I am so very sorry to hear of Eddie's passing. Although I had not seen him in years, I have so many great memories of him and all of Aunt Barb's kids coming to visit Grandma and Grandpa Lucas and the awesome family reunions that the Lucas clan used to have. Those were great days! Rest in peace Eddie and many prayers of comfort for Carol and Shawn and the rest of the family.

No words can express the amount of heartbreak I feel right now. I am truly sorry for your loss, Carol. Eddie was one of a kind! I will miss his smile, his deep voice and the nicknames he had for almost everyone, including me. I will forever hold our friendship close to my heart. With much love, Michelle
