    You will never know how he saved my life when I first moved to California for college. He made sure I stayed focused and graduated. Eric was a great guy and human being. He will truly be missed.

  7. To the Maddox Family:
    Many of you already know the way I felt about Erick. He made me feel equally special. When he was diagnosed, he took the time to call me and say he didn’t want me to learn from anyone else about his illness. We would talk periodically during his treatments. I don’t believe I’ve ever met a more kinder and giving person as Erick. I will surely miss him. Rest on Brother…..which is what we called each other….until we meet again!❤
