I am so sorry about Eric's passing. I'm still in shock. I will cherish the many fond memories we had over the years. I remember you and Omar dressing alike, you eating and humming, and calling each other our nickname lol. I'm gonna miss you bro! This hurts but I promise to try to help ease the kids' pain. I can't be there due to circumstances beyond my control. I wish I would've called you that night instead of waiting until tomorrow. Tomorrow never came! Love Dani!

To The Family of Eric Eugene Dorsey;

There isn’t any way to prepare for the loss of a family member. Suddenly, the loved one you had always turned to is gone. In the quiet moments when the hurt is hard to bear, may love become your shelter and may the beauty of memories become comfort.

You have the condolences of the members of St. Paul’s A.M.E. Church as you make your way through this passage. It won’t be easy, but you can rely on the support of all your friends and church family. May you be filled with faith and hope even in the midst of inescapable grief, and find comfort in and with each other. Eric will be missed by everyone.

Words cannot adequately express our sympathy, but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Eric must have been a remarkable person. Just look around at his family and friends that are here to celebrate his life and his Home Going service.

“Don’t’ weep at my grave, for I am not there,
Ive a date with a butterfly to dance in the air.
I’ll be singing in the sunshine, wild and free,
Playing tag with the wind, while I’m waiting for thee”

In His Service Always,

Rev. Alfred L. Thompson, Jr.
And the members of St. Paul’s A.M.E. Church

To my former husband Eric-
What can I say? You were my partner in life for so many years... the only man I married. Father of my children. I still remember the day we met- you had on that long leather coat and I thought to myself- "He thinks he's cool, trying to be like Neo from the Matrix!" (smile)
I remember you collecting your Marvel comic books like X-Men and X-Factor and how excited you were when a special edition came out. I remember how you loved Star Wars and forced us to watch it over & over again until eventually we learned to love it just as much as you! I remember that same silly dance you used to do (the only one you knew) & the way you would put the kids in check military-style (like your own little army troop) when they got outta hand- "Line up- oldest to youngest" you would say- giving them instructions & always ending with all yelling in unison "Dorseys Forever!" Your trips to the library and puppet shows and playing in the park with the kids. Your passion & knowledge for electronics and gadgets. We made so many memories.
I know how much you loved your children and even though we had moved on in our lives, we still had love for each other. Your children and I will love & miss you dearly and will carry you in our hearts always! Love- Lisa & your children Aisha, Alaisha, Tamera & Omar.

I just found out about Eric's passing & would like to send my condolences to his family & friends. I knew him from when he worked at Radio shack & I worked in Sears in 95-97. He was always so nice & I loved being able to talk & laugh with him when we'd see each other in the mall. He was a great guy & will be missed!!!!
