    I started my new job at agri supply last March, and Mr. Eddie was one of the first to welcome me and not only that but welcome me with open arms and befriend me. He was a kind soul and would do anything for anyone who he cared for. My deepest condolences and sympathies for the family. May he have every lasting peace now. Until we meet again Mr. Eddie.

    Never has there been a more kind, loving and generous soul. In my lifetime, I have never witnessed such deep love, total respect and devotion like he had for our mother. His love spilled over to every family member and we are forever grateful to have had him in our lives. . He will live on forever in our hearts as “grief is not a sign of weakness or lack of faith -but it is the price of love “. May you forever Rest In Peace 💗 We love you Eddie 💗
