I'm truly saddened by your loss. I grew up in Old Hickory and also, Mr. Eddie has came with the DuPont crew to my school for several years. My students loved him. He had such a zest for life. I will always remember that sweet smile. He will truly be missed! May God bless you during the days to come.

Eddie was a good man. He was a good Christian and Bill and I were fortunate to call him both friend and teacher during our years at Old Hickory Nazarene. I send condolances to the family and know that Heaven has welcomed another wonderful soul. In Christian love, Pam Nichols
