Gonna missed your laughter buddy! Eric was a smart guy that helped keep the I.R.S. off my back. Eric always had something positive to say, and he loved and talked about Sue and the Children regularly. Hope you're at peace and feeling no pain brother. See you on the other side.

I worked with Eric at the Waffle House several long years ago on Murfreesboro Road and the thing that pops up about that time in my memory is his laughter and his kindness. He was the one that inspired me to learn to cook and told me that if I really wanted to do it to go for it. It was these words that gave me the incentive and courage to try it. He was a wonderful friend and if you needed a shoulder his was available. He will be missed. Godspeed Eric.
