Searching the net the other day and noticed the story about Eric Weemes. Had a good friend in the navy late early 90's who's name is Eric Weemes. Does anyone know if this is the same Eric that had his life taken away by his wife. If so we would have served together in the philipines
not sure

Hey Carson, if you're the one looking for Eric, I've been looking for you. Call the campus at Durant and ask for Social Sciences. I'm still there.

I've just learned of this news....Eric went into the military shortly after myself...I went Army Infantry and he later followed suit and manned up and joined the Navy. We were teenage best friends and were unseperable. His mother, father, and both sisters were great friends. I got out of the military in 1992 and drove by Durant, Ok and told him that me and my fianc'e were pregnant and due in April 1993, but I know now that that would be the last time I would see him, but I wish I would have known then, I might have said some different things. Eric was one of the guiding and unselfish people I've ever had the honor of being a brother to. I will cry now knowing that he caught some tough breaks but always defended me like a little brother. If any of Erics family is listening please contact me as soon as possible. I've missed him for some time and evidentally I always will. That makes my two best friends ever ...gone...before me. I, as many of us..are at lost. Be well Eric Sandor Weemes, I will miss you and see you in the end. Love Scott
