    Loved ones are precious
    I know this for a fact
    and when you lose one
    ItÂ’s like an attack.
    But keep your head up
    Try to stay strong,
    Remember we are here for you
    And have been all along.
    We have you and your family in our prayers, and you can count on all of us to be there at your side.
    Sending our love, *Miss you Eric, and will hold memories tight*

    I remember when you would come over when i was younger and push me on the swing set.
    I remember playing the Army game with you at your house.
    I remember playing with the dogs with you.
    I love you uncle Eric.

    We have known Eric since he was a small child. Eric was always polite when he would come over and talk to us. We will always miss him. George and I were proud of Eric when he would tell us about his job at Schnucks and how much he liked working there. I will miss making cupcakes for him. Eric will be missed greatly. No words can take away the pain his family is going through but Eric knew his whole family and friends were there for him when he needed them. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
