These type of postings are getting hard and harder to write. Today I learned another friend and former co-worker passed away from cancer.
On Sunday, Riverside City Firefighter/Paramedic Eric Botkin passed succumbed to his fight with cancer. I do not know if this is classified as a LODD yet. More information to follow.
You can read more about Eric and his journey at his blog- http://ericbotkin.blogspot.com
Side note- I have been in the fire service about 23 years and this is another friend/co-worker that has passed away from cancer. With tears in my eyes, I just dont know what to say?

Eric will be missed by all of us at the RFD.
Don't worry about Hallie and Hunter, they will be taken care of by your RFD family.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Brett.
My deepest sympathies to the Riverside City Fire Department, Botkin family and Eric's friends and loved ones.
Rest peacefully in the arms of the angels, Eric.
Kind of hard to pass on my condolences to Bou considering the WT booted him off for some strange reason.
