The world lost a fantastic man on March 16, 2012. Eric Curtis Linstead passed away at the age of 48 after complications from Multiple Sclerosis. "Big E" fought a heroic war and went on his own terms and by his own wishes. His memory will live on in his wife of 27 years, Jane and his two children, Spencer and Samantha. He completed a book of inspirational quotes, B+ (his blood type), that will be available for purchase soon. The details will come later as his family publishes it. The book was completed the afternoon of 2/23/12, the day that Eric went into the hospital. Through his family's inventory of his possessions they have came across another unfinished book of his thoughts that will be put together for the world to have in the coming months as well. His wishes are not to have a religious service but instead a "Celebration of Life" that will occur on April 14th, 2012 from 11am to 5pm at his family's residence. This will be an event about sharing the memories, laughter and inspiration that Eric has given us throughout his years. Please feel free to post comments, photos, and memories on Eric's Facebook page or send them by email to his family. These memories will be shared at the celebration and will give strength to his family in their time of need. "I may not be able to do all the good the world needs, but the world needs all the good I can do" - Eric Curtis Linstead September 6, 1963 - March 16, 2012
