Eddie, you will be missed. I am so happy I met you and your wife Linda. I met him at work, and when he came to work on my first night turn to make sure I was alright, I knew he was a great man. I loved him for that, and I enjoyed seeing him and his wife linda come in on the weekends. He was such a Keno player. He never sceamed for me to get his ticket in, he just did it himself. Which I didn’t mind. I can still hear him say, “Amanda can I get the laundry mat keys” I will miss Eddie Edwards

Uncle Edward was a great man. I remember him taking me fishing and some guy said your on private property, Uncle Ed started singing “this land is your land, this land is my land” He gave me my first ever gun a 22bb gun, the real deal no junk, wish I still had it. He took me to get my driver’s license when nobody else would. He was so funny, I wish he was alive so I could talk to him. Love u uncle ed
