I was fortunate enough to spend a summer with Tio Eddie, Titi Linda, Jessica, Xiomara and Jennifer. We went out on the lancha and spent nights out on the ocean. Got to ride in his cool antique cars and ate baby cow brain for the first time. Drove to the beaches and ate Alcapurrias and had a beer with my Titi Linda. And my cousins and I made memorable memories in Culebra. One of my favorite summers ever. Most recent memory is when Tio and Titi came from Puerto Rico after the hurricane and began unbreakable 4some with my parents. Whether going to Panera for soup or Ross on Tuesdays for their 10% discount, or taking my Dad to radiation treatements for his cancer. Since I was little and now that I am older they have shown me what family is all about. Tio Eddie you may go now and Rest In Peace, as you have shown the world what a gentleman, scholar, father and amazing Uncle you were to all. Descanse en paz. Love you Tio
