Dear Forth Family,

I just wanted to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your husband "Eddie" and Father. Even though I only new him for a short time. I enjoyed the times we had together. Through it all58 I had the pleasure of getting to know all of you as well. He was a very special man to me. He will be missed greatly. I loved his humor and sarcasim. Even thru some of his toughest days, he managed to smile and make most of us laugh. He is gone, but not forgotten. I know he is in the best place he can be and at peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May you all find the strenth you need to get through this tough time with his memories.

Aunt Betty @ Family:

Just wanted to express our heartfelt condolences to the passing of Uncle Eddy. One childhood memory during the late 60's/early 70's i'll share was when Uncle Ed would visit our family w/ aunt Betty up on Cape Cod . My brother Mike ,sister Maureen and I would pile in the back of his convertible on a beautiful summer day and ride down the highway with Neal Diamonds "Kentucky Woman" blasting out the speakers. He was was our only Uncle that liked rock n'roll as much as us !! His hair pretty long for the times too ! We thought he was the coolest Uncle on earth !!Still do . God bless Uncle Eddie and all his family and grand children

All our Love ,
Viv, Terry, Sarah , Sally, Steve & Savanna
