Not sure what to say?

Big Eddie , went to school , played football with him. Honored to have known him . Gentle giant.RIP Ed

I was a classmate at Sardis High School, where Eddie was one of the good guys. Didn't know him well, but he was always nice to me. This obituary was so beautifully written. Every guy I know would love to leave this kind of legacy, where the children feel so honored to have had this man as their father. So very special. Blessings to all the family, and prayers for your comfort at this difficult time.

So sorry to hear of Eddie's passing. He was always special and we will always remember him with precious memories. We love all of you. Fred and Patti Farley

I'll miss you buddy!

When someone we love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure. Therefore, treasure the special times spent with Edward-draw strength from the love of family and friends-and may God's word and his loyal love comfort you and help you through this difficult time. Psalms 119:50,76

Please accept my condolences for your loss, may the God of all comfort, comfort you during this time. (Matthew 5:4)
