Julie,Robin,Chuck,and all of the Waldrop family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Anyone who ever met Eddie was always greeted with warm smile. He was always very nice to me and I won't forget that. I pray for all of you to get through these difficult times - to have a measure of comfort knowing that he is with the Lord and is no longer in any pain. God Bless all of you.

Please accept my deepest prayers and my condolences for this very tragic loss. I served with Ed as a volunteer at Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center for several years. I can only imagine the sorrow and feelings of loss you must be experiencing. I can say, Ed will be remembered as a multi talented person Who will most certainly live on in the lives of all of us who were blessed to call him friend. I am sure he is rejoicing with the angels in the presence of Jesus. Rest easy my friend. I love you Ed.

Dear Robin & Julie,
I was so saddened to see this first thing this morning. My heart goes out to you both (and all of the family/friends touched by this great loss). I have very fond memories of Eddie from high school. I will keep you both in my prayers. If your path ever crossed Eddie's even once during your lifetime, you will feel this loss greatly. May God grant to you, his peace. fondly, Janan

My condolences to Ed's family, friends, loved ones. Ed and I were chaplains at Charlie Norwood VA. When either of us was having a rough day, we got together to download. Ed always listened, would never often advice, and "got in my face" when I needed it. I loved him for that and will deeply miss him. He was a unique, gifted, and wonderful person.

I was a Physician Assistant at the CNVACMC in Augusta, Ga. I also served on the Chaplains Commitee. Chaplain Waldrop made a lasting impression on all the veterans with whom he came in contact. He will be missed.txn
