Praying for the family of Eddie. Growing up with my cousin, Eddie, as my play mate many time over, was some of my best memories as a child. He was just as kind and big hearted then as he was as a man. I know he is with his Mom, Dad and Jackie. No longer in pain. Thank you Jesus for giving me such an awesome cousin. ❤❤
