Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Eddie was such a great man. He was the best neighbor to my Mom and stepdad, Florence and Garrett Pittenger. My girls grew up learning about homing pigeons from Eddie. He always had a kind word for everyone and his attitude was ever positive even in the latter years of his life when he was in the nursing home. I am praying for his family to feel God's comfort and that they may be blessed with wonderful memories.
