Eddie, cousin, best friend, partner in crime. You were all of those things to me for so many years. I look back, like it was a few years ago, to us running over to the field by Marley's, or the pond to catch frogs, building miniature towns (now would be better described as a fairy house) with only items nature has to offer whether trash, pebbles, sticks, leaves, pine cones.....tall pines trees that created an illusion of a hallway. All of the swamp visits (daily ones at that) to search for old treasure bottles that Grampy would tell us stories about, years later to find out it used to be a dump to some degree, the iodine fro the war Grampy would use on us if we got cut, teaching us to suck it up and not go home unless it was truly determentale, sinking in the mud so deep one of us would have to go get Donny to pull us out, skunk cabbage -love that smell, it was like we were in the jungle, attempts to flip the swing set never stopped, standing on top of the Fisher price log cabin so Alex couldn't reach us. Debbie the pony, hiding in the barn, riding on handle bars, (and flipping me off of them...to then run me over). Mill pond, matching Halloween costumes as Minnie and Mickey, Easter egg hunts, the Sill lane bridge, sledding, not letting you join when I wanted to tan with the big girls (Michelle, Cheryl, Carole, Hollie). Having the carefree ability to run back and forth to each others houses (or to Grammy and Grampys). I thank you for all the childhood memories at Griswold Ave, I am not sure if I could find one that doesn't have you in it, I could continue to write endlessly about everything we did together. You will always be the perfect childhood memory with Alex and the rest of the cousins. Fast foward to our lives as adults. It hard, it's hard to stay in touch with all your loved ones, it's hard to find time and balance between babies, wives, husbands, careers and then to find it deep in yourself for us all to overcome our personal obstacles, and be there for oth
