  3. Eddie was such a big part of our family. We loved to have her visit and she and Dot loved going shopping at the mall in Temple. She was such a great hostess and cook when we used to visit in Galveston and she always provided fresh seafood as her speciality. She was always full of life and loved her family. We will miss her and are praying for Mike, Sharon and Gary and their families.
