My deepest condolences to the Petras family. I worked with Eddie at the Weymouth Landing P.O. and was so happy I got to know him. We had a lot of laughs with that "crew". Eddie himself brought tears to our eyes...but that was due to other reasons....we all loved him! Some of his customers on his old route still ask for him. He was a great guy with a lousy poker face! May you rest in peace comrade.
