Ida Smith and Viola Guy

You both have known Uncle Eddy longer than anyone else on this earth right now. You have known him since he was an infant to a mischievous young boy to the eloquent senior gentleman that he was. I offer my heartfelt condolences to you both and his close and distant relatives. He certainly will not be forgotten because he really was a one of a kind man. This earth angel has gone to reunite with his heavenly ones. Love you forever Uncle Eddy.

Dear Viola and Ida

Just want to let you know that my family and I are thinking of you and your family during your time of grief. We offer our deepest sympathies to you both and all the relatives.
Uncle Eddy was more than an uncle to me, he was a dear close friend and a brother. What a gentleman he was. This man had a heart of gold. He will be greatly missed.

Uncle Eddy

Christopher Dillon and I are so sad at the news of your passing. My son adored you and loved your stories and your time with him swimming in the pool and just hanging out. I will always remember our epic card games both Mexican rummy and cribbage. You were a genuinely kind and gentle man who is going to be greatly missed by so very many. I am so glad my son got a chance to know you and I hope you were aware that he absolutely loved you. You sir were always such a gentleman, a gentle soul, and a wonderful talker who always made your stories come to life in brilliant technicolor. We did not have enough time, and I wish we had spoken much more than we did after the separation of myself and your nephew but I will never forget our talks. I love you Uncle Eddy and I will miss you greatly.

It is very hard to say good bye I know. As hard as it is to let uncle Eddy go, be sure there is a crowd of his family and former friends up there with open arms welcoming him to Heaven. We all have fond memories of Uncle Eddy and none of us will ever forget him, a kind gentle soul who had such strength to go through this life down here and never utter a mean word or thought of another human. He represented what love is,rest easy in the arms of Jesus Uncle Eddy, miss you, see you in time. love ...Marnie

My heart is with you right now, wish to thank you so much for what you did for him. This pass year was really hard on you and also Michael, but this man deserved every bit of attention. He was a very special figure in our lives. If I could I would give him another medal, the medal of positiveness. Rest in peace Pepere.
