Eddy and I were in the same grade from grammar school at John A. Patton and Central High until I married after our junior year. We also attended Lookout Valley Baptist Church. I am the daughter of Newton and Virginia Ryan also the sister of Cheryl, Debra, and Alan. Your family holds a lot of precious memories for me and I am sad to see yet another friend from my youth pass. Mrs. Dora was so precious to me with her kind heart. Just remembering all the things we did as youth like the hay rides to Camp Dixie puts a smile on my face. May God grant you the ability to remember all the good times you shared and give you his peace.

We always compared vehicles and cleaning products. Most people would call us obsessive...we didn’t care. Me and you...we spoke the same language. We made Doris and Momma cover their ears! When I walked out of a room, or hung up the phone, the last thing you would say is...I love you! We will say that again one day! What a day that will be!

RIP Eddie. I will always remember you as an easy to talk to person that always showed interest in what was going on in my life. The world could use a few more like you. Until we meet again......
