    I remember Eddie when he was a student at our school Union here in New Castle. Eddie always had a smile and was one of the nicest young men that I have ever met. I will always remember the hug he gave me last year. Eddie you were one great guy and brave soldier. You will be missed. Beryl McClay

  4. And when he gets to Heaven,
    To St. Peter he will tell:
    One more soldier reporting sir,
    I've served my time in Hell.
