  1. Eddie it breaks my heart to hear of your passing. I had the opportunity to speak with your adorable daughter and I was able to share the last memory that I have of you. It was the time when we were on my mom’s steps and a song came on. You stopped everything that you were doing and became deeply engaged in the words of the song. I had never heard the song before and have never witnessed anyone become so involved in the words of a song like that before so you had my utmost attention. You sat on the steps, blocked out the environment, and sang the words outloud, ” you saw the best in me-when everyone else around could only see the worst in me”. Eddie when you sang that song you made the world stop because you were singing to your Creator, your maker, your comforter, your friend, your God. The one in whose arms you are in right now. I later found out that Marvin Sapp was the author of that song and everytime I heard it afterwards I thought of you. Thank you for the memory of that moment. I love you Eddie and you are so engraved on the template of my heart that your character, your spirit, your soul, and all the memories that I carry concerning you will never die. I will most certainly see you in our Father’s Heavenly Kingdom ❤
    From your Price street Sister sending her forever love.

    I hope and pray that your dad is at peace now and I pray that all of his children will remain strong at this time. I know you all meant the world to him.
