I worked with Eddie for many years at Sun Pipe Line in Nederland Texas. He was one of the finest christian men I ever knew. His home going is a loss for all the people he touched but is a great coronation in heaven for the life that was well lived! He truly was a great man and a credit too mankind. .Fest in peace Eddie! Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord for they do rest from their labors henceforth and forevermore. Ernest Brown
