My fondest memories of Uncle Eddie involve horses and him working with them. I remember he and I taking a pair out for a race up in Baker at Uncle George and Aunt Barbara’s farm. We had a blast racing those two beautiful horses down that old dirt road. Uncle Eddie and Uncle Bill both helped instill my love of horses. I believe they are enjoying a great ride today down a glorious road in heaven ❤️🙏❤️
