I regret having lost touch with "E" over the years. Actually, I just saw this for the first time. I am deeply saddened.
I hadn't seen Eddie since we were quite young and crazy. I loved him dearly. He had a way of seeing right through to the core of any issue - remarkable actually.
I have been and believe that I will always be influenced by the honesty and integrity that he displayed in those years that we were close friends.
I hope we meet again some day in the beyond.
