I was so sorry to learn of Eric’s passing. Eric and I sat next to each other in classes from 6th grade at Aylor through 12th at James Wood, when we were placed alphabetically by last name. I remember a few years when his arms and legs seemed too long for him to fully control; I once told him I was jealous that I’d stopped growing as he shot even further up. He was a kind, funny, mild-mannered, hard-working guy. I always smile when I think of him. He is missed.

May everyone find peace within this tragedy. May family's hold stronger together. May families learn to forgive and accept others faults. May families not judge one another and learn by Eric's example of living. May families learn to grow together, for blood is thicker than water. Let us remember Eric would want us to forgive and forge new relationships with each other as a family. Let us honor each other by doing this for Eric because we loved him. [email protected]

I didn't know Eric or your family, but I read the obituary in the newspaper and want to say thank you for sharing that he had a long battle with mental illness. A person's brain can be ill just as one's pancreas (or heart, lungs, etc) can be ill. My daughter is about the same age and has lived with mental illness since she was a young woman. I'm glad Eric had his family to love him completely. My prayers are with you all.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Uncle Eric was the most accepting and caring person in my family. Growing up around him was a privilege and I will always treasure the time I was able to spend with him. He never judged or looked down on anyone for who they were and saw the best in everybody around him. I owe a lot of what I am today to the time I spent so th Eric. I can vividly remember learning what a Rubik cube was from Eric and how to solve it over time or hearing stories about his time in the scouts and believe that moments like these drove me to be the driven, inquisitive, problem solver I am today. Eric Clark was a great uncle and an even better person and my world has been forever impacted by the time I spent with him.

Eric, I remember when you were born. I was entering the first grade. When you were little you said “gink” because you could not say drink. I pulled you around the yard in the wagon. Our first camping trip was the blanket over a rope tent under the swing set in the back yard. We rode all day on the sled that Christmas we had an ice storm. We put on heavy boots and ponchos to hike two hours in that heavy rain just to see what it is like. It is cold, but we did it. We sang so many camp songs together at Rock Enon. That was one of our happiest places. I helped you get your first merit badge. Wood carving. You didn’t cut yourself and you loved knives since. You were 12, seems so young now, when I left for the Air Force. While home on leave it was us out camping with scouts again, and you followed me into the rain swollen Shenandoah river and we saved a man from drowning. You were 16 when I was discharged, driving, wow, a child when I left and a young adult when I returned ! You graduated High School and became the first of us children to get married and have a child. Your son is such a wonderful young man. You were always loved, Eric. Through it all and still to this day. I saw the love you gave to my son when he was little, the toys you always had to give him and how you played like a child with him. I watched you accept my wife’s love because although you were not very physically affectionate you would hold her hand while talking and you would always hug her. My condolences to all who are dealing with this tragedy. Love and peace to all who need it. Your brother Brian loves you Eric. I always have, never stopped, never will.

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference." - Robert Frost

My deepest sympathies to the entire Clark family. Eric was my cousin on my Mothers side, I have many memories of him as a young child growing up, as it is with all families we grow up and move away, but our distant family always remain in our heart. I know Eric is at peace now, and no longer suffering from the uncontrollable thoughts that a mental illness can cause. The Lord is merciful, rest now my dear cousin. Until we all meet again.

Cathy Kammerer left a message on November 20, 2020:
To the entire Clark family, I’m sorry I never got to meet Eric before he passed but I have heard so many stories of him from Steven over the last 7 years that I can imagine he would be happy that so many of you loved him so much despite his illness and wanted him to have a happy and meaningful life. The way we honor important People in our lives is by telling stories and reliving memories of good times you have had with them and I know your family will continue to remember and share these stories with each other as a way to keep him in your lives. I hope that God who can give you peace that surpasses understanding can lift the burden of sorrow off of your hearts so you can continue to honor each other with love with the time you have left on the earth because loving each other is what a family is all about. May God bless you and strengthen every one of you as you travel through your grief. My thoughts and prayers and love is with each and every one of you. Love, Cathy Kammerer (Steven’s fiancé).

For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ." (2 Corinthians 1:3-5) Condolences to the entire family and all who loved him. Praying that your family is comforted by the Lord during this difficult time.
