Rosamond Goodlander on Jun 29, 2018

I was so saddened to hear of Eddie’s passing. He graduated with our daughter Connie from Mid Prairie. I can remember him as one of my youngest cousins. I am sorry for your tragic loss. I am sorry that I will be unable to attend visitation and the graveside service but I know that you will find comfort in knowing he had a good life. I am praying for your family. Your cousin , Rosamond Goodlander
