Not sure what to say?

For all of Eriks Family and Friends,Our entire Family send you Blessings and Prayers, I remember eriks and Gvedo stocking shelves at Ayr-way in Nora & we all went to school together, So very sorry for Your Loss, What a great Guy. Sincerely, The Oliver family

"If it's true, I will believe it."

Eriks raced into all of our lives,
With a twisted, crooked smile,
And a heart filled with fresh
And overwhelming integrity.

He loaded our lives
With excitement
And multiple right turns.

Part of me thinks,
That he may not have needed any of us.
But all of me believes
That he cherished
All of us.

Each of us knew Eriks,
Yet, maybe none of us really knew...


I am saddened to learn of Erik's passing. Although we've lost contact over the last few years, Eriks was a great person who I am glad I had the opportunity to both know and work with. Your family is in my thoughts during this difficult time.

Dearest Trisha and Emma and family,
Eriks was an effervescent light who encircled so many people that were fortunate to know and love him. Though there are no words to console your grieving hearts, John wrote a simply beautiful statement many years ago.
"Eriks was like the sun and he warmed the people around him."
Eriks, may your beautiful soul light your way on your journey.
Good-bye, my friend.
With our love,

Dear Eriks, dear friend,

While time may separate people's paths, memories and thoughts are never forgotten. You will always be cherished and remembered, though sorely missed by your loved ones, friends, and all of those you touched.

Peace to you my friend, Janis Saltans

Trisha, I am so sorry for your and Emma's loss. I knew Eriks well from the Tom Roush days and he always made a person feel welcomed and happy. Never did I see him when he wasn't smiling and making other people laugh. He was a very good man. God Bless

Eriks bore up manfully in many years' struggle with terrible pain, from which he has now been relieved. God bless and keep him, and comfort his family in their sorrow. From friends of Martins and Gunta--

Eriks-I miss your cute little smile, laugh, and your silliness already! You were one of a kind! Take good care of your girls in heaven, including my mom, and make sure you continue to take care of your girls here because they still need you. Trish, Emma and all the rest of the family: you will continue to be in my prayers and thoughts always. Love you!

Trisha, Emma & Family:

May the Love of those around you comfort you and yours through the difficult days ahead.

In Faith and Prayer,
Dave & Deb Kuykendall
