    It was one year ago today that Eric passed away. :(

    Please take a moment to remember him today.


    (I know this is off topic for this Forum, but I think this is an exception to the rule.)

    I miss the ole feller, too. I enjoyed emailing Eric and chatting with him at ungodly hours on AOL. I miss winding him up about his beloved Dixie Choppers and all in good fun, of course. Lawncare does not have the same meaning for me since Eric left for greener pastures. :(

    If there was a lawn mowing Hall of Fame, he should be inducted, as the first and only inductee.

    Thank you for posting this! He is in my daily thoughts. Eric was never too busy to help.

    I believe Dixie Chopper should introduce the "ELM" or Erickson model for all he did for them :)

    Keith, thats a great idea; if only Dixie Chopper would take the initiative. He was a great man, its too bad passed on, but only to a better place. God Bless.

    This is an excellent thread.

    I began browsing LS last year in April sometime, and I registered soon after.

    Although Eric passed before I arrived here, I have learned much from him, and about him.

    I think I can safely say that those who knew him, personally, or from LS, are very lucky.

    To all Eric's done for all of us ---> :drinkup:
