To the Rudin family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Just know that Eric is now healthy and your guardian angel forever. When the wind blows that is Eric telling you that he loves you too. Remember all the good times and the happy memories to keep him alive. You have those beautiful children to keep Eric alive. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
You guys are in our families thoughts and prayers. I am so thankful for all the support from your close friends and family. I love you guys.
Eric you were an awesome friend, father, and husband. Keep it real up there!
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Rudin family during this difficult time. We now have a very special guardian angel with us and watching over us every moment of every night and day. May god bless your entire family. Team Rudin till forever <3
Eric, You my friend will live on. Like everyone close to you I also feel that the time you spent with us was far to short. I will truly miss having you by my side, you were the best friend anyone could ask for. You were always an ear to listen, the person I went to for advice. Our children will grow up together, I can only hope that they can form the lifelong bond that we formed nearly 30 years ago. I was lucky to have a best friend for so long. I know if there is a heaven you are there, finally without pain looking down on us. I look forward to the day that I see your smiling face again, but until then I will live my life as to make you proud. Rest easy until the day we can again embrace as friends, as brothers. I love you. My love goes to the entire Rudin family I will share the love I have in my heart for Eric with you.
I am so sorry for your loss My thoughts and prayers go out to his family
Dear Angela and family, I wish to extend to you my most deepest and sincere sympathy. truely it is difficult to find the words to comfort such a loss. It was nice to have been able to meet you and share soo many fun experiences at football, Eric stuck in there the entire season. You two are such wonderful parents! Carry on all your memories to the kids through pictures and videos, they will truly appreciate it as they grow older. You are all in my prayers.
Eric, you had a presence about you and a bright smile that just always lit up a room. Your magnetic personality full of kindness, sincerity, humor, love and humility attracted all that you came in contact with. You are so loved and admired by all that knew you. I wish I had a chance to see you one last time and say goodbye. May you rest in peace, watching over your sweet, beautiful family.
Angela, Emily, Evan, Ryan and Collin- May you feel Eric's presence in your everyday life. Eric not only lives in your memories but he also will also be there to love and support you spiritually.
My sincerest thoughts and prayers are with Angela, Emily, Evan, Ryan, Collin and the rest of Eric's family. May your memories with Eric bring you happiness and peace and may your faith, family and friends support you and guide you through this tough time.
I would like to extend my Deepest sympathy to all of you during this very difficult time. Your entire family is in my thoughts and prayers.
My thoughts and prayers go out to jewel and her entire family. Eric was a wonderful man who was loved by all. He will be very missed. RIP Eric

It was a blessing to know you all of my life. You are in a much better place now, you were such a great person with many loved ones always by your side. May God rest your soul. R.I.P
I miss you. It just seems so unreal. As if you have gone on vacation... I will forever remember you and cherish all the times and memories we had together. I will support and love all of the kids and ang. I will play laugh and love them. As you watch over all of us give them stregth and courage.
The fight will never end.. TEAM RUDIN.
...it is so very hard to find words to comfort all of you in this time of agonizing sorrow and grief. Eric you have shown us courage, strength and love in the way you led your life. You have left behind your lovely wife Angela and your beautiful children. What a wonderful legacy. You will be with us in each of your children every day. We know that you will be there to watch over and guide your children through life and to help Angela find the strength to carry on. Our love and prayers go out to Rick, Liz, Mary and Jewel that you all have the strength to carry on...I hope that the love of your family and friends may comfort you now and always. My heart aches that this world will be without a wonderful man, son, brother, husband and father. Knowing the closeness, love and strength of the Rudin Family...you can make it through this together. Know that our love surrounds you. With our deepest sympathy, Mickey and Carolyn ( Chemerka)
Eric the first time I met you I knew you were special. It is obvious you have touched so many lives. You created a beautiful family in your short life and they will carry on your legacy. Please know that we will be there to help Angela and your beautiful children get through their grief and sadness. Your legacy will live on forever. I know you will be watching over them. Rest in peace.
Our deepest sympathies to the Rudin family! Eric was a strong and loving friend! We may have lost a beautiful person but have gained a beautiful angel! May he rest in peace always!
Eric's laugh and smile are a part of my memories of growing up in Lebanon. It is absolutely heart-breaking to hear of his death and know the family he leaves behind. Perhaps the one silver lining is the amazing woman he choose to be his wife, who will without a doubt raise his beautiful and remarkable children in a way that serves as a tribute to his life. Wishing everyone peace in the days, months and years to come.
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
Until we meet again, my friend
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Love You Always Buddy
Eric, you will be missed every second of every day. We will not forget you. Our Hearts are heavy. We Love You.
Eric was never my student at Lyman, but we often chatted and laughed in the hall. He was friendly, open and funny. I will always warmly remember his huge smile and his group of friends, hanging out together, being goofy and loving life. My husband joins me in wishing the Rudin family peace, love and strength to carry on without Eric's physical presence. It was amazing to watch how very loved Eric was in his old Lebanon community of friends-such a tribute to a life well lived. He will always be remembered. In deepest sympathy to you, Angela, and your children, as well as to Eric's parents. We are very sad for your tragic loss of a son, husband and father. God Bless all of you and keep you strong. Sincerely, Lucy and Maurice Simard
Eric was an amazing father, son, friend, husband, brothers in law, u will b greatly missed and u r loved by many. I love u Eric
I have so many things that I want to say, but it seems that none of them are just right. I miss you Eric, and I am heart broken!
I promise to be by Angelas side whenever she needs me, and to be there for your beautiful kids!!
