Eric and I met when we were both classmates at St. Mary Magdalen. I recently got reacquainted with him when he sent me his number through Facebook. We decided to get together and meet, 30 years after we had known each other as children. I’m met him at the Swamp Room to catch up and to talked about the good times we’ve had . I glad that we did. To his family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Eric will always have to place in my thoughts and memories.
