Uncle Eddie will always be remembered for the smile he always had on his face! There was never a time when we would get together at camp that he wasn't smiling!
I am sure that you (Uncle Eddie) and Dad (Buster) are having a grand old time at the big casino in the sky.
To Aunt Thelma, Kim & Sherry, Bruce & Velora, Lisa, John & Pam, all of the grandchildren and great grandchildren....you are all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We love all of you!
