Eric and Butter, we are thinking of you and praying for peace during this challenging time. I remember when Shank was a little boy and you all lived behind us. He was such a sweet, humble and lovable person. Even though I didnt get the opportunity to get to know him as an adult, Im sure he was just as amazing as he was as a child! He will always be remembered! We love you all❣

I didn't know Eric, Jr. but I do know his father. I guess that says it all. Knowing his father, I'm sure this is a great loss to our community and his family. May my condolences and prayers be with you.
