    Eddie, you were a wonderful man and father. I have fond childhood memories of you with Chris and I. I remember you playing cards with my dad at our house and you and Lois coming over on Christmas mornings. Now you and my mom are looking over all of us. Rest peacefully Eddie. You will be greatly missed.

    Dad, You were always there for me, whether teaching me something or getting me out of a sticky situation. You taught me the essentials, like riding a bike, throwing a baseball, and getting through middle school math classes. However, the most important thing you taught me was how to be a good man. Your kindness, empathy, and leadership are all things that I will never forget. Thank you Dad for showing me the way. I hope I made you proud. You’ll always be loved and remembered.
