I always liked Eddie as he was just a good ole common folk like many of us. His untimely death was shocking to the entire school. He is missed.

Eddie was a good friend of mine. I like many others did not know what he was going through.I wish he had reached out. bt we can remember all the good times. He was a good guy.

Eddie was my bus driver. I can remember clearly the afternoon that he drove us home on bus 6. He was a senior and didn't have many months to go before graduating in 1982. News traveled very quickly about the tragedy with shock and disbelief because it had been less than 2 hours since I stepped off the bus. Eddie was a good bus driver, friend and football player.

Eddie was one of my best friends, so it truly saddens me that I and his other closest friends did not know what he was going through. I still think of Eddie often and my memories of him are of a loving, caring guy.

Eddie was a great friend of mine, too. We had a ball during Powder Puff football--and he even helped the girl's softball team out. He was a friend to everybody. I'll never forget that day. I can remember my dad choking up as he told me what had happened. Hate that I wasn't a better friend.

I was telling my husband last night what had happened to Eddie. It is still hard to believe to this day the situation. One of Brad's co-workers dido because he was ashamed of something he did. So Sad!! If he only knew that everyone would still love him and that we all make stupid mistakes!!

I will never ever forget that horrible day when you left us, Eddie. Little did I know that living through that experience would help me when I experienced another similar senseless tragedy in 1992. You were such a "big" boy that I guess I never realized how much you were hurting inside. I wish I would have known. RIP my friend.

I remember all the great times we had in school. You were a great friend and I was honored that you chose me to sponsor you our senior year. I do miss you.
