What a great guy Eric was. He found the best in every situation. At our high school reunions he'd remind me of a bus ride we found ourselves on together when he was coming home from the Navy in Boston and I was coming home from college. We'd had a lot of laughs over the tortures of both college and armed services, and of being homesick. I was happy when he married my childhood friend Carol His death is not only a loss to his family, but a loss also to those of us lucky to have known him. Prayers and loving thoughts to his family.
