    Very sad and surprised to hear this news. I was glad to catch up with Eric at Aurelio’s a few years back, and thought of him recently. He was always such a positive and friendly guy, and the last time I saw him, he was in good spirits and seemed to be doing quite well. We will all miss him. My heart goes out to Eric’s parents and sister during this difficult time.
