I am so sorry to hear of Eddie’s passing. I have so many great memories on Mark and Eddie on the school bus and them walking to our house. Kenneth, Margie, Mark, and Eddie where great neighbors. I love you all so much. Eddie, give my parents and your dad as well as Allen and Dorothy hugs from me. I sure miss the good old days
Prayers for everyone
