May you rest in perpetual peace my brother. Thank you for your service. May that evil person suffer when it's time for him to go to hell, and that you always watch over your loving family from above.

I remember when you were honorably discharged from the Marine Corps as we and fellow Marines shared an apartment in California. You had spoken about going into law enforcement as did I. I'm deeply saddened of just learning of your passing and the fact we lost contact after leaving the Marine Corps. You were a friend, confidant and fellow Marine and I love you brother.

For many of us left behind, this day will always serve as a reminder of how precious life is.

Today, some of us are calling friends and talking about old times with you and re-sharing stories. Some are saying an extra prayer for your family and some are even visiting your family.

Today we ALL remember you.

Periodically I reflect on our friendship and how much u meant to me and lots of others. I knew when we met that u were a special person. Somehow or another u always seem to pop up in my head. I too now work in public safety and wish u were still around for me to harass u while u were out on the streets. Lol. To hear ur voice when calling in to speak to the zone. U were firm but fair,funny and caring. I never got to tell u just how much I loved u....

Hi Mr. Eric,
I don't remeber you (since I was only 1 when you died), but my dad, your former parner Raul Rodriguez, has told me many great things about you. I pray that God will be with your family until they see you again. I one day hope to meet you in heaven. My dad misses you soo much that my brother's middle name is Eric. You will never be forgotten...ever.

With love,
Sara Rodriguez

I was so sad to see this link of Eric's passing, but when I reflected on him all I could do was smile. He was an amazing person, kind, generous and wise beyond his years. I had not spoken to him in over 20 years, but what I would say is "well done!' I salute my old and dear friend!! I know you are in a special amazing place and you deserve to be there. Although I do not know the family, I know that he picked a beautiful bride and he left an amazing legacy, his daughter.
May God Bless your family!!

Like a comet
Blazing 'cross the evening sky
Gone too soon

Like a rainbow
Fading in the twinkling of an eye
Gone too soon

Shiny and sparkly
And splendidly bright
Here one day
Gone one night

Like the loss of sunlight
On a cloudy afternoon
Gone too soon
