I am so sorry for Eric's family, and his close friends, especially those on this forum... I have so much appreciation for folks who correspond here, like Eric did... because it puts all of us in the same room to discuss the most uncomfortable conditions our families are experiencing. It has been so helpful to many.
It is therapeutic and humbling to read through the eyes of people like Eric, and those who come to this forum in the future will still read his wisdom, humor and (living for the day) life experiences through the threads preserved in the search engine of Colon Talk.
I have learned so much from Eric, and those he grew close to on this forum throughout the years. He has joined so many good people that I have met historically reading their Colon Talk posts. He truly is not alone in Heaven. His many friends were quick to greet him upon his arrival... May he and the other's continue to look out for the rest of us dealing with this most dreaded disease.
God bless you Eric, and Thank You for all you have done for this Colon Talk community.
We will miss you.
