He was my big brother and the only sibling I have. I always felt safe when he was around because he was so protective of me and loved me more than anyone or anything. He would do anything for any of his family and friends. Anyone who met him always said how friendly he was and what a great personality he had. He was so nice. It was impossible not to like him, even after just one meeting with him.
Eddie made a mistake and took Oxycontin and mixed it with beer and another drug one night. He made that mistake, paid for it with his life, and will never be able to learn from it.
He is missed by everyone who knew him, even if it wasn't for long. We all love him so much. We will never forget his blonde hair, blue eyes and red cheeks.
