Dear Aunt Reita, Loree, Justin, and Monty. I’m so sorry to hear of Uncle Eddie’s passing. I’ll always remember him as a gentle man with a keen sense of humor and a sweet hug. He’ll be missed by many. Please know I’m thinking of all of you during this difficult time.

Eddie was a man of good humor, fun loving and devoted to family. He is remembered fondly by those who enjoyed his company in San Leandro, California.
