Although Eddie was in my life for a short term, he will always be in my heart. I will always remember his love for the guitar, his ability to make me smile, and his ambitions. I'm just so relieved that I got to talk to him one last time before he passed. I wish that I could have shown up for the funeral service, but I will send out my sympathy and condolences to his family and other friends. LOVE, AMY
