So sad to hear my best friend growing up and all through college, passed away on Sunday morning.
It makes me stop and think about all the time that has passed since we were young, having fun and enjoying the moment.
So sorry I lost touch with him. Feel as though I betrayed him.i know it isn't fair to me to say that, but I feel that way nonetheless.
I hope to be able to cross paths with you again one day, Eric. Until then, I will remember fondly all of our adventures.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have many memories of Jim and Florine raising the kids as our back door neighbors at the time.
