Heliproz, the next big question
Will the family continue to run Heliproz or possibley sell it?

This isn`t meant to be a mean spirited question with Eric just passing, just curious.

Uh -- It was HIS baby! Eric was Heliproz. I certainly hope the business succeeds and goes on. It would be a great legacy. Much like Rick's continues on under the direction of Ron Lund.

Correct if I am wrong and maybe I am but this is nothing like Rick's.
Rick's has always been Ron Lund and nobody passed away to make it that way.

This needs to be PM'ed to Kurt and let him handle how much or how little he wants to talk about. I'm sure that all will be revealed in time. Eric needs to be laid to rest first.

Eric hasn't been the owner of heliproz for a while, he sold few months back due to illness.
The new owner's name is listed on the heliproz website. I am sure that even though he will be missed, the business will operate same as it always has.
Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

So Uh -- dkshema -- Uh maybe get -- Uh -- your facts -- Uh -- correct -- Uh -- before typing -- Uh --

All the best to the family and friends, it is always a sad day when someone close to you dies.

For your information and to clear the confusion.
Heliproz was sold to a new owner several months ago and has been operating just the same for all that time.

My condolences to Eric's family.
