I just want you guys to know that I was with Eric in rehab in Michigan and he really made my time there so much easier. He was a good guy and a great friend. Always making me laugh. I will pray for your family in this time of great loss. Stay strong.

Eric was my roommate at BDR. This young man made a life-long lasting impression on me as a man. If there is anything I can do, do not hesitate to find me on facebook. I loved this guy as a brother and a friend. I wanted to believe this wasn't true, and I am truly, deeply saddened. I am very, very sorry for your loss. With Regards, Bryce

I was at gateway with Eric and also saw him at meetings as i was staying at halfway to home north. Eric was always laughing, always joking, and always making others laugh. I couldnt believe the news when i found out. I had just seen him two days earlier and he seemed to be doing fine. I dont know if the warning signs were even there. I love you and wont forget you Eric. I hope you are at peace now. Condolences to your entire family.
