Eddie was a kind and gentle soul from childhood and he always stood up for the underdog. I remember playing with him and his sisters and brothers in our small mill town - these were some of my happiest memories. I am so happy that he was my cousin and I was able to be in his life - God is good. Thank you so much for welcoming in the arms of the most beautiful family - the McPeters. Gail, Rusty, Faye, Pat, Gerald and the whole McPeters clan you all are in my prayers. I am only a phone call away. Our Heavenly Father has called Eddie home to Suppertime - as the old song goes. Love to all. Beverly Ann.
