| Several years ago, the Pickens family moved to town|
Bill, Lois, Marie, David, Billy and Eric settled down
I remember watching those young boys at play
Football, basketball, softball they played all day
Eric was special as the youngest son
He loved to fish and hunt and have fun
He and his brothers spent many hours at my house
You can be sure they were not quiet as a mouse
At Pierce County High school Eric was a football star
His competitive nature and athletic ability carried him far
He gave a hundred percent and competed with all his might
Now he has fought his last fight
We can't understand the reasons why
Eric was so young and had to die
Our Heavenly Father knows what is best
Eric was tired and now is at rest
He leaves behind a grieving wife, a daughter and son
In his eyes they were number one
His loving mother and father he hated to leave
He knew how they and his brothers and sister would grieve
These words he would speak to comfort them
I trusted in Jesus, have faith in Him
I will see you again on that heavenly shore
Where sorrow and pain is no more
