  1. I want you to know that you are in my prayers. I wish I could be there with you all. I love you and as you said Aunt Vi,"God knows best." May you receive comfort.

  2. Uncle Eddie was a remarkable Godly man. He had such a beautiful singing voice and had a mellow tone to him always. I may not have spent a lot of time with him like my grandmother or my mother, but I will never forget his presence in a room and all of the stories my mother would tell me from her childhood. MY uncle Eddie was so endearing and just a pleasure to be around. He was my Grandfather's best friend, my Grandmother's dad, my mom and uncle's saving grace in times of trouble, and my aunt's loving husband. Uncle Eddie, you will be missed, but I am glad you are home now, without the pain or discomforts anymore. Rest well, I love you.
