I talked with Eric quite a few times, by post at Colon Talk. I would like to have met him in person. He was clearly, a good guy with a strong sense of service.

Eric was extremely gifted in verbalizing and expressing in words, all sides of a topic, without offending, stating a position, or polarizing. His editorials made you think, not form an opinion. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

Very sorry to hear about Eric. Like many others, I knew him from the Colon Club. He was pretty approachable and talked me, via email, through some tough times in early recovery. I am truly saddened to hear of his passing.

While most of us at Colon Talk had never met Eric, he was an integral part of our 'family'. His upbeat attitude, positive thinking and his zest for life were some of his most endearing character traits. I believe he truly was an inspiration to so many. Eric shared many details of his life with his Colon Talk family....his love for his family, his passion for gardening and of course, who will ever forget his ' bike mile counter' in his signature.....his number just kept rising!!
Eric.....you were an example of what we all should strive to be....decent, considerate caring people....who love their family and give of themselves to others.
My deepest condolences to his family on their loss. Rest in peace, Eric.
