The Talk didn't air today because WWMT3 carried the funeral of Kalamazoo Officer Eric Zapata. It still recorded whatever was on during that time.  So I had a chance to learn a little bit about Eric Zapata the man, the friend, the family man.  This Eric, he sounded like such a special guy.  Officer VanderKlok shared so many stories about him and it was difficult for Officer VanderKlok to go on at times.  I so felt for him.  But he did make me feel like I learned alot about Eric the man and frined.  He made me feel like I knew who Eric was, a bit more.  There were lots of tears & sadness & his one friend was so funny. He lightened up the room by saying something in Spanish, and then he said, "Growing up, if me and Eric saw this many cops we'd be running."  The whole room erupted with laughter.  GodSpeed Eric Zapata also known as EZ, for his way of putting everyone he met at ease.
