Brenda and Family I have no words to express my sorrow at the loss of Eddie. The world is a lesser place without him and I feel Heaven is improved with his presence there. I worked with Eddie at Watts Bar for several years and will always cherish the friendship we had. With the many conversations we had they almost always ended up with us talking about our families his in Arkansas and mine in North Carolina. May the Lord be with you, and Comfort you and your Family during this time.
