Dear Eric: It is hard to believe that eight years has passed since you were taken from us. I went to your memorial at SMU today and put a flag up to show all on the campus that you should not be forgotten. I went there in the car that has the Pike Alumnus sticker on it. I didn't see any Pike's though. I guess they are all sleeping it off as a result of the Halloween week end.
We all thought about you at the Medal of Honor Patriot Award dinner held on Oct 25th. Collin and Cameron were there in their cadet uniforms and Governor Rick Perry, who was the keynote speaker, came to the table to greet all of us. It was an exciting moment.
I will always remember you as the greatest son a father could have. God bless you and God bless America!
