Susie, Danny, Rhonda and family, I was so saddened to hear of Eddies passing. He was such a great guy. I pray that youll find comfort in the memories that you have of him. Memories are a gift of God that death cannot destroy. I also trust that you know he has no more pain as promised in Rev. 21-4. Eddie RIP.

Im so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort (Psalms 83:18 & 2Corinthians 1:3,4) sustain you all this difficult time. Jesus taught us to pray for Gods Kingdom to come because He knew it would be the solution for all mankinds problems even death.(Revelation 21:3-5)
