To the Rojas Family:

I am SO sorry for your loss. I worked with Eddie many years ago in Yuma. I remember that he was always smiling and joking. He was a great agent, and a nice guy, as well. I can't believe it has already been more than nine years...

I can't imagine your suffering, but I want you to know that Eddie is not forgotten. I hope that gives you some comfort.

Eddie, Rest in Peace!
