I'm saddened by the passing of Eddie. I remember going to his house to hang out with Rick, who I have sadly learned has also passed. Those were good days in Plattsville. I will miss both of them. My prayers are with all of you. God Bless you. Kevin Inman, Omaha Nebraska

My sincere condolences to your family during this most difficult time, may you find comfort from the promise in the Holy Scriptures that there will be a future resurrection back to life. Jesus said, "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."--John 5:28, 29
