Eric was my shift partner & the senior Trooper in our work group. I was with him when he was gravely injured. A close friend and shift partner was also there. Another senior TFC and friend from childhood, responded moments later. The devastation of that day will haunt us forever. The grief his family suffers is overwhelming, 25 years later. May those who loved him be comforted by thoughts of the many ways Eric Monk's life made a positive impact on the community and continues to do so. He was a great role model. I miss his wisdom and humor. His time with us was too short. We'll see you in Heaven bud.
