I am on my death bed even as we speak and finding it increasingly hard to communicate. I just wanted to say farewell and thanknyounfornall the support you've given me. I told my mother to update you with any changes.

I love you guys and it has been a hard fight to the bitter end. Have a beautiful fight and do not be discouraged.

    Eric?
    Eric?

    I'm speechless, man....just read this and don't know what to say. I've never doubted what you have told me, so I believe you wholeheartedly.

    This is very shocking and it's hard to believe. If indeed the end is at hand, then you've been a good friend to me and I've enjoyed knowing you.

    I just wanted to tell you that, just in case, while there was time to do so. You've been there for so many on the board and I hope you know how much you are loved here.

    You are one of a kind + I will never forget you. I hope you are wrong. You are an incredibly strong person + I really am inspired by you. You have shown us how to fight this fight with grace + humour. We all love you incredibly. Please take good care. Eric, is there anything I can do for you?

    I don't post often but there are several people on the board that I follow very closely. You and Craig are two of the handful of people that I have come to have a tremendous amount of respect for. I am 50 years old and probably have six months or so left so I have followed you with great interest. The grace and strength that you have shown has had a very positive effect on me and I wanted to tell you thank you for sharing this most difficult time with us. I just hope when my times comes that I show half the class as you have shown. Amazing, even on your deathbed you are encouraging others not to be discouraged, just simply amazing. I know your mom is very very proud of you.

    Dearest Eric,

    Words dont come easy right now but I would like you to know how much we all love and respect you. You are an amazing individual and will always be in our hearts. Of course we are hoping and praying that this is not the time for you to leave us. I know that God has prepared a place for you where there is no more pain and no more tears. If it is the time for you to go to your heavenly home I pray that you will be comforted and have the peace that God promises us. I will continue to pray for a miracle but also know that God is in control. Know that we are also praying for your mom. She has brought up a wonderful son and I'm sure she is very proud of you.

    You my friend have given so much of yourself. Always here to encourage and share your experiences with us. Know that you will never be forgotten and will always live on in our hearts.

    Big Hugs and Prayers,

    Debbie

    Dear Eric
    You have been an inspiration to me and so many others. I want to thank you my friend for sharing yourself with us. I too wish that you are wrong, that maybe you could get well, but I'd NEVER wish for you to suffer anymore if you can't get better.

    Your Mom has raised a fine man. It has been evident to me from the first posting of yours that I read. If she is not reading this then please tell her she has much to be proud of.

    Words fail me now but since I read your post today all that has been going through my head is this...and I'll quote..."Well done, my good and faithful servant".

    We love you Eric.

    Eric, I was very fortunate to have known you...a person with so such strength and fight for life. I will continue to think of you and Donna while I am on this life time journey. Please give Donna a hug from us, and know how much you will be missed and how much you have helped others in this journey. I am very sad!

    I pray to God for a miracle, but if it's not to be, may you have the chance to look in your Mom's eyes and reach her soul! You will forever be in her heart and please let her know, that you will be in good hands, ease her heart and mind....tell her I love you Mommy! Tell her to live... And Eric you will be okay. Really...you live on!

    God Bless, a big Hug and Kiss! Send me some Angel Kisses!

    Raquel

    Before I got on this board today and got out of bed, I prayed for a miracle, and we all know what the miracle was...I take it back and ask it for you!! Lord, Hear my prayer!!

    You rock, man
    If this is, indeed, your final stand, know that you have done your best and fought your hardest. We all know how proud your mother is of you, she raised an awesome man. You have been a strong support for many of us and we thank you for that. Hang tough and I pray that God carries you comfortably in His arms.
