Not sure what to say?

Edward Eiland was a gentleman in the truest sense -- a man of extraordinary generosity, humility, and self-discipline. As his nephew, I would like also to pay tribute to Nancy Kirkendall and to my cousin Stephanie Cohn Goldberg for their continuing dedication, good judgment, and resourcefulness in his behalf.

One of the Kindest people I have ever known. A true friend and I am a better person from my association with him.

My deepest sympathy to the Eiland family for this loss. Mr. Eiland was a beloved attorney for Logan County and a personal friend to me for many years as well as his lovely wife Evelyn and son, Pete. My deepest prayers also to his law partner of many years, John W. Bennett, and his secretary, my Aunt, Nancy Kirkendall. I know this is a tremendous loss for you both and my thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

We at B'nai Sholom Congregation in Huntington have always been grateful for Mr. Eiland's support. We will be sad to fulfill the mitzvah of his burial on Friday.

I only had a few interactions with Mr. Eiland when I with the fire department, but he was always willing to listen or offer a smile.
