Tia's Speech to Honor Her Daddy

Parks College/SLU Dedication of Eric's Display Case

My dad wasn't a famous athlete or a teen heart-throb, but he was the best dad in the world and he was a hero. He taught me alot about aviation and mechanics and he also commented on how great Parks was. Someday I hope to become like him, and I truly in my heart want to fulfill his dream and reach for the stars.

Thank you for joining our family in this occasion and I sincerely thank you for setting up this memorial to my daddy. He would have been proud of his school. I know what he'd say to you that want to be pilots..."reach for the stars and never let go".
