Not sure what to say?

Brenda, I always considered you and Eddie to be earthly angels. Eddie has now earned his wings. My prayers are with you and your family.


I was shocked and saddened to hear of Eddie's passing. I consider myself lucky to have known a man of such honor and character. He changed the course of my brother Rick's life – offering him kindness, friendship and a generosity of spirit uncommon today. We will always remember and keep him in our hearts. God Bless him. Brenda, I have no words to describe my sorrow at your loss of this fine man. You are in my heart and prayers.

deeply sorry for the loss of a good,hardworking,American,who had a gracious heart who made a better world of happiness for sick people. G.Ed Pittman told me back in the 80's that he knew Eddie as we drove by the convalescent home. I was happy to be able to meet him as for he helped care for a couple friends of mine, I met in 2010 going to Hendersoville Health Care. Toni M.(Maryland) and Jeff H.(N.C.) reside in a complex I saw Eddie,his wife,Brenda and family members improve their living...
