My uncle never said a negative word about me when I was nothing more than the town lunitic. I will miss him greatly
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.
