Acosta family and Ana,
Our sincerest condolences during this difficult time. You need to know that Eddie touched many lives throughout his lifetime. We will always admire his courage and sense of adventure. Most of all we will miss his laughter and the sunshine he brought into a room. Many times through the years we sat with Eddie, Ana and Juan at our kitchen table or at a local restaurant talking and laughing about various life situations. We will miss his joyous and infectious laughter as Eddie always saw the bright side of life. We will greatly miss our faithful friend. "A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter; the one who finds such a friend finds a treasure. A faithful friend is beyond price, no sum can balance his worth. A faithful friend is a life saving remedy." Eddie you will be forever in our hearts.
Love, David, Bonnie and girls

Eddie you were an integral part of my life growing up. You will be missed dearly. I remember hanging out, about 37 years ago while listening to Billy Joel you asked me if I really believed "that only the good die young" ... My answer is still a resounding, YES! Love you my dear couson.

It is the little things that you will remember - the jokes, the laughs and his thoughtfulness and even though you can not imagine this pain ever going away your memories will push you through. Our condolences to a very loving family.

Comadre Marta, Family, and Ana,
Our deepest condolences go out to you all. What can I say, I felt Uncle Ed was a part of my family as well, these short years of knowing him, he always welcomed us as his own and yes he will be remembered for knowing the GOOD Wines to drink. May the peace of the Lord be with you, your parents, brothers, and Ana. You have another Angel to watch over you all.
Love and Blessings,
Comadre Sylvia R Zuniga and Family (Zuniga's & Renteria's)

Our prayer for the whole Acosta Family is found in God's Word... which is His promise for ALL His children... Revelation 21:4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”... May you rest in peace Ed. With love and respect, Eddie Shamp & family
