I think about Eric and the Langlois family every day. What a special man he was to so many. I enjoyed getting to know him while helping him hang his work in The Studio. I am sorry that I can't be with you on Sunday, but, will be there in spirit. Here's a favorite Eric photo of mine. I know that all the JORDAN team who knew Eric feel the same as I. Our deepest sympathy and condolences.

Amber, I was not fortunate enough to know your husband. I lived in New Milford for 30 years. After my husband died I moved. I Understand your grief of losing your lover,friend,and soul mate. I have my husbands picture above where I am typing right now, and although it's been seven years I still cry ocassionally, but I laugh also at all his antics. My prayers are with you and your children. God bless.

So sorry this family has suffered such a tremendous loss. I know Eric's family won't let his children ever forget their Dad was so loved, that when he was in trouble, his friends, family, and colleagues came from all over the state to help him.

My heart and soul goes out to you Amber, Avery and Ryder and the rest of your family. Words cant describe the feeling of loss. I learned so much from Eric even beyond the lens and will always remember him with every click of my camera. He taught me most of what I know. I will pray for you and I know you have a lot of support right now but when things die down, should you need anything, you have my number. Eric will forever be a part of me and what I do.
