Dear family, I am sorry for your loss. May each of you find comfort in knowing that "God is near to those that are broken at heart; and he comforts those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalms 34;18)

Linda, I hope you and your family will forgive me for not coming. I sure do miss his comings and goings and always a wave and a smile. He was a great neighbor. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family

I have a lot of memories of Eddie and it saddens me that he's no longer with us to make more memories. Eddie was one of a kind, no one else that I know compares to him. When his son married my daughter we became more like family to each other. When Landon was dating my daughter, Eddie told him told him to look at the mother and that's what you're wife will be like...It was always a fun time when Eddie was around. You just never knew what he was gonna say. Eddie had a serious side and that's when he spoke of the Bible and God. He knew the word of God like no other. It breaks my heart that you're gone and we can't share in the memories of the granddaughter that we share, Lilah Claire. May you rest in peace.
