Detective Smith was able to apprehend the monsters that shot and murdered my best friend when they robbed his place of employment. He was kind to us and kept us informed during our terrible ordeal. Rest in Peace sir! You will never be forgotten!

I worked Precinct One with Eric for several years, he was a pleasure to work with.

He a great guy, a great police officer, and someone I always felt had my back.

Not long ago I saw another friend of ours from my time in Precinct One and as usual we always talked about Eric, and as usual we always get that tear in our eyes.

Trust me Eric, you will never be forgotten.

I have been searching for Eric for the past 20 years to reconnect our friend ship we have since boot camp in the marines. Eric was truly one of the best people I have met.

It sadden my heart to hear such a great person has past away too soon.

I wanted Eric to know what positive impact knowing him for four years we served together.

My youngest son who is now 21 years old name is Harrison Eric Quamily.

Warm Regards,
