Mrs. Dianna, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I can truly say Eric was a wonderful man, he along with his dad saw me grow up. They would allow me to pass through the shop yard to go over to my grandmothers so I would not have to go onto the busy Kirkman Street. Just can't say enough on how he will be missed, especially not seeing him outside taking care of his plants. I will be right across the road if u need anything, don't hesitate to ask.
