I will always remember Eddie and his beloved wife, Vera, in their Eastchester home with my parents, and then visiting them in their Danbury home. The four of them were such good friends. Eddie and Vera were also like family to me and my sisters. I will treasure the memories of all those times around the table together, whether just sitting for hours over cake and coffee, playing cards or celebrating a life event. May Eddie be reunited in eternal life with his family and friends.
