Dear Kay, we are so sorry to hear of the passing of your son. People mention his sense of humor, which makes me think he must have taken after his Dad. Though it's natural to grieve, try to remember, instead, the joy he brought to your life and the lives of the many people missing him. ...The Ladd Sisters, Jude Wallace & Virginia Donnelly

I met Eddie on Cape Cod several years ago with my husband, Grant Sheehan.

He and Sean were playing poker. I wanted join them but Eddie made it quite clear girls were not allowed.

I teased him every time I saw him for discrimination.

He always responded with a big bear hug and a smile.

He was dear to me. I am sorry that he is not coming to the next NCOFCU conference.

Grant and I are truly sorry for your loss but we are so glad to have known him.

Big Hug and Kiss to my friend's family.
