Celebrating Eric House's Life

Friends gathered Sunday afternoon to remember their friend Eric House on what would have been his 19th birthday. They walked down Deaverview Road to Honeysuckle and down Homeway Road the scene of last Octobers deadly scooter accident in West Asheville.

And boom, it was over I didnt even remember seeing the car in front of us, said Kadie Parker who survived her boyfriends fatal scooter wreck when he accidentally hit a truck. Kadie had serious injuries including a broken leg, pelvis, two broken arms and a head injury. Kadie joined her friends including Naomi Hudgins who organized the walk to celebrate Erics life.

We are trying to make it a better day for his family, said Hudgins. And seeing everybody here was important. Not make it a mourning day because he's gone, but a day that he would want to be happy.

Erics friends held posters during the walk to honor Eric and celebrate his birthday. His friends hope to organize an even larger event next year.
