    Well.. what can I say other than he and your family were a huge part of my life. Even before my dad passed they were hanging out all the time and I saw him regularly. In my childhood there were many fond memories of playing in the alley and see Eddy come home or if not seen always heard with the whistleing. In fact I was obsessed with being able to whistle that clearly and did it. The grape vines fort in your yard and who can forget boy scouts. I don’t think I ever saw him down ..always happy. I remember going to cola camp ground and getting to camp and ride the honda. I was there the night Nixon resigned and we watched on a black and white TV. I don’t know why I remember that but I do. There is not a time that I don’t drive up the 700 of wheeler ave and look at the house (you’res)sometimes I would see him and wave.. I am there often coming from walking my dog at the park on my way to Dunmore. I loved him and your family and we still have the great memories…
