Dear Velta, I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Eddie. It was indeed a very sad loss for you and many of us at Amos Hill. Eddie was one of the most loyal and dedicated co-workers that we had. We shared many good times together during his over 30 years of service. It's sad that he was just beginning his retirement. My prayers and condolences go out to you and your extended family. May God Bless all of you. I am going to be out of town on Wednesday and am so sorry I will not be able to attend his service. I will be deeply thinking of each you. All my Best, John
