Honor your hero with thoughts, memories, images and stories.

  • Eric was a young man full of life and love for his wife, brothers and for us, his parents. He fought through the fears of war and was in his second deployment in Iraq when in an attempt to rescue some fellow soldiers, he and two comrades lost their lives. We are incredibly proud of our 21 year old hero.

    We are so glad that Eric chose to follow a relationship with Jesus Christ as the foundation for his life. Our comfort is knowing he had settled the issue of finding eternal salvation with His Lord and Saviour. It is our hope, and it would be Eric's as well, that those reading these words would find their salvation in the truth of scripture.
    Lord bless you.
    John 3:16&17
    Romans 3:10, 3:23, 6:23, 10:9,10
