    I didn’t know Eddie well. He would call my mother Tina Archie & they had some wonderful visits. I too had some fun phone visits with him. I hate that we lost contact with him after my mother passed away. Eddie was a sweet and gentle soul. There is no doubt that he is with our Father in heaven. God bless him. You’re in my prayers.

    Bobbi, I heard about Ed’s passing from Cathy a couple of days ago, as she saw Ed’s obituary in the paper. I am out of town so much with my new career. My prayers and thoughts go to you and Herb and your families.
