Not sure what to say?

To the family of Rick Saunders. WE were friends in junior and senior high school. We played basketball together in glenwood. He was a great student and leader in school. I am sorry I only saw him at our school reunions. I would have loved to see him work in the courtroom. My prayers go up for the comfort of his loved ones.

My thoughts and prayer are with Eric's family and friends. I met Eric in the 70's through his law school friends. He was a great man who blessed us with wonderful memories to cherish forever.

I had the privilege of working with Eric for several years before I became a Probation Parole Officer. I was the Victim-Witness Assistant in the District Attorney's Office and was in charge of having his victims and witnesses in the court room when he wanted them and not there when they weren't needed and doing a lot of hand-holding while we waited for the juries to return a verdict.

Eric, You will surely be missed. It's always good to know that when you have an attorney that there always are on your side and not just in it for the money. We appreciate everything that you done for us and I feel like a part of my family has left us. No more pain now you are free. Rest In Peace.

Dear Alisa and family,

God Bless,
Wayne and Marie West

Thinking of Eric today, and would just like for his family to know how much he was appreciated by those of us in law enforcement.
