Words can not express how I feel right now, I remember as a young watch Eric and all the older guy always telling me to stay in school and do what I got to do to make it in life. My heart hurts right now could I truly feel like a part of has died along with Eric. My heart goes out to you Mrs. Patsy, Rose, Mack. May God bless and forever keep y'all in His hands.

I best remember Eric from the days we all lived in Virginia, when I was in college. This is when I first met my comical cousin. Patsy, he used to really work your nerves when he was young, lol, but we all knew he was a twinkle in your eye. I hadn't spoken to Eric since about 13 years ago, this saddens me because we oftentimes take for granted the beautiful, short lives we have on earth, so his passing is a lesson for me. Love you, Eric, rest in perfect peace.

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the Fanning and Fields family. I had the chance to kick with Eric a few times when we happen to be in JC together and he was a real dude. I didn't know him well but what I did no was he always made me laugh. You seemed to always be happy and ready to kick jokes. May you rest easy and watch over your family while in Heaven. You may not have been my cousin by blood but you are to my siblings who I know you were close with, so for that my heart goes out and my prayers are with the fam. Rest in PARADISE!!! Love the THOMPSON household!!

I am still in a state of shock. Eric loved life so much and I will always remember him for enjoying life to the fullest, taking risks, not caring what anyone thought about him. He always kept it 100. I will always love him for that. I remember us having so many laughs but serious conversations also. Eric's death is one of the hardest pills I've had to swallow. RIH my crazy cousin. I love you, I know your grandma was happy to see you open those gates. She loved herself some Eric!
