Dear Aunt Harriet & Family,
My love for Uncle Eddie will live in my heart forever. I have so many wonderful memories of our times together. My heart is broken with his passing, however I know he is living it up in heaven with my Dad. I could hear my Dad saying, "coming Eddie you're going to love it up here" I am hoping they are coordinating some really good stock gains for us all. They did love to talk stocks.
Aunt Harriet, I love that last picture you sent of the two of you. I said to you, you look really happy and your reply was "we are very happy" you will always be a beautiful couple and I am so happy you had so many wonderful years together.
Love and Hugs,
2nd cousin ,Thayer ,Kansas
Was taken back by Eddie’s passing. Was just showing my Mom, Lou Volmer Sevart, a picture Brenda posted of Eddie and Harriet, taken earlier this year. I remember him being so kind. I’m so sorry for your loss. But as I remind loved ones left behind, be grateful and thankful to God for loaning Eddie to our family. Ya know, He could have loaned him to another family but God didn’t, He chose ours. Now Eddie has a new assignment. My prayers are for your family.
