 This is David Butters posting this - Jami Elizabeth Reid's husband.

Eric was a VERY nice guy.  He and I worked together at Publix in Highschool.  He was liked by everyone and was a genuinely nice person.  He and I had some fun times together.  Eric always had his stuff together - he knew where he wanted to go in life and how he wanted to live it.  

All these years later, reading his obituary, it seems that his plans (as he told them to me) worked out.  I only wish his life had not been stopped short.  Nothing fair about it.  At all.

You were a good guy Eric.  I'll see you in the next life.

Your old friend,
