    Eric's Last Wishes

    Anybody read/watch this article + video series from the DM Register? Wow... what a fantastic story. The outlook and focus this young man had in life was tremendous, and his family's path after tragedy is a must read.

    Yea, he was a friend of mine and he was a great guy(goes without saying if you read/watch the story). If you can make it through that with a dry eye you're tougher than me.

    The author is a wonderful guy, too. He's been excited to get this story out there for a while, especially the last couple of weeks.
    I'm really glad to have read this.

    It's the best piece I've seen in the Des Moines Register in a very long time.

    No dry eyes here. My coworkers looked at me a little funny as I teared up yesterday.

    Sorry for the repost. I searched for "eric" and didn't see it.
