I have so many happy and fun-filled memories of the McElroy clan. Uncle Eddie was so much like my father, John. He was very special to us for that reason and many others. I know Uncle Eddie and Aunt Nora are laughing, kissing, and hugging in Heaven and it is a beautiful thought. God bless both of you and may you rest in peace while forever together in love .
