I'm so sorry about Eddie and I'm sorry I couldn't make it to the funeral but I know he was such a sweet man and he's watching over Kennedy now and he's out of suffering. May God be with all of you and I will keep you in my prayers! You guys are amazing!

Eddie received what I call the "ultimate healing". He didn't get his healing here on earth, but got to go home to our Savior. He will be missed, but we have the assurance of getting to be with him again one day. I had several work 'sons' at the phone company and Eddie was one of them. I missed him when he left. My prayers are with the family and friends that God will wrap them with His comforting arms and give strength and peace as they go through this difficult time. We'll understand it better by and by.