Rest In Peace my friend..... Till we meet again! Love you
My deepest sympathies go out to Eric's loved ones. I know that had a valiant fight against the disease and am somewhat relieved that he is now at peace. My heart goes out to all of you. Eric's charisma and goofiness will be missed.
God bless you all. May the angels lift you and guide you. May Erick rest peacefully
Eric u will be very missed but u impacted all of us in so many ways so I thank u my u rest in peace. Until we meet again
Eric you will be in our thoughts and hearts forever.There are no words to say that will make this any easier.We are so glad to have met a man like you to call not only our friend but part of our family.Please be assured Angela and the children will be taken care of and loved as you watch over them.We love you

I am so sorry for your loss. Love, hugs and prayers to you all.
My thoughts and are with all of you.
Eric is one of those people that I always knew would be happy to see me. We shared the same sense of humor, and laughed at things we probably shouldn't. We want to send our love to Angela and the kids. You're in our thoughts during this tough time.
John, Giulie, and the O'Coin family
Eric we light this candle just for you.. rest in peace and see you soon xoxoxo
Kristen and Joe Noyes
To the Rudin Family, my heart breaks everyday, every minute for you all, you lost a son, a brother, a husband and a father. I just can't find the right words to say... Eric you were a super special guy, you always had the BIGGEST smile, and the LOVE you had for Angela and your four beautiful children amazes me. You and Angela are like a fairy tail. The strength and courage you both have is so strong and power. I know you will take Angela's hand and walk her through this... watching closely over your children, your parents and your sisters. Rest in peace Eric, you will be missed very much from soo many... I love you Bud
Love Kristen Noyes
Rick & Family,
Very sorry to hear about your beloved son's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God bless.
Jerry & Barbara Ruffo
Rest in peace Eric..although its been years since I've seen you, I can still remember the jokes and laughing in science class. And your smile will forever be remembered. To your family and friends my deepest condolences.
Eric please know Angela and the kids will not go on alone. You know they are surrounded by a huge family full of love. I know how proud you have been and would be of Angela and the kids, as they are proud of you. You gave them so much love and what an incredible father and husband! I am humbled by your strength. Until we meet again....
You will be missed but you live on in your children. They are the very essence of you and Ang. Ang...you will be strong because you are. The memories will keep you going forever. Peace.
So sorry for your loss...heaven has gained an angel...he will always be looking down on you!
Eric, Thanks for being my pseudo baby brother. You always gave me a smile like sunshine. I am glad we got to lend our prayers for you to be here a little while longer and you taught us so much with your strength. Love you, Gayla
It will be so hard to face the years ahead without Eric, but the love of family and friends will carry you through. You will forever be reminded of him in your children's faces. I pray for you to find the strength to get through this. While Brian and I only lived there for two years, you two made it feel like home. I will remember Eric's always smiling face.
I'm so sorry for your loss. Eric was a great person and his joy with his family and friends is evident in all the pictures I see. My thoughts are with your family.
I am so saddened to hear of your loss. Having never met Eric, but working with his Dad for many years, I can attest to the complete love and adoration Rick and his wife had for their son and family. This will be a most difficult time. Lend your heart and heavy shoulder to family and friends and know that you will never be alone with the circle of love that surrounds you on this earth and in the spiritual realm. Love, thoughts and prayers to you.
My deepest sympathies are with your family. You are in my thoughts.
I'm sorry for the loss of this great man.
My heart is so sad to hear of Eric's passing. His wife and children are especially in my thoughts and prayers. Rest peacefully, now, friend.
Always missed and loved very much. Thinking of u always. Ur the best wish I had a father like u. U were always there unlike slot of guys but u were not like any other guy. Ur one in a million love you and miss u tons see u soon
I love you Eric. I will make sure to watch over my sister and your babies. Thank you for all the love and memories, and thank you for helping my baby battle his journey with cancer, helping him be less scared. Israel says he misses his favorite Uncle. I do too. It'll never be goodbye as I'll see you again. So until we meet again, I'll see you soon big bro. <3
Eric... Looking back at all the times we meant to get together and never did weighs on my heart. I have been inspired by your wife, Angela to prioritize & appreciate every moment with the ones I love... I see that she has so much love in her heart and I have faith that she will stay strong to guide your beautiful babies through life.
I tried to tell you when I laid in bed with you days ago, but could only seem to tell you I love you… I am so very grateful to have had you when I randomly came to live with you... That was such a crazy and dark time in my life and having you made me feel connected to someone in a world of unknown faces & empty places. You helped make it a place of exciting adventures and playful fun. To this day, I keep our memories in my heart and remain close to some of the friends we shared.
I love that I got to be apart of your upbringing and family... I have become ever so grateful to them for taking me in. As I look back from where I am now in life, I view it as a selfless act of love- to take in a lost child in hopes of a better life. I had a lot to learn still, but the love I felt remains in my heart. You all touched it and became a piece of it: Auntie Liz, Unckie Rick, Mary & Jewel... I wish that I could help carry the burden; relieve some of the pain.
I love you.
You were a great person, great husband and father. You will be missed by so many and thought of daily. My thoughts and prayers to your entire family.
Heavy hearts take flight, warm memories are spoken ...
With everything you are,
With everything left to do...
Everyone touched by you,
May you find your way above to the weightless gifts that surround you " love " ...
Hold tight the love, the laughter - let go of the pain...
Learn to smile once more,
Heaven we all meet again.
My prayers are with your family at this time. Eric will be sorely missed but the Lord has him now and will take good care of him.
Angela and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this tough time. May Eric rest in peace. And may you have the strength to carry on. He will always be with you and your precious children.???
