    Eric meant a lot to us. We are so sorry for your loss. Eric and his kindness were the reason I joined CPU back in the 80’s. He was a great mentor for when I started our own business.

    Eric was the most generous person I have ever met ( and Jayne too). I would not be where I am today with my business and career If not for Eric mentoring me. More than that, he was a wonderful friend who showed me how be a genuinely good person, husband, and father. My regret is that I didn’t spend more time with him over the past years to let him know just how much I appreciated everything he had done for me, to gain more of his wisdom, and simply to just enjoy his company,. My deepest sympathy to Jayne and the entire family. Eric, I’m extremely grateful that you came into my life and will miss you greatly.
