I met Eric when he was working for a federal appellate judge in South Bend, Indiana. Eric and I became friends there, and our friendship continued after I left the area. What a classy guy! His academic and professional achievements were so impressive. He was also remarkably friendly and thoroughly unpretentious. A true gentleman, and a man of principle and conviction. Like others, I greatly admired Eric's courage and resolve in the final years of his life. My sympathies to Linda and the children and to Eric's parents and siblings.
My Deepest sympathy to you and your family Hank, I can't even begin to know how that feels.
My prayers are with you and your family.

So very sorry to hear of your loss, and at such a young age. Death was never a part of God's intended purpose for mankind. If obedient could have lived in paradise indefinitely (Genesis 2:16, 17).
Jesus assured us of a wonderful future in His kingdom (Matthew 6:9). I hope these thoughts bring you all some comfort.
Am praying that our God will comfort your family. Love and prayers!
Our condolences from Debbie's Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer - www.DebbiesDream.org. Eric worked tirelessly with us to help make a difference. He was our Illinois Chapter Founder and contributed to our efforts. He will be incredibly missed!
Eric, father, husband, son, brother, uncle, child of God. May God's grace fill your days. Love in Christ Marilyn Nemetz Sanderson

I am so sorry that Eric is gone from this life at such a young age. His legacy lives on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. There was so much goodness in this very special human being that will remain forever cherished in all whose lives Eric touched, cared about, and loved. Eric's spirit is remembered with happiness and heartache, and he will be forever missed . I am thinking of you and praying for peace and comfort at this difficult time.
I cannot imagine your sadness but I'm praying for God to somehow comfort and bring you through this time.
It is with sadness with which we write this, but with gladness of knowing him, his courage, his story, and his ever present hope of his future. He made a difference and leaves behind a legacy that will long be remembered.
Eric became a good friend to me and my family during my brothers bout with gastric cancer. He was willing to reach out despite his own battles. He was always willing to listen after my brother passed away. My hope is that these two great men will be able to connect in eternity. All of our love and prayers to the Grush family.
We are deeply saddened by Eric's passing and are holding all of you very close in our thoughts and prayers. Eric was a remarkable man who set a high mark for himself and all of us as well. We were encouraged and uplifted as we watched how you all loved and cared for him during his journey home. God bless!
