I never met Eddie, but feel like I knew him because of his wonderful family. Sounds like I missed meeting a wonderful human being. I feel truly blessed to become part of his extended family.

Oh, my son, words could never say how very much I miss you. I will always love you, cherish your memories, and long for the day when we will be together again, in glory. Meet me at the gate.

Every time I see a bike, I think about you Eddie. I just bought a cruiser so keep an eye out for me. It feels great to get out on the road again, but it also hurts a bit too. I will never forget the ride we took in Florida together.

Goodbyes are not forever
nor is it the end
When angels come to call away
A loved one or a friend.

The empty place thats left behind
Within this world we know
Reminds us just how brief a stay
We have before we go.

So when it's time to bid farewell
To one we'll dearly miss
Let's just say we'll meet again
And promise them this

The true gift is that love remains
Although we now must part..
Until forever and beyond
We'll keep you in our hearts.

We still miss you so much. Moe and I think and talk about you often. Every time we "ride in the rain" we think of you even more. It is hard to believe you have been gone for 3 years.

A little tribute, small and tender,
Just to say we still remember.
