I am so sorry to learn of Eric’s death. He was my friend in High School and we had some crazy times together. I’ve often thought of him throughout the years and my condolences go out to the family. May he rest in the arms of Jesus. Hope to see you in heaven, friend.

I went to school and was in shop with Eric at Vo-tech. He was a great guy who always made us laugh. We had some great times during our school years. I will always cherish those memories. My most sincere condolences to the family. May God bless and comfort you. -Kirk Sassaman
