Praying for his family. I am just blown away be the news he has passed away. Eric was a major part of the path I lead today and will continue on. What an amazing person he was. I know anyone who has ever met Eric has been touched by him. God certainly works in mysterious ways and must have a plan we were not aware of. God bless his family.
Eric will be deeply missed !!

Eric was my best friend from K-9th grade at WSC. Eric was the most loyal, kind and caring friend anyone could have. The entire Glass family always treated me like a 6th son. I look forward to the day that we can re-acquaint our friendship as we praise our eternal Creator.

I remember getting together with everyone for the holidays at Grandma's house in Kalamazoo and all of the fun we had and then as we got older gathering at Luther Village with our growing families. Although we as cousins don't get together often now it's those memories that will never fade. I had the privilege of connecting with Eric recently on Facebook and he became such a source of strength and encouragement to me. I will always treasure his Godly advise and will miss chatting with him. I'm sorry I couldn't attend the funeral due to the weather but know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I am so very sorry.
Love always, Belinda
