Dear Debbie & Family,
Irene let me know about Eddie's passing. I was so sorry to hear this. I lost Earl almost 11 months ago and know truly what you are going through. I will be hard and some days you wonder if you are going to make it. Think of all your happy times, they will help you make it through. Some days are going to be harder than others and memories pop up right out of the blue that will bring on the tears. This is going to be one of the hardest things you have ever had to...

No one can explain why such a tragedy happens. It's easy to be mad at God when something like this happens, but know that God will wait for you to come back and that He will never leave your side. It sounds like you and Eddie had a great life together. Use those memories to keep Eddie alive in your heart. You will have days when you think everyone else has forgotten the pain that you feel, but know that we are all still thinking and praying for you. It doesn't seem like 40+ years since...

Eddie was our "mailman" at Summit Ridge apartments. He was a joy to talk to and the few times we were able to visit it always reminded me of the saying "still waters run deep". He had a great laugh and enjoyed life, he will be missed. I am praying for you and your family at this time of great loss. God bless you.

I have always treasured our times together. Eddie had the ability to make a person feel like what they had to say was the most important thing in the world. The world was better place when he was here. He will live on in our hearts and memories. There is rejoicing now in the reunion of those gone before us. Those who follow him will be greeted by his wonderful smile and a hug. May God Bless Debbie and Elaina with a mantle of peace to get them through this loss. Proud to. Be...
