    Eddie was such a humble soul. Always ready to tell a joke. Easy to talk to and he was a great story teller. I remember the many conversations we had about his experiences in Alabama. He went thru so much adversity and I was blessed to be in his presence. He will be missed.

    May the support of family and friends be a source of strength and the God of comfort a refuge in your time of sorrow. Truly sorry for your loss.
