Eric's passion was karaoke. He was absolutely the ultimate music man, who loved singing and encouraged everyone to participate, young and old, no matter how good at singing they were!
The family of Eric Allan Lerner wishes to thank every one of you who cared about him. We are all so blessed to have known Eric.
