It was a honor get to know you over the years my friend and glad my boys got to know you. From the stories in the barber shop, to the lies on the golf course and river banks. I will see you again brother. Have that cranberry and vodka waiting for me. But until then love you brother and I’ll see you on the other side.

Eddie, I know you are in a better place. We had a good visit Sunday night, at first you were scared and by the end of our visit you said you were feeling at ease and at peace. You know I love you and we spoke of just a few if our childhood and adult life memories together, No one can take that from us. You said you would give Mom and Dad a hug for me, I know you will. I love you cuz, rest in peace and enjoy the embraces of our family you are with now and the joy and love of God. I love and will continue to think of you until I join you all

Met Eddie when he worked in Hyde County at the prison. He was one of a kind. Was a good friend and always had a smile on his face. He thrived at making others smile and laugh. So sorry to hear of his passing. Love and prayers to the family.
