my baby boy , ugh i miss you so much and i could go on and on i could write a book on how much you helped me .
you helped me after my mom died &’ you convinced me that it wasn’t my fault . you made all my pain &’ worries go away when i was talking to you .
i miss you . i miss your smile . i miss being on facetime with you . i miss how you made me smile the biggest &’ how you made me so happy . you was one of the only people that made me smile bc i have to much pain inside me .
you use to ask me if i was hungry . ask me if i had a good day . ask me if i was straight . asked me if i needed anything &’ you would be here in a snap of a finger .
i love you so much baby , watch over all of us &’ guard me &’ give me strength . we all miss you 💔🕊🌎 .

Eric, where do I even start? First let me just say I miss you lots! You’ve always been there for me when I needed you the most. You were an amazing person. When I was down bad you never failed to brighten my day. I remember I remember the night we hung out & we were just having a great time! The nights you would call me randomly to see if I was awake & when we went to school together you’d always pinch me in lunch lol. I know your flying high with the angels looking down on me & your family & friends. I never thought you’d become an angel so soon. It’s forever your world Eric. We love you ❤️🌍🕊

Eric was always family. Him and Jake. Always. I've known them my whole life. I was always closer Jake but Eric knew I was 10 toes down for him . I've got a lot of memories with him. I remember all the neighborhood was on my porch and we was playing around . We was always hanging out at tts house . We beefed quite a bit but I still loved him. He was ALWAYS wearing a book bag and riding his bike around . It's long live Eric forever and always 🤍😟🙏🏼.
