My first memories of Uncle Eddie were that he was a gentle giant. A very calm and patient man, but his laugh was unique, as he laughed often. I am sad to see him leave this earth, but I know his faith was strong and he deserves his place in Heaven. As we have more angels in heaven today, It brings me joy that my family, Mom ,Dad, Debra and Ronald will greet Uncle Eddie. God bless you all. Beverley Denney Lubrano and Nick Lubrano
