Eddie, even today I think about you often. You left your positive mark on this world and on me. Many times I have reflected on your friendship and the occasional times we spent working together. You were a gentle and kind hearted guy with an easy smile and good word. I remember sitting with you in the hospital holding your hand and I hope you heard my voice. I know your kids are proud of you and that you watch over them.
