Yes Eric had all the chances in the world and threw them away a many times. Sonny & Melba were good parents (probably a little to good).Rest in peace Sonny.Pray for Melba & Sonny's family.
vmn, glad you knew Sonny & Melba-good people.

yes they were such nice people. I will keep them in my prayers. I am still in shock and cannot believe this. I'm so sad for them. Melba is a strong woman and she will survive this.

This is such a terrible thing. I don't know what hapenned to Eric! He was such a cool kid when we were in school. we were really good friends our senior year. I was looking back at pictures of us on Grad Nite, and it just made me tear up that he would do something like this. I am so sorry, I hope you can all move on from this tragedy. I will keep all the family in my prayers. Do you know what hapenned to his sister?

His sister is living in the same town as Melba. My parents were great friends with Melba and Sonny from college on. It is a true tragedy.

Yes it is the same Eric from Pembroke Pines. I've known the family for years and I just found out about this tragidy a few days ago. The family was so nice and would do anything to help anyone - I am in shock!! I knew there were domestic problems because of alcohol but never in my wildest nightmare did I think it would end up like this!! The parents were always offering for Eric to get the help he desperately needed - so sad he never took them up on the offers! I will keep them all in my prayers and please God bring them comfort and healing and be with them always!
