Eddy was a kind soul. I wish we lived closer so I could have been a close friend. I was fortunate to have met him and his family when they visited in Nova and New Brunswick.
We can have comfort knowing that he is in a better place, free from pain, in the presence of God.

My prayers are with all the family.
