Eddie loved telling us about the adventures he and Jimmy had. He would laugh the entire time while sharing the details. He loved those times with Jimmy. He also brought us up to date on the grandchildren that he loved so much. He was special and will be missed by all who knew him. Max & Deanne Turner
