We will all miss Eddie and work will not be the same. His family is in our thoughts and prayers. We will be praying for you during this time of mourning.

We moved next door to Mr. White shortly after Harvey hit Port Arthur, I met Mr. White and his family and they were always so nice and are great neighbors. It was a pleasure to see Mr. White going on errands in his pick up truck. (His pride and joy) What a lovely family, you will be missed. God Bless.

Wow, I was so shocked, I will miss him terribly. I have had the pleasure of cutting this hard working mans hair for years now and thought of him as my family, and Brian also. So sorry for your loss.
