    My sincerest condolences to Norma, Mandy, and Amanda. I was so saddened to hear of Eric’s passing. He was like brother to me. I was kind of like a mother hen to my boys. I love them all the same. They all called me chicken, but Eric always called me Shana. The talks, the laughs, the tears we shared will always be in my heart. I wish I could have paid my respects in person, but I couldn’t make it over there. Please know that I will always have a special place in my heart for Eric and his family. I pray that God gives you Stregnth and comfort.

    I met Eric in training for Poly Pharmaceuticals. In the short time I spent with him he was such a pleasure to be around. He always had the biggest smile and made everyone feel so important and special in their own way. Eric, you will be greatly missed my friend. It was an honor knowing you. My deepest sympathy to all family and friends. May God provide strength and comfort during these times. God Bless.

    I am sorry to hear of the loss of Eric. I helped train Eric with Poly Pharm in Nashville this past August and only spent a couple of days there. But from that, I could see that he was a very outgoing person and was surrounded by people that loved him. Again, I am sorry for your loss.
