Dear Mark, Ken, Leslie, Judy, Brent, Darlene, Retha, & Yvonne,

Thank all of you for letting be at the Hospital with Eddie. Eddie was absolutely one of the best friends I ever had. I always considered him family and I will miss him dearly. I know I will re-unite with him in Heaven.

Please accept our condolences to Eddie's family at their time of loss. I grew up in Beardstown with Eddie, Darlene, and Reatha. Our parents (Harris' and Nicholsons)were the best of friends and all were part of our church family. In 2009 Eddie became a facebook friend after the death of my mother. He loved talking about his family and was looking forward to Christmas with grandkids. His last message was to "stop by" when I visit my family in Texas. Well, Eddie, I will see you again, but not in Texas.

My deepest condolences to Eddie from a distant relation (possibly) in Denny Scotland.
I met Eddie online via Paltalk.
God Bless you my friend and Rest in Peace

I never met Eddie in Person, but I did have plans to Travel to Montgomery in the cooler time this year, and to further Travel onto Glasgow (Scotland) to meet another dear friend, Matt Harris.
Please accept my Deepest Condolances for Eddie, who passed away, ( I guess I was too Late )

Eddie and I grew up in houses right across the road on 6th St. in Beardstown. We were friends all thru school until I and he left. As with all friends we had many good times as kids but also managed to have some children's wars. He and I did manage in later years to become reacquainted via the web cam and e-mail. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Eddie and I met in1985 in Copperas Cove Tx. on the CB Radio, He used to go by (the Dealer) and I was (starlight). I finally got to meet him in person and became very good friends and got to meet his family ( Judy, Lesle, Mark, Ken and later Evonne). We shared lots of memories together, fishing, eating out, hanging out together, etc. Eddie, you will be missed dearly. I know you will be in a better place and won't have to suffer anymore. God bless his family. my condolances go out to his family and friends.
