I've been fortunate to meet Eric in Malta, he was such a wonderful
guy. I learned much from him and always enjoyed our email exchanges,
when I finally met him, I though he was just one of those guys that
you simply need to meet. I remember we talking about Brazil and
cheese... I am still stunned and somewhat speechless. I've read all
the emails, not believing all this. My thoughts goes with his familly
I'll miss him very much...
Farewell Eric, thanks for everything.
