My heart hurts to my soul over the loss of my brother. He loved and cared about his family so much. Him and momma both helped me raise both of my children. Eddie was always present in their lives when their fathers weren’t. It’s true that Eddie would give you his last penny if you needed it. God knows the sacrifices Eddie has made. And if I would just attempt to thank him for everything he did for me and momma he would ALWAYS say “you can thank God for that. I love you momma and Eddie and I will see you one day in one of the many mansions God has prepared for us.

As I sit here before putting my mother and brother to rest .I want everyone to know how much my mother loved Eddie and how much Eddie loved our mother.Monetary things didn’t matter to him.Our mothers well being did.He spent the majority of his life carrying for her.He loved his family ❤. Everyone knew my mom while Eddie sat in the shadows taking care of her.He had a journey like I said in his obituary. He loved his family. He just couldn’t bear for her to go without her.I was worried about his salvation when the pastor said that God knew what was in his heart and rest assured he was in heaven with my mom.The sacrifice s he made throughout his life was to take care of our mom.You my brother will never be forgotten but we wanted you to stay with us.Now you both can rest until we see you again. You Jimmy,Daddy,Mama and you.You have your crown sweetheart 💕. It’s yours because of your selfless love you had for our family. I am so heartbroken 💔. But I know that you are in a better place. Forever indebted to you for the love of our family.

I’m shocked to hear of Eddie’s passing. I met him years ago and he was such a character and kept everyone laughing. RIP Eddie.
