Family is know this is a hard pill to swallow,but just know God knew best,Uncle I will miss you terribly. Remember how I would do something and you would get in trouble for it because you were a little bit older then me and Grandma and Daddy Bill would say you should of stopped her,or when we played cops and robbers with the white part of the hanger as guns,or how the family was behind you and you dance groups. Remember everybody thought we were twins because your sister (my mom) and grandma (your mom) would dress us alike,there is just so many memories I could share. Just watch over the family,and give Grandma,Uncle Collie,Uncle Bob,and Uncle Andre a big hug for me. I love you all S.I.P.

Dear Eddie and those who survive him,
I have always carried fond memories of you as my childhood friend from Tulsa, Oklahoma. You were a true inspiration which I hadn’t fully appreciated until later on in life. I owe every single breakdancing move and my first exposures to rap and breakin’ music to you. I never could master the hands free windmill but the head and backspins were probably my signature moves. Oh. And the “poppin”, I think that’s what we called it! I also recall your excitement expressed when you got the Michael Jackson jacket which was about $150 back in the early 80s. I will miss your frantic efforts to vacuum all of our footprints away so your mom would not know you had people in the house when she wasn’t home. 😉. Thank you for being such a positive influence in my life and I only wish I had just a few minutes more so I could share how I’ve carried these precious moments with me, sharing them with people I’ve met along life’s journey for the past 35+ years. Your memory will live on and I will continue to celebrate how awesome you were and continued to be long into adulthood! Oh. Thanks for being a billy badass when you were unfairly attacked by a Puerto Rican group whom we were battling on stage that one night. Sorry about your nose 👃. 😢. Love you brother now and forever!
