I was so sad to hear about Erik. I went to school with him and he was a great kid to have in your class -- wasn't mean and didn't cause any trouble. Although I didn't know him well, I knew enough to know that he was a great person. My heart aches for his children and entire family. You'll all be in my thoughts & prayers.
