I remember at the time the extreme shock and dismay brought on by his death, especially in the neurological community. I mention Eric now because I was recently giving my new husband and my brother, Kert KHS69, a tour of the fabulous new athletic fields and environs and we visited the brick pathway, many of the bricks now having names, dates and memorials to KHS folks of all types. The memorial stone for Eric was particularly touching. Others of our classmates also have honor or memorial bricks too, the Lowe girls and Brent Schenk come to mind. I thought a photo of Eric's memorial might bring back some good memories of him for those of you who were his friends.These bricks are a great way to donate to Kirkwood School District Foundation and remember your family and our childhood!
