  1. Big Eddie, I will sorely miss you my friend. I have always admired your bias to fervently look for the good in people, to always try to do what was right, fair, and compassionate. Knowing you has been a plumb, pleasing pleasure! Rest in perfect peace my friend.

  2. Who will text me during football games now? Will miss your kind thoughtfulness and your big heart of compassion. Peace.
