    Lion Eddies family, there is going to be a tremendous void Thursday when my great friend Eddie doesn’t appear as usual and stop for our weekly visit. He was one in a million kind of person that we all enjoyed working with him while he was a Tailtwister recently. He loved to visit with everyone that came to our meetings. May he R.I.P. until we all shall see him again.

    Darren and Kurt, I thought the world of your Dad, we all did. He always gave me a big hug and wore the biggest smile whenever I would see him. You two are in my thoughts and prayers.

    To The Stallwitz family,
    So sorry to hear of the passing of your father, Eddie. When I visited First Presbyterian Church & saw Eddie, he always greeted me with that nice smile of his & a handshake (which usually ended with a big hug). He will be truly missed. He was a gentle giant like my father, Sterling. Prayers to all of at this time from both my mother, Becky & myself.
    Sincerely, Martha Nilsson

    Darren and Kurt,
    So very sorry to hear about your Dad. Eddie was such a great man and someone to look up to. Not many of those types of men around these days. He’ll be surely missed by many people until we see him again in glory. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

    Darren and Kurt,
    I hate that you are suffering and hurt and I’d do anything to ease your pain, but all I have are words. Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your heart. My heart is with you.

    Darren and Kurt, I was and still am sorry to hear of your wonderful Dad’s passing. We have been friends since elementary school. We talked on the phone so often, in fact we had a long visit on the phone Sunday before he left to go be with Carolyn. I not only will miss him, but his great laugh, and our talks. Eddie was a great friend, and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and all his family. Joyce Fletcher Hill
