For those of us who can't make the Hurst service, I'd like to see candles lit at Bownanza or some other kind of tribute. A remembrance is in order. I know there will be many a toast. I'm sure the powers that be will figure something out.

God bless the Pence family.

God bless Eric.

Eric was such a good man. Men that devoted to their family are rare to find now a days. Always willing to give back to their passion (hunting) without the need for anything in return.

Alan and I got to spend a little time with him a couple months ago in a happenstance meeting in Brady and were fortunate to do so, just dint expect it to be the last.

Rest well brother, you will be missed.

Sad news. I too knew Eric and his family from the TTHA Fish Tank gatherings. I always enjoyed visiting with him. He seemed to genuinely care about me and my family while visiting at those events. May God bless him and his family. **** cancer!!!!!

Rest easy, Mr. Pence.

So glad Jim (keep) and I got to catch up with you by chance in Brady just a few weeks ago. Of course you were headed to hunt with one of your boys!

Eric exemplified all that is good about TBH and all that is good about mankind. Always ready to help a fellow out, and he made you feel like you were important to him.

As has been already said multiple times, his devotion and love to his family was foremost whenever he posted! My goodness, he was proud of Austin and Tyler, and his love for Kelly was so evident! We all admired how he held his family up for the world...to showcase his love for his 3 best friends. Exemplary!!! That is how marriages should be, and we learned from him!

The good ones; it seems like they die too soon. We are all better off for knowing Eric!

Brother, you lived a good life, and you fought a good fight. Rest easy until we see you again.
