Angela just let me know that Eric Webb (24), the young man in the white t-shirt and shorts, was killed in a motorcyle accident last night.
A news report says that he died at the scene of the accident.
Eric was one of my favourite students at PSU. Everyone called him Lil'E in affectionate terms. He made me laugh and impressed me with his dedication to his studies.
Eric leaves behind a wife and two daughters. My heart goes out to his family.
Fellow students and friends can contact Angela Canton (503-725-9082) in Black Studies for more information.
May God rest Eric's soul. Life was no doubt too short for this very talented brother.
Peace dear brother Erica!
