The God honest truth..........

Sadly Eric was drug dealer and gangbanger. He made that choice even though he came from a loving home.

I feel awful for his family and his kids. He could've done so much more with his life and although he attempted to do that, the streets kept calling him back and keeping him invloved with the wrong people.

Eric was starting to see that he needed to make a change and start living right for his kids sake. Sadly, it was too late.

He knew the risks of the life he chose to live. I just hope other boys his age can learn from this tragedy and change their lifestyle before it's too late!!!

Rest in Peace Eric!!!!

What is with these guys? They are always "turning their lives around". after they have ruined the lives of others.

I wish i knew the answer to that. It's just a waste of life and talent. Eric was a loving person, but he had a "thug" side too....peer pressure and fast money! It lures our children to dark scary places. All we can do is pray and hope they learn to live right before it's too late! I hope, by his death, some of his friends have decided to turn their lives around and do something positive! Lord please look out for our youth and help them to live respectful lives!

I feel for his mother. She probably tried to raise him right. And then he has 2 kids by 2 dumb girls. It goes on and on and on.

She did try to raise him right and even left his father cuz he was not on the right path. Sadly, Eric chose a wrong path. I understand what you're saying but i knew both the girls and they weren't dumb. Naive perhaps, but not dumb. Love sometimes has you tolerate things you think you never would.

They are both good mothers to his kids and that's what matters most now. I know they will raise the kids in a good way......let's hope the kids don't get lost on the wrong path and the cycle is broken!!!!!!!!

All we can do is pray for all of them ..........

I say the odds are not good for these girls and their babies. How do they support these kids? Did this guy have a real job and life insurance?

No he didn't have either but both girls do work and have support from their families and Eric's family. We just have to pray for them..........
