I met Eric many years ago when he and my daughter worked together at Block Buster in Williamsburg. Eric was fun, and I enjoyed joking around with him. We might not have said hello to each other often, but we never lost contact after all of these years. My thoughts, prayers and sincere condolences to Elizabeth, his mom & dad, and all those that loved him dearly. It was a shock to hear, and I will miss him as well.
