Rest in peace Eric, I respected the character of you and your dad after getting to know you through the work you did for me. Honest, hard working, and always ready to help. You left too soon but you’re definitely in a better place.
We are so sorry about Eric. We just read a notice in the Lawson Review and are in shock. He was a good friend and a great guy that will be missed by everyone that knew him. Our prayers are with every family member and we’re sorry that we weren’t at his service.
