Georgia, so sorry to hear about Eddie's passing. You guys were really good neighbors. The couple who bought Denise and Brian's house, we never ever see and the one lady living in your house I think we've seen maybe twice. Anyhow we have really missed you guys. Hope Eddie had an easy passing. he was such a nice guy. Sorry Yvette and I will not be able to make the funeral, we both have been housebound with the flu since Monday. Felling a little better today but still may be carrying something and don't want to go into crowds just yet. Georgia please know that you, Eddie and the family are in our prayers and if we can do anything please give us a shout. God Bless, Dutch &Yvette Villarrubia.,
