It's interesting the thoughts that come to mind when I remember Erik. Growing up I had the plasure of hanging out with him and Marcus and Lloyd and Irene - they were always so nice to me. Sliding down the hills behind their house, shooting clays, playing football, playing video games... Where does the time go? They may be simple memories, but these are the memories I have of Erik, and to me they are special. For some reason the good ones seem to go first. My heart goes out to his parents, my prayers go out to his family. My Gods hands guide you in this difficult time.
