I was so sorry to read about your husband Eddy and I wanted to give my warmest condolences to the family. To lose someone so loved breaks your heart but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 He feels our pain, sees our tears. At we can read in the Bible John 5:28,29 that not only does God care but He also gives the assurance that you will have your husband in your life once again. May all the beautiful memories you have give you calm and peace until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache. 💐

Condolences to the Wilson family during this time. Ed was my first senior manager when I started my career at cta. He will always have place in my heart and I thank him for the lessons and training he gave me. R.I.H. Mr. Wilson.

Although I only met Eddy once I could tell what a genuine nice person he was. My deepest condolences go out to Brenda and all his family for this tragic loss. My prayers are with you.

Condolences to all family of Eddie. I remember him when his family lived on 71st and he was so cute& little with shorts and cowboy boots on.

Eddie was a truly one of the nicest people I got to know over the last 13 years. I saw first- hand what a wonderful husband and father he was. My heart goes out to Brenda, Eddy, Molly and Billy--and the rest of the family. While we all have our own personal loss with his passing, the world has lost as well, as Eddy was truly one of the great ones. Rest In Peace my friend.
