Remember Eric working as Santa and using all of his money and even stealing presents from his own family to give the kids presents and hope
Remember when Eric dated a woman with a kid and was all in ready to love her and her child like his own
Remember when Eric became a big brother to Tommy seeing him every weekend and eventually trying to ADOPT him because he loved him so much but then let him go because it was what was best?
Do y'all understand how amazing Eric Mathews is?
And on another note can we talk about how fine Eric was?
