Anna, I never knew Eric. My husband and I had only been here a year when this happened. My husband knew you...it all just came together and I remember when this tragedy happened. There are no words to ease the pain, nothing can come close. I can only hope you've found some peace in a knowing deep within that you will be together again someday. xo Liz

I found your son's story as a dear friend of mine also lost her son when he was 35. They too made a memorial to him as they loved him so and today was the anniversary of his death. My husband and I went over to help ease their pain on this day. Your son's story is very sad, yet I can see he was an incredibly beautiful person. I loved reading his story and feel honored to have shared it. He is an angel now and I am sure watches over you each and every day. I lost both my Mom and Dad this year and still grapple each day with the loss. You see my Dad loved my Mom so much he wanted to be with her as life without her was more than he could bear. He never spent a Christmas without her since they were married and this year he spent it in heaven with her too. God Bless and keep you. You have a very beautiful son and you will be with him one day again.

I was so sad to here about Eric. You wrote such a beautiful and touching story about Eric whom I never met here. But I feel as though I always knew him. It takes a special mother to raise such a wonderful son. I wish that all mothers would raise their sons like you did - with love,compassion, beauty, tenderness, relsponsibility, and most importantly unconditional, genuine love and kindness.

This is lovely - I can relate to your pain of loss as I too have lost my only child (a son). I know how you feel - my son was my whole life, my best friend. May your Eric rest in peace with God until you meet again. Love and prayers.

Very touching memorial for your son. There is no love like the love between a mother and a son. God bless you and your family. You will get to see those beautiful brown eyes again one day.

thank you so much for you kind words and taking the time to read about my Eric. He touched everyone he met and through VM he continues to do so. Im happy that we inspired you to start working on Luke's again. Sometimes I come here everyday, then there are times its too painful. But knowing its here is comforting. Peace and love to you.

Hi Anna. You don't know me, nor do I know you. I haven't been to virtual memorials for quite some time. Just became very hard for me. But, today I felt like visiting my son Luke's memorial and for some reason your Eric's picture stood out to me. I have spent almost an hour just looking and reading. I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your son in this personal and touching way. He is so blessed to have you as his mother as you to have him as a son. Thank you again. Also, your memorial for Eric has inspired me to once again begin to visit and update my son's memorial.

I was investigating memorial websites because I am planning one for my brother. Your son's smile made me stop and read about this beautiful soul whose life was taken too soon. I will remember you and Eric in my prayers. He sounds like an amazing young man. Thank you for sharing this. I cannot imagine how difficult it is for you and I know there are no words. I wish I could give you a hug.

I was thinking about you and your Mother today Eric. I haven't heard from her for such a long time I'm beginning to worry. It's hard to believe that you have been gone for almost five years. You are never forgotten..xo

I've been back to STX several times since you left us, Eric. Everytime I am there, I wish you were around, that we could visit, and I could hang out with you. The island is definitely not the same without you there. I still miss you and think about you often. Your smile will never leave my memory! Just wanted to stop by and let you know that I am thinking about you... Your huge heart and friendship will never be forgotten.
Miss you xxx
Anna....Im not even sure where you are living these days. The past few years when I have went home to visit, I always stop by the bakery to see if by chance you are back there, but no luck. I hope you are doing well and know that I think of you and pray for peacefor you on a regular basis. Your son made a huge impact on my life and has taught me to live a fuller and happier life. I thank you for that! You made him the wonderful man that he was!! I would love to hear from you and know how you are doing. Email if you'd like. Lots of love and hugs

I return today to pay respects to Eric on his 4th angelversary.
I responded to your email, Anna. I got it back saying that it wasn't deliverable with that email address. HMMMMM.......you sent me the email 1st and all that I did was "reply" to yours. Thank godness that I kept a copy instead of deleting it as I do with most. I resent it to you, again. I hope that you get it this time around!
Just 8 days from each other.......his birthday and his date of death. Do you still have a gathering at his gravesite for both dates? We do for Crawford. Angelversary in May and birthday in August. We had a really good turn out for his 4th angelversary in May; but, on 17 people came for his 23rd birthday in August.
I know that I day.......I will be standing alone at his gravesite on these days as all others fade away. The cemetary is just 2 blocks away from my house. I still stop there 4-5 times aweek to tend to his grave. Easy for me.....just stopping on the way home.
Helping to keep Eric's memory alive on this special day.......4 years after he went to heaven.
I still come here everyday and comment into guestbooks on birthdays and angelversaries. I am still amazed at how many young adults and children lost their lives in 2007. There are about 3 times as many memorial sites for children lost in 2007 than the other years near it.
With only memories left of our boys.......

On Eric's 26th birthday; I wanted to stop by again and pay my repects. I used to say, "Would have been 26"; but, I realised that we are acknowledging the years from their date of birth and it's not a "would have".
I still look at the birthdays and angelversaries everyday here on VM. I am still astounded how many children lost their lives in the year.....2007. Eric and Crawford...included.
Crawford had his 4th angelversary this last May. A month afterward; I sat down at the computer and wrote a letter about "Time". I was thinking about how much "time" had passed and I started writing. I want to share that letter with you for I know that you feel as I feel.
I grieve with you each and everyday for the loss of our sons.......especially, today.......26 years after Eric's birth.
With only memories left of our sons.......

While going through some old stuff, I stumbled upon a clipping from the Avis about the St. Croix Memorial service for Eric. I was instantly taken back to the first day I met Eric. I worked at Bank of St. Croix and on occassions I would go over to Anna's Cafe for a scone. I remember thinking that he was so sweet and REAL. After that, he always greeted me with a smile. I was preparing to move back to the states that October so I didn't see much of him, but I often thought of him. Then my mom (may she RIP) handed me the news paper (which I try not to read at all) and I saw his face. Although it was clearly him and I saw "Anna's Cafe" in the print...I kept telling myself "that's not him." Eric, although I did share words of encouragement with you, I never got to tell you that you are AWESOME! Thank you and may you forever rest in peace.

I'm having a moment where I am missing my awesome dear Eric! hi miss anna. xoxo
05-20-2011 3:07 PM -- By: Dan Gilbride, From: St. Croix
Eric was always the best. A goofy tenant who would make me laugh when I took life too seriously, a man who's face, just like his mother's, always lit up when I walked in the door as if I were so special. And he made everyone feel that way.
Spreading his wings, he called me in to save a plant. Poor thing with one leaf. I suggested shooting it and putting it out of its misery, and there came the smile again.
I will never, ever forget you.
Your friend for eternity, -Dan
