    Janice, Dawn, Kim & Family. We wanted to offer our condolences to all of you. Uncle Eddie was a great guy who always had a smile on his face. We are going to miss his smile on his face walking in the front door at family parties and the holidays. I have great memories of playing ping pong and basketball with him at X-mas time in the garage at Bob & Donna’s. I always enjoyed having a conversation with Eddie because he was full of knowledge and history. I always learned something after speaking with him. I know this is not an easy time for you but hopefully the memories that we all had with him with bring a smile to your face. Uncle Eddie will never be forgotten, he was loved so much by many many people. He is now looking over us along with Nana, Grampy and Uncle Gary. Uncle Eddie we love you and will miss you so much. Until we meet again some day, please keep the rest of us safe. Love Wayne, Lisa, Brady & Ava.

    Janice, Kim, Dan, and family, Dawn, Alan, and family,

    It is with great sadness that I offer my sincere condolences to all of you. Losing someone you love so suddenly brings sorrow, and pain, so deep no words can describe their depth. I hope it brings you some small measure of peace as you struggle to get through each day, to know that Eddie, as he passed into God’s loving embrace, knew he was loved, and cherished, by his family. I pray that God grant you strength in the difficult days ahead.

    With my love and deepest sympathy,

    Mary Young
