I am so sorry to hear of Eddie's passing. I remember his soft, loving care and attention to you Dalina when you both joined events downstairs at our apartments in Fairfield. He was a true gentleman. It was a honor meeting him.
I am holding you in my heart as you go through your grief. I am sending prayer to you and the family.

Our deepest sorrow at the lost of your husband, father and grandfather. We were so blessed to know Eddie even though we met him less than 3 years ago.
He was a sweet, soft spoken man who loved his family. He will be missed greatly.
May God give you all comfort, peace and strength and memories to cherish.
