I met Eric while attending a speech class at the Trumbull County branch of Kent State University in the fall of 1974. There were only about 15 students in the class and by chance I picked a seat near Eric and we instantly hit it off. At the time it was inconceivable I had just met best man at my wedding, being the Godfather to his first child, and becoming a lifelong friend. I have a cornucopia of memories flashing through my mind as I think of Eric and Carol…..and the kindness and generosity they bestowed on me over the years. Comprehending he is no longer on this earth creates a void, but since Eric was a devout Christian, I can rejoice in knowing he is truly home in a heavily garden with his Lord and Savior.
