    I’m very sorry for your loss, Eric was a great person to work with. This is a great loss for his company Sympler and all of us as their costumers. He was one of the BEST, he was one of a kind that is for sure, never knew why, but know I do! He was always there for his little girl, his family and customers. Thank you for all you did for us at Baystate Health, Medical Staff Office. You will never be forgotten. I will keep you and you family in my prayers.
