Eddie, something just made me think of you so I tried to find you. I had no idea you were gone and I'm so sorry I didn't have a chance to see you again. Rest in peace my friend.

Eddie was a good friend of mine at UGA. We were both on the UGA rugby team. Haven't kept in touch over the years and was heartbroken to hear of his death. God speed my friend. Hugh Wright

Eddie was my friend and a good fellow, whose company I enjoyed at McCallie School and Georgia Law School. We listened to Georgia football games together at McCallie and played rugby together at Georgia. I am saddened to learn of his death. I want to express my sympathy to all of the members of his family. May he rest in the wonderful place that our Lord has prepared for him. William Eugene (Gene) Jessup, Duluth, GA

Eddie was a very talented individual. We always liked to see him come home from McCallie. He was a "chick magnet". I'll miss you Edgar.
