BrownBagger, He was a real inspiration to me, and obviously to a lot of others.
He first welcomed me to this site when I was in a state of deep shock, give me space to come to terms with it, friendship, knowledge and that is something I have never forgotten.
I loved his posts on everything, and he will be sorely missed.
When I was in the stage of flailing about he gave me hope, when I was in the stage of despair of a recurrence, he give me a path that even if that did happen, there was still a life to be lived and I had to chose what to make of that life.
There are some people that you come across in life that you can never thank enough, or repay their selfless acts of kindness and Eric was like this with everyone.
My heart and thoughts go out to his wife, and his daughter.
Eric, may you ride your bike on the backroads with clean lungs, a light heart and may you soar with the eagles.
See you mate, and have a whiskey for me....I'll keep eating the good stuff as it makes me think of you.
Kiwi, your friend.
