I worked the night shift many years ago at H&V.
Eddie was one of many who work nights that kept the mood positive during those times. Always telling me I left my headlights on as a prank.
I told him his tire was flat in return.
We worked together briefly in the stock prep dept and was great to work with!

I will miss you Heriberto.

Husband, brother, uncle, friend he was the most loving, kind and sincere person. He was my uncle and even though I didn't get to spend a lot of time with him I loved him so much. His love for his wife was priceless because spending the little time I had with them you could see it in his eyes, the way he talked to her and treated her I knew he loved he so much. His love for his brothers and sisters throughout the years was special. He always staying connected with each of them via phone calls or letters. He loved his family very dear. His nephews and nieces had a special place in his heart and he kept all the pictures in his special place. He kept them all and he kept connected to know what everyone was doing. I didn't get to spend a lot of time like I would wanted but I loved him so much. The last time I saw him was very special. I will forever cherished see him and embracing his warm hug. Every now and then he will call me and we either talked or he will leave me messages. "Judy this is your Tio Eric", "Just checking on you to see how you are doing", "know that I love you" "God bless You" ...I have his voice engraved in my heart and I still could hear his voice. Tio will always be my special uncle. He will be missed by his dear wife, his sisters and family but I will miss him too. I pray that God welcome his soul into His kingdom and that Tio gets reunited with his parents and brothers in heaven. I pray for comfort and understanding for the family during this difficult process. I pray that God continue taking care of Priscilla's journey and that He will bring comfort to her life. We have lost someone dear to our life but heaven has gained an Angel. His love, legacy and friendship will forever be in our hearts. Rest in peace my dear Tio. I love you yesterday, today and will forever. Bendicion!!!!

In the 35 years that I worked with Eddie he was one of my closest friends. He made working a pleasure not a hardship. I knew that everyday that I came to work that he would be there to brighten up my day. I can still remember the last time he came into my office in the maintenance department I was just sitting at my desk and turned around and there he was with this big, bright smile. He will truly be missed. With deepest sympathy. George Vinson
