Eunice, Stephanie, Jodie, and Dell, I am so sorry. He has been a tough fellow, battling his diabetes all these years. I first met Eddie when he decided to come to Dicks Creek to Church.....because he was dating Eunice. And Odell preached at Dicks Creek quite often. Odell was preaching a revival, the night I got saved in August 1965. I don't know, Eunice, you and Eddie might have been there. Later, I worked with Eddie at Contel for a couple of summers, then who would ever guess that you and Eddie would drive the Cherokee mail run to Whittier? Then, Steph...there was all our time together, I enjoyed working with you and you kept us up to date on your family as we all did. It has been lovely to call you all FRIENDS. Eddie will be missed. Praying for comfort and cherished memories. AND He is HEALED now, ULTIMATELY!! Love in Christ, Pauline Beck
