My family shares the loss of your loved one. For many years, Eddie, Paul Smith and several others came to Artesia, NM to deer hunt with my husband and our sons, Jimmy and Craig. Jim has since passed. There were many stories told of their gatherings around the campfires and many my sons will share with their children. My boys will cherish many memories of Eddie. He was a special man. He loved his family and will be missed and remembered by many.
Blessings and love to you family.
