 I have not seen Eric much since we were teenagers but I can never forget him. At 15 years old he was my first boyfriend, my first kiss, and my first heartbreak. I am sorry for your loss and may God be with u in the hard days to come.

 Eric was one of my best friends. We were so close when he lived in Alabama. We stayed in touch throughout the years, but had lost touch for the past couple of years. I had just found him and gotten back up with him. I was privileged to be invited to his mothers wedding and meet the rest of his family. Robin was a wonderful sweet person. And Mammie... No words can explain how sweet she was. I will never forget the times that they would come down to visit. Him and Robin would always come by my house and get me and carry me out to eat and I would get to spend the day with them. Him and D.J always picked on me about the way I said school. When I would get on the phone with either of them the first thing they said was "say school." I miss them all so bad. They will never be forgotten. I love you Eric. Tell momma Robin, D.J., and Mammie I love them.
