Bring Eric Home and Memorial

Eric Benitez (20 y/0)
There were no words to describe how Fiona, Eric's mother, felt  at one in the morning when she recieved the news of the death of her eldest son.  He could light up a room when he walked in, always smiling, life of the party, most silliest guy anyone could have ever met. If anyone knew him, the knew of joy and laughter. Although he did have his days, no one coud deny the impact he made on everyone's lives.

No one ever knows what goes through the mind of anybody behind closed doors.  These doors were opened and revealed the most tragic sight. Eric had hung himself. The sound of glass shattering or the taste of sorrow would be heaven compared to the feelings that are rushing through his family's minds. Questions pop up like rain on a sunny day. Why?

Most people ask if there is anything they can do for the family. Yes, there is. We would really appreciate if he could be properly cremated and brought home. Anything helps. We would like to have him home soon as possible. 

Thank you and God bless.
