I loved my Uncle Eddie so much! He was such a joy to be around! Always laughing and joking around! So many stories to tell. He always tried to cheat playing cards. So hilarious.... We love his fun ways so much! I cant count how many times he had us laughing to tears. He constantly shared his ice cream and food with the dog until she was to fat to get down the stairs. The world is gonna be a sadder place without you Uncle Eddie!!! I love you! Rest in Heaven !
