Yes, friends, my girlfriend, and relatives
I knew Eric through playing World of Warcraft online, and even know I regretfully never got the opportunity to meet him in real life, I considered him a friend. He and I shared a very similar sense of humor, and we always had a great time whenever we hung out online. Not only has my life been touched and blessed by having Eric be a small part of it, but my girlfriend is a survivor of Leukemia. She was diagnosed at age 3, and went into remission after 3 years of chemotherapy and has been cancer free since age 7.
