  1. I was so sorry to read about your loss. I cleaned your home back in the 90’s with a friend of mine. You were the sweetest couple. Eddie always spoke so highly of his boys. He was so proud of them. He was such a kind man, and so talented! He could bake, grow things , decorate. He also had such a love of life! I know he will be missed. There needs to be more Eddie’s in this world!
    May God comfort you now and in the months ahead.

    • I do remember you fondly, Beverly. Eddie and I have often
      wished for the same quality of cleaning, plus your great personality, in this day and age. It is heartbreaking to lose
      him but with lots of prayer we will make it. Thanks so much
      for your expressions of sympathy. Oh, he remained very proud of our sons to the very end.
