I am so sorry for your loss. Eric was such a gentleman and willing to help anyone. It was my pleasure to work with him at AIG. There are very few like him so I consider myself lucky to have worked with him.
Eric will be greatly missed by many since he left all who met him great memories.

Eric and I were coworkers for several years at Garbarini & Scher in New York. Please accept my sympathy. I am very grateful that Eric and I were able to keep up with each other, if only for a long chat once a year or so. He was very grateful for the love, support, and generosity of Andrew and his family. May you have comfort at this hard time.
