So sad to hear of 'Eddies' passing, for that is what his cousins called him. Since I usually saw him up at the cabins, he was always into the sporting activities like cross country skiing and hunting and then of course, we could hear his beautiful piano as he played wafting over the path between the two places. His laugh was as unique as his beliefs which he remained faithful to and wrote about. He was an accomplished man. I know he is missed. Condolences to Tim and Carmela.
