Eric was a blogger and only days ago he had posted that he and fellow troops were returning to the United States to "rejoin our family and friends and to try to readjust to a certain semblance of what we think life should be. The truth is everything has changed, we collectively have changed.....We collectively have been granted access to something few ever see, or choose to see for that matter.....We have bared witness to the atrocities of war."

Family members describe Eric as their hero. 

Friends have stated that Eric was intelligent, introspective and caring.

Eric is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his wife, Wendi.

Let us pray that Eric Williams is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
