I will always remember the first day I spent with Uncle Eric, Aunt Lillian, and Aunt Genene. We went to one of their favorite restaurants after church, and Uncle Eric taught me to shoot those little cups of half-n-half they leave on the tables.

Each time I saw him (and there weren't enough) he was so loving and patient, and he was always a hoot to be around.

Uncle Eric was a wonderful, special man. My prayers are with you as we grieve his Earthly loss.
