    I was so sorry to hear of Eric’s death. He was quite the
    character . Eric assisted me with my Scouts at Ingels Elementary for the past two years. I will always remember how proud he was of his service with the military. He expressed to the boys the importance of treating and honoring the USA flag with dignity and respect. I hope your memories of him will be some comfort to you.
