I don't know him but my nephew was friends with him. I'm sorry for the loss.

Eddie was such a nice young man. I'm so glad he and Jonah were friends. Eddie was such a good friend to Jonah and helped him through some tough times. May God comfort you all.

Praying for strength and peace for the entire family!

Eddie and I have been friends before we even started preschool and he has been in almost all of my classes every year. He was in orchestra with me up until this year when he dropped out to help himself graduate on time. He would always help my friends and I when we were feeling blue and we would always do the same for him. He has always been a little brother to me and the fact he passed just doesn't feel right to me. He will be safe in Heaven with my father there to protect him along with his passed family. I will always miss him and so will all of his friends. We will never forget him and we will live out his legacy of how much of a good friend and person he was. His family will always be in my heart along with his girlfriend Rikki. I will always remember the great things he has done for everybody in his life

Eddie was always someone I could talk to no mater what. Even if it was about stupid stuff he would always listen. I miss him so much.
