I went to high school with Eddie and haven't seen him in years. However, I will always remember Eddie to be one who would do whatever was needed for a friend or family member. His family and our country have lost a true hero and a great man. Eddie will be missed by all.
Charles L. Patrick, friend
You were a dear friend to those closest to me. Their lives were forever changed by your presence. We miss you.
EKB, friend of a friend
You were my friend, co-worker and shipmate. You always came into the room with a smile on your face, and always saw the bright side. Ed, may God grant you eternal peace. Know that the fight will go on.
Edwin H. Smith, friend
Ed was a great person with a wonderful heart. To my friend I say this: We will all miss you.
