I was blessed to have known and worked with Eric and am so sad to hear of his passing. He truly was a very special young man and always had a smile and was there to help in any way he could. Sure knew how to work with those computers and helped me at work so many times going above and beyond for everyone he knew. He will be greatly missed. God Bless his family and friends at this very painful and sad time.

Pam and I wish to convey our deepest sympathy to Eric's family and friends. He was truly an original. A brightly lit candle, snuffed out way too soon. He was a very supportive and caring person. Always there holding out a helping hand. We loved his sense of humor. I owe him a lot and he will greatly miss him.

We were so very sorry to hear of Eric's passing. It seems like just yesterday he was just a little boy running through the house chasing Steph and driving his grandma Edna crazy. He will be missed and remembered by all whose lives he touched.

I met Eric when he first started at St. Mary's and was impressed with his friendliness, computer savvy and gentle spirit. He was always polite and pleasant and quickly resolved any computer issues we had. I was shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. I offer my sincere sympathy to Eric's family and loved ones.

I was incredibly saddened to hear of Eric's passing. He was such a nice person... always friendly and smiling. I'm sure he had no idea how much people liked him and admired him for his gentle and warm personality.
He was somewhat shy but always willing to help anyone. He was the type of person that you instantly felt comfortable with and he will be sorely missed by everyone at St. Mary's. I know there are no words of comfort that will take away your pain right now but please know, Eric was a wonderful person and you should be proud of the man he was.

To Eric's Family,
We did not know you all, but we knew Eric well. He spent many of his lunch breaks at our house. Every knock at our door would send our 4 year old running saying "Is it Eric? Is it Eric?" because he couldn't wait to see him. My husband will miss trouble shooting computer questions in the middle of the night because Eric is the only one who would and the only one who could help him figure out the answers. And I will miss his smile and just shooting the breeze with him. I can't believe you're gone Eric. My whole family will feel your loss, even our dogs because they loved you too. Eric was loved by our entire family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you during this most difficult time.
With much Love
The Sanders Family

On behalf of Eric's family we would like to sincerely thank everyone for the condolences and prayers. We would also like to thank Vincent and Mike for making this process as easy and painless as possible and it was truly a blessing to have the Vincent A. Enea Funeral Service handle the arrangements for us. Eric was more than a child, brother, grandchild, nephew, uncle, cousin, and friend to all of us. He was a blessing and a beautiful soul that we will NEVER forget. We LOVE YOU more than words can express Moe!
