I was just thinking about Eddie and how much he helped me run those mountains and hills in the academy. Just when I thought I couldn't run another step, Eddie would double back and hold out the bottom corner of this his t-shirt and told me hang on and keep running. This was a daily event for us. I can't tell you how many shirts of his I ruined. I remember his voice and how he used to say "keep running "See Grooves"- (a variation of my last name) It will be 20 years September 12- 2013, since we graduated from Phoenix Regional Academy- class 251- Eddie- You were an inspiration, a good person and I was blessed to have known you.
