So sorry we never had the opportunity to really spend time and get to know each other. Unfortunately, we live our lives and never stop to say Hi, how are you and how was your day!

Iam in hopes that we will meet again and we will have the time for eternity to say Hello, I love you and how was your day. ☀️Rest in peace .....and know now.....I LOVE YOU💝 and will see you someday and take the time for you!❤️
Signed,

Eric sad to see you pass. Growing up was some of the best times in the park. Did many things that we shouldn't . Time sent us in different directions and we both became fathers and who knew our kids would be friends . You are gone to soon but will live on in the hearts of you love ones . Have fun in Shangri-La woop woop.

Erik was always a visitor at my house when he was young, the year he became a father was the best parts of Erik I saw, he would do anything for his son. My heart breaks for his family and friends. RIP Erik

You always had a way of coming out with the best joke at the worst time but it was always hilarious and always caused that awkward moment of trying not to laugh but then everyone would laugh because you really couldn’t help it. I’m so glad we had that day with you at camp. Even though it was freezing you and Dreyden were going swimming and talked me and josh into going in. I’m glad I did because I will forever remember with a smile your battle with trying to get on the dock. You were so determined and cracking jokes the whole time. It was a good day. I love you and am going to miss you.
