It was two years since you left us and it seems just like yesterday. My grief has changed from suffering in pain in my loss to memories of happier times. Oh, yes I do cry for the loss of you, my precious Son, but many times I laugh when I remember the funny things you did and said. I think God does that, He replaces the pain with a smile. I remember you the most as a child, who loved playing the Hulk and tossing my plastic tables around, wrestling on the floor with your Dad and Sissy. Driving your big wheel all over the place. I remember how handsome you were in you Tux for the school Prom, how you fought for the weaker person, or friend. You really were a wonderful guy and still are in all our hearts. Love you forever, Mom and Dad
It's been two years eric, and I still miss you. A lot has happened recently and I just thought of you. Rest in peace, love you.
Giant kisses and hugs and love from afar!! I know you're with me and you know when??. No one is around and a song comes on or a thought/memory crosses my mind...I'd rather you were here, but I'm glad I carry you with me.
Dad and I visited your place of rest yesterday. We read some scripture and prayed really for us since we are the ones left here on earth, your in heaven with the Father and His Son Jesus celebrating your earthly birthday. I have peace and am able to move on to live with the help of Jesus. Miss you every day, but live my life trying to help young people like you were who are in need. God helps us every day to do this. I'll see you again honey when it's my turn to go. Dad and I love you!
Happy birthday brother. You are always in my thoughts. I miss you. Rest well.
Night man, rest your soul
Good night Eric, may we meet soon
My friend, my cousin, my brother.....it's been a year since you've been taken from us and I still can't believe you're gone. I think about you everyday. Sometimes laughing to myself about the things we've done together and the fun times we had, but mostly saddened because you're not here to make more memories. I'd do anything to have one last chance to see you. The pain and hole in my heart has lessened over the past year, but it will always be there. My heart goes out to you uncle George, aunt Bev, Belinda, and everyone else who loves and misses you Eric. Until I see you again, rest in peace brother.
Although tomorrow marks the date, today marks the day. One year later, my heart still weeps. Thoughts and prayers for all those who love you. Missing you always cuz! <3
3/3/13...Its been one year since our son Eric left us.Our lives are for ever changed,by his death.As a father its hard for me to know that I will never be a granddad to children of Eric,and for him to be a dad.There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss him or think about him.Eric I will always love you.Love Dad
Dear Bev and George- you are both on my mind and in my heart and prayers these days. It still does not seem possible. We care for you and want to be part of the healing process.
Our love and hugs, Bob and Esther
Night Eric, one day we'll meet again
My birthday was Saturday, the first one without you giving me a kiss and a loving card. Oh Eric, my life without you is not complete, an empty hole in my heart. I prayed this morning that God allowed you to hear my prayer that I love and miss you. I thank God for your sister, who loves me so much, your niece and nephews, your loving Dad, Jen, family and dear friends who understand. I'll see you again, my Son, and we'll be together forever. Rest in Peace,
Love you buddy, hope I have a dream about you tonight, I miss you
I agree with the last entry, I think of you, Eric especially at fun family times, like birthdays, holidays, get togethers. Life without you will never be the same. I look at old videos and laugh and remember when you were a little guy, and teen, then young man. Forever young, and in my heart.
Hey I was just thinking of you, miss you
Hey there Eric, I really love you and miss you, I miss all the fun things we would do. I wish you didn't have to go
Love you Eric, I miss you
Eric,missing you so much. Love Mom & Dad
I only have a picture now
A frozen piece of time
To remind me of how it was
When you were here, and mine
I see your smiling eyes
each morning when I wake
I talk to you and place a kiss,
Upon your lovely face.
How much I miss you being here,
I really cannot say,
The ache is deep inside my heart,
And never goes away.
I hear it mentioned often
That time will heal the pain,
But if I'm being honest,
I hope it will remain.
I need to feel you constantly,
to get me through the day,
I loved you so very much,
why did you go away?
The angels came to take you,
which really was not fair,
My one and only son,
My future life, my heir.
If only they would have asked me,
I would have taken your place,
I would have done so willingly,
leaving you this world to grace.
You should have had so many years,
To watch your life unfold,
And in the mist of this,
watch me, your Mom grow old.
I hope your watching from above,
At the daily tasks I do,
And let there be no doubt at all,
I really do love you.
As Mother's day approaches I realize I won't have my Mom to celebrate the day with and my Son, Eric. If he couldn't come to see me he would call and wish me a Happy Mother's Day. He was sweet like that. This year is going to be really hard without my Mom and my Son, oh Lord I pray your strength and mercy to still enjoy these days ahead with the family I have.
Thinking of Eric's family and praying that you are all finding some peace. It takes time and maybe not as bright, but the sun will shine again for you. Thoughts and prayers are sent your way.
George, Bev, Belinda ... How our hearts hurt for each of you as you each have a different sadness and pain with the Homegoing of Eric. We are praying for each of you. We trust that the Lord ... our Father who lost His Son at a young age ... will speak to you in the special, unique way you each need Him to. He will hold you each when you don't think you can stand. He will be with you as you have memories of Eric.
We love you each dearly.
Oh, dear Lord, we miss our son, Eric so much. I made a memory album for him. I spent a whole day going thru all our photo's and bought a scrapbook and stickers to make a beautiful book. I tried to find the funniest sweetest most treasured pictures. As I put one page together at a time, I smiled, giggled, and cried. You gave us a picture when you were in boot camp, that said "To Mom & Dad, I love you guys very much and I know your proud of me, and that makes me very happy." Love, Eric. I was always proud of my son, thru thick and thin. My heart has a hole in it but my goal is to minister to others who are going thru or may sometime go thru this type of loss. God will help us by giving peace and joy in the treasured memories of our son.
My cousin, my friend, my brother, there are no words to describe my pain. The loss of you has left a hole in my heart and a void in my life. Neither can be filled. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you or miss you. I can only hold on to the memories we shared together from childhood to adulthood. We always had a blast together no matter what we did. I always looked forward to the next time we would be hanging out. I knew it would be full of humor and laughter, as it always was. Just the sound of your laughter could cause anyone to laugh themselves, without even knowing the story being told. It's still too hard to believe that we won't have anymore of those good times together, and the realization hurts. But as each day passes the pain lessens, but will never fully be gone. Every drink is a silent toast to you. I love you and will miss you the rest of my days. Until we see each other, rest peacefully.
Bev, George and Belinda so sorry to hear about Eric's passing. Zach just told me about Eric a few days ago. May God Bless you all daily and especially in this time of sorrow. You are surrounded by friends and family who love you.
I was messing around with my planet-finder app tonight. It was so clear, cloudless. I spotted this huge bright light in the western sky at 7pm and new it wasn't a star. I tracked it and it turned out to be Jupiter, visible from Earth with the naked eye. The Jovian Giant. I immediately thought of you. You loved the mysteries of space and all that it involved. I was at Sam's parents when I saw it and her brother loves space stuff. He didnt believe me when I told him he was actually seeing into the past when he looked at the planet. I guess he hasnt learned the speed of light concept yet. I know we talked about this stuff for hours and, for some reason, You were making it shine so bright. I miss you, Bro.
One person's life affects so many others- so much more than we realize. Eric was a sweet, funny, cool guy. We are all better for having known him.
He was my uncle but he felt like a brother I love Eric I miss you

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life
ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY ERIC AND SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE=)
