Eric's passing a HUGE loss to our community
I was so pleased to see you mention Eric, yet so sad to hear of his passing. I was terribly sad I missed his memorial service, I would have taken my children and gone to celebrate his life.
Eric touched my family in many ways in the last few years and will always be remembered with love. His philosophy was devoted to love, unity, one-ness. I believe not just with the dog, but with our fellow human beings.
Eric was a mans man, yet soft, gentle and kind hearted. He loved everyone.
Just over 2 years ago Eric placed a puppy with us. I was a single mother of three, and one of my children had just been diagnosed with irreversible refractive amblyopia and already struggles with autism/Aspergers. I was humbled by his generosity, kindness and trust.
Now, we have Jetta. all grown up. She is the most amazing dog I have ever known. She tries so hard and loves so much I'm just reduced to tears at times from her ability to just love in such a constant fashion.
Thank you Eric for this amazing gift that has changed not just my life but the lives of my children. And thank you for posting the notice of his passing.
