Condolence: So sorry for your loss. I played football with Eric's brother Michael at Westerville South and met him a few times.
I know that his spirit will live on and that he is truly in a better place. Those word's while true still are not comforting at times like this as we would all rather have him here. My prayers go out to all as there were so many effected by this tragic loss.

Condolence: My Son And I Want To Let You Know That We Always Enjoyed Seeing Officer Eric And Sam Around Town. My Son Really Appreciated That Eric Always Let Him See Sam And Allowed Him To Pet Him And Talk To Him Like He Was Just Another Friend. Officer Eric Always Said That He Thought My Son Was The Dog Whisperer...Because Every Time He Saw Us My Son Was Sitting On The Ground Petting A Dog And Talking To Them Like An Old Friend. Officer Eric Made A Real Impact On My Son..Not Many People Could Do That. Officer Eric Was Such A Gentle Soul & He Will Truly Be Missed.
We Will Definitely Be Praying For Your Beautiful Family.
RIP Officer Eric
