    From what I can gather Eric died from sadness and a broken heart literally.

    I get it, Eric was really ill he didnt have much time left on this earth that much is clear.

    What I don't understand is why his caretaker and parents put so much stress on him at the end and caused his death earlier than probably would have been. Why didnt he stay with Eric a few more days?

    I just dont understand why they put him through what they did?

    Jon was leaving to go take care of his own parents.
    He gave Eric plenty of notice.
    You really can't fault him in any way.

    I do believe that Eric decided that it was time to say goodbye for good.
    I really will miss the little guy.

    This seems to be exactly the situation. No one was a fault. Just a sad deal.

    Did he have the same issue as Hank? Basically adult-sized organs squeezed into a tiny body?

    He was club-fucking-hearted. That's all there is to it.

    Jon basically murdered him by abandoning him.

    Oh, I am not trying to lay the blame on anyone. It's just sad that the little fellow had to endure so much grief at the end.

    I thought maybe Jon had to leave so Eric could go into hospice? Maybe they knew how sick he was, so Jon wasn't qualified to care for him?
    Just a guess...

    Well we certainly wasn't going to get the answer from Stern. It's all about Stern and his lovely wife.

    Actually, I think Jon gave Eric the space he needed to have a small bit of freedom.
    You know, not treating him like a complete basket case.

    I think Eric was actually very brave in his last days.
    I firmly believe he knew his time was up and wanted Jon to be able to leave
    with a clear conscience and heart.

    At least Eric lived his life on his own terms.
    How many of use can say the same.

    RIP Eric.

    Hank was a dwarf and I believe Eric is a "little person". Hank died from complications due to alcoholism. Not sure exactly what Eric's issue was. They were always sort of vague about that.
