayers are with his family, friends, and loved ones he leaves behind. May God carry you through this different time.
