Eric was an incredible friend during the 15 years I knew him. He was a kind companion during late nights when I was panicked about health issues. Always patient and always caring. We had drifted apart after he moved, but reconnected just before Thanksgiving. He wanted to check on me, to make sure I was okay. Such a compassionate thing to do, and at a time I needed his friendship. The world was much warmer for his love and kindness. I can only hope I was half a good a friend to him.

You will be greatly missed. We love you.

I got a voice mail today that I have to reschedule Puck Cornell's appointments next month. I am not calling them for a few days. I just found Dr. Walker last month after Hamlett wasn't feeling well and my vet could not fit him in for an evening appointment. I just fell in love with his caring nature, his spirit, his kindness, his complete gentle soul. He loved cats he said, I am partial to them. IIf there is a heaven, this guy gets in.

Eric was a beloved vet school classmate who was the calm in a storm. He was always smiling, always caring and giving, and I know his kindness, faith, and compassion must have made him an amazing vet. I hate to think that he has suffered at all these last few years, but I know that he is healthy and whole again and that there were many furry babies who were waiting to greet him and welcome him home Blessings to his family and his friends and colleagues. This is such a hard loss.

Eric was one of my best friends in Veterinary School. During the most stressful times he always kept a smile and a sense of humor. We both talked about falling back to truck driving school if we did not make it. We both graduated and Eric became a wonderful veterinarian. I will remember his friendship, love of hamburgers and Dr Pepper. He always made time for church on Sundays. Be at peace my friend, the rest of us will continue to take care of God’s Creatures for you.

I learned of Eric’s passing and I am so saddened by the loss. We went to vet school together and he ALWAYS had a smile on his face and a quick laugh (even in stressful times). He was such a patient and tender souls with animals as well. He will be greatly missed. Prayers for his family and for his son. He was a great man and veterinarian and I know he left a wonderful legacy behind for his son to follow in his foot steps.

My deepest sympathies to family and friends. He was a kind and loving man . An amazing vet. My cat Clancy only saw him once. We were going to ask for him the next time we came in. He will be dearly missed.

I experienced Eric’s loving nature only 5 days before he passed. He was the vet who was taking care of a kitten I had only had for 10 days. The kitten was sick and had to be put down. His comfort and support meant the world to me. I will never forget how loving he was in a most horrible time. I am so saddened to find out about his death. I’m comforted knowing that he is now in heaven to take care of my little kitten who didn’t have a chance to live. My thoughts and prayers are with Eric’s family and friends. If he made such an impact on me only meeting him twice, I can only imagine how loving he was with those that knew him.

Eric,

You were such an incredible soul. I'll never forget the hundreds of conversations we had about life, love and happiness. I'm comforted to know that you strongly believed in heaven, God, and that our soul will go on to a happier place. I struggled to believe, but you kept telling me to "have faith". I know I'll see you again.
I lived thinking that the meaning of life was to find my own happiness. But you disagreed. To you, the meaning of life is not to find your own happiness, but to make others happy.
You were so right. Something I rarely admitted! You were almost always right...
Thank you for making me happy. For caring about me, for putting Dominic and I first, and for loving me the way that you did. Unconditionally.
I'm so angry that you were taken away from me right now. It's unfair. It's painful. But I know, in time, I'll be so thankful that I was lucky enough to live these chapters of my life by your side. I'll keep your kindness alive by spreading it as far as I possibly can.
I love you, and we'll meet again. Watch over Dominic and I.
Love, Marie
*Ambulance! I think I won...*

Dr. Walker was a vet to my kitty Sully here in Pittsburgh, Pa. He was so kind and calming. He got down on all fours to coax my scared cat from under a chair and picked him right up. He gave him cuddles and told him what a handsome and good boy he was. He diagnosed him quickly and efficiently and checked in often to make sure the plan was working. He was truly a wonderful vet and I will miss him dearly. Every time I look at my healthy cat I will think of him with fond and happy memories. My condolences and warm thoughts go out to his family and friends.
